    Default Info on HDD Enclosures

    I was planning to buy a 3.5" HDD Enclosure for the purpose of portability with any of my 2 HDDs instead of getting a external HDD
    My questions:
    Is it a good decision in terms of speed and safety?
    What will be a good choice for a enclosure? e.g. chinese ones, brand ones, etc.
    Where to get them and what would be an expected price?

    800-1000tk ones are chineese ones, not from any well-known brand....
    and the advantages include USB power, no techinical problems now and then, looks good and compact, also quite small........

    You need a separate power supply for those. As in, you have a USB going into the PC AND a cable going into the power socket in the wall. Big hassle if you ask me.

    i've seen and used one where power would be taken through another USB
    but that was a 2.5" (laptop) HDD enclosure
    the same not applicable for 3.5" ?
