What's the best enclosure to purchase in order to put a HDD inside and connect to an HR34?
I looked at the Giant thread regarding drives and there is no clear winner, so I wanted to create a dedicated thread for enclosures.
The first one is just a dock, not really an enclosure, and many reported having problems with it because of the power button. I'm not sure what the benefit of this dock is over enclosures other than it's an easy plug and play.
The second seems like a great price and had some positive reviews, but neither of these have fans, which may be problematic due to heat issues from the drive itself.
Is it best to find a good eSata enclosure that also has a fan? If so, which do you recommend? I've used an Antec MX-1 before, and it's ok, hoping to find something better though. And its hard to find since its discontinued..
Please post suggestions of what has worked for you, especially reasonable priced enclosures with fans.
