    i recently just switched from PC to iMac. I have 3x SSD that I like to use externally for my iMac.
    How can I do it?
    Are there any casing that i can put my SSD in and use it?

    since the offers are limited

    thunderbolt would be the fastest, USB 3.0 fast and cheap, you have the choice :). I have two of the FW800/USB 3.0 enclosures, one with an ssd, and it's not that bad, because I have only an iMac with USB 2.0 and FW800.

    Another option will be, since there is nearly no enclosure offer without any harddisk/ssd, to open an Lacie Rugged and change the harddisk to your own ssd. Some users here have made this switch.

    Wich full speed do you get? It's USB 2.0, quite slow. Anyway there are also 3.0 cases.
