Matthew gets a well deserved weekend off.

Decent price, looks cool, but it’s a little expensive for me If i was going to get an enclosure, iwould get a cheap one, not a pretty one. if it included a small hard drive for that price than maybe…


#10

you can get decent ones from NewEgg for this price or cheaper… no thanks…


#11

Just when I buy one from the Egg (for much more), this comes up. Oh well, at least I got a bag of poop.

At least the one I ordered came with a fan, does this one come with one?


#12

Well maybe we should have seen an awesome 250GB HD this morning and then possibly bundled it with a case. I mean I don’t really just have a hard drive sitting around.


#13

Now, was that a Weird Al reference near the start? Great!


#14

Does this case support SATA or IDE hard drives??? Be smart WOOT and tell us.


#15

USB2 Maxes out at 480mbps, but that’s on a completely clear USB bus (how many devices do you have plugged in *right now?)

FireWire maxes out at 400mbps, or about 50 megabytes per second.


#16

Check out Tiger Direct they have a ton and they are pretty cheap too


#17

There’s a smaller one for half the price at Newegg:

Not the best Woot…but who cares. I’m still on a high from my 3 Bags of Crap in the mail as we speak!


#18

Too bad you can get one of these that is 5.25" (disc drive size) for the same price…Oh well - maybe tomorrow.


#19

Its not bad, but even if their is a HD tomorrow, it’ll have to be IDE, and thats just not practical nowadays. Buying a SATA HD from newheres is already like having a constant woot. If it was SATA internal interface that would be more up to speed, those HDs are cheaper for better speed, quality and smaller size…i mean come on.
