3.5inch External Hard Drive Enclosure

4 replies
Found 4th Mar 2008
Hi,

Any suggestions on where I can pick a decent one up cheap which features:
USB
SATA
Power Supply
& some form of cooling?

I'm planning taking out my hard disk from my pc and using this as an external network drive and connecting this via usb to my mac mini and accessing files on this from my windows laptop etc.

Cheers

if i may recommend, instead of getting an external hd enclosure and link to the minimac, why not either
1. invest in a nslu2 and link the hdd to that...

or better,
get a NAS enclosure (with usb too), such as those found here:
*********.co.uk/Ext…tem

this way you can connect them directly to your router and no need to have the minimac on to access the files
edit : the ******** in the url is cgi dot ebay dot co dot uk (it doesn't seem to allow me to enter it)
