[Archived] External Hard Drive Enclosures.

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to find a cheap external hard drive and I came across something I didn't know existed...external hard drive enclosures. Are these any good...i.e. as good as normal external hard drives? I'll have a spare 80gb internal IDE hard drive soon, I'd be saving myself a lot of money if I can just use that instead of buying a proper external hard drive.

Edit: I assume I would need a 3.5" one, am I correct?

If you intend to leave the external drive online for any period of time, buy an enclosure that includes a cooling fan. You'll pay a bit more for it, but it'll be cheaper than eventually having to buy a new disk.
