    Need 3.5 Ext Hard Drive enclosure

    I am after a good 3.5 IDE Ext hard drive enclosure. Any recommendations? It needs to have USB and Firewire. I am putting a 300+ hard drive in it to backup my pics etc. Thanks

    I've heard good things about IcyBox's, how about this one available on Scan:

    I've got essentially the same model, but with only a USB2 connection. It runs very well, is easy to connect up the drive, and I've had no problems.

    So you should be fine with that one.

    Yes that one looks good. Another make that you could try is Viper but I don't know if they do firewire or not.
