    What's up everyone,
    I'm looking into getting an external exclosure...should I stick with good old USB 2.0, or look into getting USB 3? Is it too new to get it? Anyone have one they are currently using? Appreciate the advice....
    :D

    not much point in spending the extra money on USB 3.0 since your computer can't use it.

    I heard there are drivers to make it compatible?

    No, you don't have USB 3.0 hardware, so it's not a driver issue.

    So can you recommend some 2.0 ones?

    I'd be interested in knowing what drive enclosure you got and how you like it, if you have time.
