I bought one of the recent SSD deals on here, and needed an enclosure to put the old HD from my laptop into.
There were plenty of cheap enclosures from china and bay, but from past experience they have been pretty poor quality and not very robust.
I found this decent brand caddy / enclosure at a price not too much more, USB 3 too!
