    New to Mac here... just bought a 24" iMac... my question is simple, I have two 120 HD's and a 200 HD that I am looking to format for my new iMac.

    As far as enclosures go, is the one below any good???????

    I ask this because the sucker's only 18bucks. Don't know much about stackin', or biology either for that matter, but I do know that this here thingy is cheap. So if you folks know if it's good enough, please let me know. If not, then recomendations are good too.

    well not many details about the drive available, ports, etc.
    but 1st guess is that it takes a SATA drive and your 120s and 200 are prolly ATA, so you need a regular IDE case.
    2nd, SATA cases tend to be pricier since it is newer tech and that is dirt cheap, so I would guess it is crap, garbage.

    Get a Cool Drives, MacAlly, or OWC Elite case. Go either Firewire 400 or 800. Plan to spend $25-50 per case.

    It also depends on what kind of look you want. Search the threads (HDD Enclosure) and you will see what people have recommended. I don't have the time right now to go posting links.

    Good luck.
