Hello everyone and yes I did do a thorough search already. I learned a lot but I am still confused.
I have a Seagate ST-3120026A (Barracuda 7200.7 Plus 120, Ultra ATA/100) hard drive that I would like to move to an external enclosure. Speed is not really an issue; I’m not going to be burning from this drive. I have both firewire and USB available and I’m just looking for the most inexpensive solution. As near as I can tell from the big external enclosures thread I’m looking at Mapower KC51C1 or a Kingwin KH-525U-S. I have gleaned that aluminum and fan are desired for Hard Drive mounting and that Oxford chipsets and firewire are desirable for proper operation.
Can someone recommend a solution?
