I'm still getting people bringing me corrupted drives on firewire more often than USB. There is a mystic about firewire that you find fans galore that will write one or the other is faster. Here I'm not going to tell anyone to connect via firewire unless it's Apple or a Linux machine.
Back to the hard drive case. I like any unit that has a fan.
I picked up one of these last week. -> http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=EN391&cat=CSE
I recently decided that I needed either a second HDD on my laptop in the second bay or that I would purchase and external, but I figured that I could make a better external than one I could purchase pre-built.
Current laptop specs
- HP 1.9 GHz Turion 64x2 Dual-Core
- 4GB Ram
- 160GB Current internal HDD
- Vista Premium Home Edition
I was looking at purchasing a Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Now as far as the enclosure goes I have no clue. There are way too many out on the market with varying prices and options. I do know that I would like to connect to my laptop via firewire 4-pin, but aside from that I dont know.
Does anyone have any info they can share. Also please give me your opinion the hard drive I have my eye on.
Thanx for your help in advance.
