I'm planning on buying my own enclosure and HD instead of a pre-made package because 1) the prices are generally a little cheaper and 2) some hard drives have 5 year warranties (most externals only have 1 year, Seagates have 3 year). 1) Do you have any recommendations for 3.5" enclosures with Firewire? 2) Do you have anything to keep in mind when buying? Perhaps some brands to just stay the hell away from? I know I should buy a metal case with a passive cooler rather than a plastic case with a fan.
