Best Single/Dual Bay Hard Drive Enclosure

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i'm shopping for a new enclosure to put in a 750gb and a 500gb

I require a few things

I would like a fan but it's not a nessecity.

It should turn on and off with the PC but not a nessecity.


Also what is JBOD?

I don't want to do any Raid options i want to do either when it takes the two HDD's and makes them into one HDD in "My computer" or just have two seperate HDD's in "My Computer"

What would be safer? In case of a crash?

I have a 500gb My book and i'm getting a 750gb Samsunge Spinpoint F1 since they are supposed to be very quiet.

So here is my other question

Here is the Rosewell Enclosure

Would it better to keep the My Book in it's enclosure and build a new HDD + Enclosure

I was thinking either

So i would like to hear some opinions....

Just a Bunch of Drives *Disks

JBOD lumps all the space from both harddrives together so they'll appear as one volume inside 'My Computer'.

I think the rosewill is a fine choice.

Edit: Oddly the newegg description describes the opposite, so you will likely be able to set it as either.

Edit2: You might want to go with an enclosure with an eSata option. It will provide greatly improved performance over USB.
