    I ran all three of my 211's for years on EHD docks, never used a self contained drive.

    Swapped out drives when they became fuill and put in another 250GB SATA drive.

    I prefer smaller drives so WHEN (not if) the drive fails I lose only 250GB max not 1-2 GB of programming.

    I have Siig, Thermaltake BlacX, and several other brands.

    Any SATA/USB 2.0 dock will work.

    One dock for each receiver and swap out drives as needed.
