Hi, I am looking to buy a Sata to USB 2.0 case enclosure. For a 3.5 hard drive. I don't want to spend more $40.00 to $50.00. I found this one on TigerDirect.Com
Is this a good case? Or any other ideas please.
Looks good to me. But maybe you can find similar ones.
The problem is always the controller in it. It can be darn slow or unreliable or you can get a winner.
Its not easy these days to choose the right product.Good Luck with it.
Here is a couple of suggestions that I know work well.

Thanks getit29. The Rosewill one looks like something that I may be interested in, because it has a build in fan with on/off switch and power on/off switch. Very nice.
