    Has anyone found a *decent* external hard drive enclosure that supports SATA-II internally and 1394b (FW-800) externally? I've been shopping around but quite honestly I haven't found anything that looks half-decent.

    Just wondering how many MacShack'ers have nice-looking external enclosures...

    I have an eSATAII/USB enclosure. I got an eSATA express card to go with it.

    See that almost seems like more money than it's worth because I already have a spare drive.

    After buying an enclosure and an express card, I've practically bought a 500GB external MyBook drive :(.
