    i looked at the COOLMAX 15436 and liked it
    it has SATA & IDE connecters and for external ports usb2,0, firewire and esata
    the only problem is lots of people have had problems with it so i was wondering if there were any alternatives with these features? and if there was one with most except it was only sata could i then attach one of those sata to ide connecters or vise versa if it was ide

    thanks

    I like those "cooldrive" ones, but check out macsales.com or some inexpensive ones.
