    OK so I just bought a 3TB drive, only to find that my external enclosure (Icy Dock MB559 - very good otherwise) doesn't support 3TB disks - doh!

    I know the Icy Dock MB662 *will* support 3TB disks - anyone know of any others in the uk?

    Ideally:
    a. Single disk enclosure
    b. Supporting 3TB disks (obviously)
    c. FW800 or Thunderbolt

    Apologies for replying to my own post, but FYI

    • I went ahead & bought an Icy Dock MB662 dual enclosure in the end
    • It supports 3TB drives in BIG (all disks appear as 1 big drive) mode, although not in JBOD (all disks appear as separate drives)
    • It's great - quiet, compact, etc - a quality piece of kit that I would wholeheartedly recommend
