    i just bought this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182122 rosewill enclosure after doing some research. I am looking for a 1tb hd to put in it that is fast and quiet, my budget is under $125 if at all possible. Could someone please suggest a brand or model of harddrives i can be on the lookout for?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    ive got that enclosure and a few other rosewill ones, very nice and simple cases.

    I have used them with:

    Caviar black (fantastic drive)

    Samsung F1

    Hitachi (this one only has 16mb as opposed to the others with 32mb...bu a fairly low price):

    all of them are virtually silent & under 125$, ive used them in my old macpro and now in enclosures....the good thing about the enclosures (rosewill) is the aluminum ones i have dissipate the heat away from the drive and the one you have has nice airflow to get more ehat out and away from the drive making it run cooler and less noiser.

    The enclosure accepts 3.5" SATA, so any 3.5" SATA drive will work.
