View Full Version : recommend a dual external HDD enclosure
08-04-2008, 01:44 PM
I don't intend to do RAIDing of any sort. I just have several external drives and it would be nice to keep them together rather than having them both rolling around. The hard drives will be SATA and I only have USB 2.0 connections. Can anybody recommend a good enclosure that is reliable?

I've been browsing the enclosures at Newegg and this product, while quite pricey, seems to overwhelmingly stand out in terms of its function and ratings. anybody have any experience with it?

edit: woah... nevermind. it only supports IDE drives.

oh screw it. none of the dual-bay enclosures seem to have good reviews. i'm just gonna go with two single bay enclosures.
I'm going with the one below. It's slightly pricey, but has really good ratings and will be somewhat future proof with it's eSATA capability. And it looks nice. :) :
