I just got a great deal on a Maxtor 3.5" 250GB 7200 RPM Ultra ATA/133 drive. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what drive enclosure I can get for it? It seems most of them are fanless, but that doesn't strike me as a terribly great idea. Thanks!

I bought a NexStar 2 yesterda

I bought a NexStar 2 yesterday for about $65. It has no fan, but the IBM 250 I put in it doesn't seem to get very warm.

The bigger complaint is that *ALL* the external enclosures I looked at yesterday require an external power brick.

Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it. Smile
