    I swapped out my stock 1Gb HD for a nice SSD. Now I'm looking for an enclosure for my old HD, which requires power. Also, it seems like a thick drive, and a lot of enclosures seem pretty thin.

    Any suggestions?

    I also have two other "naked" drives, one a Crucial M4 64GB SSD (SATA 6Gb, 2.5") and the other a Western Digital 120 HD, (SATA 1.5, also 2.5")

    Is there some kind of multi-enclosure I could put all of these in? I really don't need anything like a Drobo, (it can't handle both 3.5 and 2.5" drives at the same time), but having six external drives is kind of ridiculous. I have 3 other externals.

    You might consider a USB3/SATA docking station.
    Should handle just about any 3.5" drive out there.
    Go to amazon and enter "usb3 sata dock" into the search box -- you'll see many choices.
