firewire enclosure

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I am towards the end of my PC to Mac switch. I've got a 30 Gig drive in my Dell Inspiron that I would like to use as an external backup drive for my PowerBook. (The Inspiron will retain it's original 4 Gig drive). Can anyone recommend a firewire enclosure? I'm looking for a cheap solution so I am only considering Firewire 400 (<$100). Thanks.

    I have one... I just got the cheapest Oxford 911 chipset case I could find on

    I think it's CoolMac, and I've never had any problems. I think it was 40 bucks or so.

    I purchased an ADS dual Firewire/USB 2.0 enclosure @ Can accomodate an 3.5 harddrive -or- cdrom comes with both usb/firewire cables and face plate w/led activity light. Did pay a hefty $79.99 for it, but I can use my pioneer a04 on my pc & powermac g4. It works really well. Also comes with Intech Tools *FREE* with some nice bechmark tools and such. Very happy with it.
