    Hi all,

    I'm looking for an external hard drive enclosure (usb 2.0 and / or firewire) with the primary concern being that it is quite. Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    anyway- get an enclosure without a fan. plus, the drive can make quite a lot of noise, and not be very quiet. if you do not have the drive yet, look for quite the quiet one.

    well if your looking for cheap weibetech isnt really the place to buy from, or la cie. you pay a premium for the quality. sorry i cant refer you toa cheaper enclusure maker, but weibetech makes empty enclosures

    Did you find any cheap ones for firewire? I want to take my 60gig internal out of my old G3 and use it externally for my new G5 for backup.
