I'm in the market for a new external hdd case. I have a WD 320gb IDE drive, that I plan to use as a backup/portable drive.
In looking around for external cases, I see a lot of varying prices, for what looks like the same thing. Can anyone tell me what the must-have features are? What constitutes as a "quality" piece of hardware?
- It obviously must support large ( > 137gb) drives. - I know it must be aluminum to release heat. - I know it must have USB/Firewire for ease of use. - I want to be able to boot to the drive, but I think that's a BIOS limitation anyway.
What else do I look for to justify the price they advertise, vs. the $9.99 I see at other places?
