    I want to build an external RAID array for backup / extra storage for my laptop. There's a lot of cases and none of them are brands I really know so any suggestions?

    specs I'm looking for the case to support (pretty standard):
    - preferably 3.5"
    - 2x disk (or more for upgrades)
    - 500gb-1tb RAID I
    - external
    - a/c powered
    - USB (not firewire)

    Thanks!

    When I go down to my local Fry's (or even PC-Club) they have TONS of inexpensive case only solutions and more complete units like the Buffalo units..

    Want to check out all the units? Go here, it's a great site..

    Go under the "NAS" section at the top

    And I had an AMS single drive enclosure that I was very happy with. I had to deal with customer service and it was a pleasant experience. I would trust them again.

    I'm sure there are better deals if you look, thats just what I saw on newegg
