I want to purchase an external HD enclosure and put a 120GB SSD (SATAIII) in it.

Does anyone know if there is one available for use with Thunderbolt? I'm going to transfer my entire iTunes library to it (including movies), so I want the fastest possible interface.

If one isn't available for Thunderbolt, with USB3.0 be fast enough? I'll be using it with my MBP 15" Retina.

TIA for any info!

You could purchase a "straight-up" Thunderbolt external HD:
