External drive enclosure

Recommended Posts

Planning to move my backup drive from inside to outside my machine. Most etailers here stock Akasa and IcyBox. These okay? Are there other brands I should be looking at?

Thanks

Derek

Donno much about the Akasa ones.. :unsure:

But the ICY Box looks very similar to the Metal Gear Box which I've been using a lot. Just wonder if they are the same and/or a relabeled units. :blink:

Should be fine. It's the chipset inside that matters. Prolific is common in many units-- it's cheap but the USB side is pretty stable. For firewire I think Oxford is still preferred.
