External Firewire 2.5" SATA HDD / Case / Caddy / Enclosure

Looking for a self-powered (i.e. does not need external power / uses power drawn from the Firewire BUS) 2.5" SATA enclosure.

The cheapest I can find is this one at Scan:


(£27.82 inc VAT, p&p extra).

I have a 160GB 2.5" SATA drive spare from a Macbook Pro upgrade and so I'd like to use this as an external drive without spending too much cash. Can anyone recommend a product to me?

Had the same prob with a spare 2.5" Harddrive from my ps3 & wanted to use it as a backup drive for PC so bought one of these from e.b.a.y. seller from hongkong but arrived within 7 days!! only £5 delivered BARGAIN.

E.B.A.Y item no. 270435993089
That is excellent value; although it's not Firewire.

The issue is that my spare hard drive needs 750ma and USB only provides 500ma max. So I need to plug the drive into two USB ports in order to drive this disk. Firewire has 1500ma so can easily drive the disk :)

I've added some REP to you for finding a SATA drive enclosure and reviewing it :)
