    Default External Enclosure

    Instead of adding a HDD to the case drive bay I was thinking about going External.

    What do you guys think of this Brand? Its only $25

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817193022

    Supports IDE and SATA. I never had a External before.. are the speeds much different then having it connected to a sata port on the motherboard?

    One benefit, it wont drain any power off the PSU since it has its on power source.

  2. The following user thanks Lil' Dead For this above post:

    I ordered it today. This will be nice to have for easily hot swapping HDDs for storage.

    Excellent choice, Eagle makes some great enclosures. We've reviewed several and have been very impressed with their lineup.

    Yeah, I just got it today. I love it when things just works!

    Popped in my old IDE drive, turn it on.. didn't need any drivers.

    Thanks, I've been looking for a pretty solid/cheap enclosure for a bit now, I'll be ordering this within the next few weeks... please be sure to post an update if you end up having any issues soon.

    So an enclosure just basically converts your hard drive to a portable drive, providing it power and USB connection to a PC?

    it's not that it makes it into a portable drive. An enclosure gives your desktop or laptop hard drives a case, power supply, and computer connections (gives you an external HD, in many cases a good bit cheaper). Smaller ones can be powered via USB but larger ones come with an AC adapter.
