    I replaced the standard 500GB drive from my Mid-2010 17" MBP with a 1TB one, and now I'd like to get a case to turn the old 500GB one into a portable USB drive.

    I've had a look on fleabay, and whilst they're cheap, some say they only support data rates of 80mbps and some say they're limited to drives up to 160/320/400GB. Some don't state limits at all.

    Can someone recommend one that'll take my drive and give me full capacity and full USB2 speeds?

    Thanks

    Picked one up off Amazon.
    Think it was about £6, works fine.
