    Urgent: External HDD

    Hey Guys,
    I rather urgently need some advice and some suggestions. I basically require some form of external HDD enclosure, which I can move my Hitachi 7200rpm 60gb 2.5" laptop drive into, so that I can connect to it via USB using another PC.

    I've not got much experience with this, so could someone recommend a good external enclosure, and also, could anyone tell me if the external enclosures available on the market for 2.5" laptop HDDs support such high speeds as 7200rpm... They all seem a little flimsy when I think of the speed the drive goes at

    Thanks for any help you guys can give, this is uber urgent.

    Hi,

    I use a Akasa Integral 3.5" with a standard Western Digital 7200RPM hard drive, there is in fact a 2.5" version which should suit your needs.

    http://www.akasa.co.uk/akasa_english...ak_en_01bk.htm

    I wouldn't worry about the speed of the drive, it's hardly a problem these days seeing as nearly 100% of the drives used are 7200RPM.

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,

    Mark
