I need a cheap (and functioning) 5.25" USB 2.0 enclosure

anyone know a good online vendor with something in the 20-30 range?

DealSonic.com has quite a few in your price range.

Hey beatrice…Welcome to the forum and I’ll second bender’s statement of www.dealsonic.com

As already said above. Here’s one for you.

… but maybe not if you are using a Pio DVR 111D.
There is a rather long thread about that box and the USB/Firewire combo box (like mine) over in the Pio discussions.
