Why? Because I want to use it with my laptop. And as many of you are BenQ oracles I thought you might have first hand experience yourself. I’ve read that max power output is a concern to achieve 8x - 16x speeds. I’d prefer one that uses wall power instead of sapping power from the USB 2.0 port. I also have a firewire port. An enclosure with USB & firewire would be fine, too, just not firewire only.
This is for a toshiba (PC).
