Ill come clean from the start...im a PC user...not here to start any wars though, as theres a fair few of you and firewire is being pushed on the mac platform I figured this would be a good place to come and ask.

Im looking for a firewire 5.25" Drive enclosure with the oxbridge ide/firewire converter for use with a few CD/DVD drives (need a couple or 3 of these babies) If anyone can supply with them for less than 70 each including shipping and tax (to/in the UK) or point me in the direction of an on-line site offering the above please get in touch with me. My address is public but just in case its here (mercutio98uk@blueyonder.co.uk)

Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer any help :)

well, i have one (an ads pyro).. im not willing to sell it -- but i CAN tell you that is really a great device, and hasnt given me any trouble, is compatible with both my mac and pc, and is very quiet (if you disconnect the fan)... it is well worth the money.

good luck in finding one!
