Oh yeh,
What is a USB Hard Drive Encloser, does it come with a hard drive?
I'm guessing it doesn't and thats why its cheaper.

You buy your own Hard Drive and stick it in. You can get them for DVD-RW drives too.

Forgot about Dabs.com

Did the dabs one seem to be the best deal then? I'm looking for one too at the moment. thanks

edit: found these on ebay, slightly cheaper but not much. cgi.ebay.co.uk/BRA…tem

Try these, They take a laptop harddrive.

These are about the size of a wallet and powered by the usb ports, I use mine all the time, it is as easy to use as a pen drive and pops in your coat pocket. I got mine off of ebay ready assembled about a year ago.Add a 20GB or 40GB harddrive for £40 - £50. I have the larger unit (take 3.5inch desktop harddrives) as well,it is mains powered and fairly chunky (but much cheaper per GB), I use it for bigger drives etc - but the smaller one is my preference.
