    Got a 750GB hard drive (2.5) that needs an enclosure. I'm willing to pay a premium for something reliable. Preferably USB 3.0 and for it to draw power and send data through the same cable!

    Can anyone recommend anything? Everything looks cheap and tacky on amazon!

    I prefer some of OWC's enclosures, such as these:

    OWC Mercury On-The-Go Portable
    OWC Mercury Elite Pro

    ^^ Seconded on the OWC enclosures. I have two Mercury Elite Pro Dual Minis (hold 2x 2.5" each) and they are awesome. :) (Not USB 3.0, though... not that I need it though :))
