Whats better overall, and will i get the same type of speeds from a factory made ext burner and a self made enclosed?


#2

the advantage of factory is that you don’t have to worry about compatability issues between the case and the drive…


#3

The advantage of self made is you can use a drive which is only available as internal as external. Both have its cons and pros…
The Con would be that there are compatibility issues with some drive/case combinations because of conversion Chip used or with powersupply being to low/unstable for certain drives.
The Pro would be to use a drive only available as internal model and use it on USB2 or firewire…
I would not decide on whether the drive is available as an External version or not. I would decide on the specs only. If the drive you want is available as an External drive I would buy it and if not there is no other way to make it yourself…
