    I'm replacing my 320GB HD from my late '08 MBP with a new Hitachi 500GB unit.

    It would be a shame to let the old HD go to waste, so I was wondering what SATA enclosures you guys and girls are using? Preferably something that will connect to my MBP using either Firewire 800 or USB 2.0. There are so many out there, I don't want to buy the wrong one and be disappointed with the quality. Thanks in advance.

    I've been using this IcyDock Firewire 800 enclosure with a Seagate 1.5TB HD for about a year and a half now. It's fast, very quiet, runs cool and looks cool too. It's aluminum housing looks really nice next to a MBP or iMac too.
