WD My Book Studio External Hard Drive Now With USB 3.0 Connectivity for Mac Users

Would love to upgrade to 4TB drives. Problem is that most aren't even internal anymore! They seem to reserve the biggest drives for external enclosures. Must be higher margins or something.
With 4TB drives, there's the Hitachi and now a Seagate and WD too but, excepting the Hitachi somewhat (who I don't trust as much), they're so expensive. Hitachi is £188 or £47 per TB whereas a 3TB drive can be had for £103.50 (Seagate) which is £34.50 per TB so I'll just stick with 3TB for now.
Would be good to get hard drive enclosure reviews. I have an IcyBox 3.5" enclosure with SATA and USB connectors that can slide into a 5.25" dock in my desktop. This then gives it a SATA connection straight to the motherboard. If I pull it out, it's immediately portable, albeit with an external power supply. Brilliant - if my house is on fire, I can just yank and take all my personal data. So surprised no-one else makes/sells these any more but I'd pay good money for a decent enclosure that had this feature.
