    I'm looking to buy a new external hard drive enclosure (3.5", 2 bays) preferably with both USB and FW connectivity. Oh yeah, and it has to look :cool: I like the FireXpress ones, but I have yet to find a review or anything about them. Anyone know of any enclosures that are worth looking at?

    Here you go, they have hard-drive cases with no HDD in them, but it seems the one's with HDD are pretty cheap compared to buying the case alone. It also seems like they use Seagate HDD's so that's pretty good. IDK, i've herd good things about them, but don't own one myself, but you may want to do some research on your own! =)

    if you could handle one with just usb 2.0, the western digital my book 250gb goes on sale a lot. last week or 2 weeks ago it was 79.99 after rebates from places like best buy, office depot, etc...
