I need some help selecting a drive.
I want to put the drive in an external enclsure and connect it to a laptop (inspiron 8200). The laptop does not support usb 2.0 or SATA I or II. I need a recommendation on an express card that has these features if anyone knows of a good choice please mention this as well.
I want one that when checked for errors and burn quality is top notch, and produces consistent quality burns and is fast at burning.
I will be using it to backup lots of GB of data and for burning .ISO files are the most important areas of use.
I have read alot and I would appreciate if someone could kick a little knowledge because I can't figure this stuff out myself.
I would also like to know if besides these drives listed there are any other drives to consider, and if there are any special considerations regarding chipset/controller/firmware.
Please tell me what these drives are best for and/or what drive you think meets my needs.
