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.

Thanks
Mr. Bill :bow:

Thanks Chef.

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.

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.

Mr.Bill :iagree:
