View Full Version : 3.5" Drive enclosure

23rd July 2008, 11:38
I'm looking for an external USB 3.5" drive enclosure.

I've got a spare 160GB SATA HD sitting doing nothing so I thought it could be useful as an external drive. So foremost I'm looking for a USB enclosure for SATA drives. However I do also have some spare IDE 3.5" drives, so an enclosure that can take both SATA and IDE drives would be better.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Where the best prices are and makes of enclosure?

I have a Conceptronics External IDE 3.5HD case, and it works fine, i has now 2 years of working and it's very good.

Case is made of very strong material with very simple design, you open the case very easly it has a on/off button with blue light, and the usb connecter on the back site. If i had to buy other i would buy the same.
