    I am trying to reduce he amount of wires on my desk, so am looking for a decent quality enclosure that has FireWire 800 and USB. I would also prefer a tooless enclosure, to swap drives without having to unscrew them each time.

    I have given up looking for a plain empty thunderbolt enclosure that one can swap standard 3.5 in bare hard drives in they do not seem to exist. I wonder if thunderbolt will ever become available to the masses.

    I have tried esata, but this does not seem to be supported by Mac, and I have just done a clean install of Mac os Lion on my 2011 Mac mini, and I want to stick with things that are compatable with Mac.

    After my time machine restore of my hard drive, I found an error message saying it could not transfer some files called silicone images. I looked this up and it seems during a clean install, the os puts aside esata drivers into an uncompatable folder.

    So now I think I will stick with either USB or FireWire.
