    Drive enclosures?
    I'd like to find a good quality enclosure for my 400GB Seagate Barracuda. The drive is an Ultra ATA and I'd like a Firewire 800 enclosure. I'd like one without a fan, if such exists, or as close to dead quiet as possible otherwise.

    Any suggestions? :-)

    Regards,
    Ken

    i usually goto newegg.com, not the best price but they ship soooo fast, good selection. i like their web site because of the costumer reviews and the organization cant be beat. zipzoomfly.com works too. you can save a few $$ using ths pricegrabber thingy and up the hassle.

    i have a fire wire enclosure i recently put an old pata drive into it. with a macbookpro, osx 10.5..4 i was able to read its microsoft format nfs. i formated on my mac for hfs+ anyways.

    consider a esata box too, need to also get a esata adapter (macbookpro)

    Any thoughts about the Icy Dock enclosures? I found two on newegg which each come with USB & Firewire cables. See links:

    They seem to get good reviews and should meet my needs. The only question now is whether or not it's worth the extra money for 800 vs. 400?
