SimpleTech STI-HD2.5/USB2 External Enclosure - OEM at Newegg.com.

This so far is the best external USB 2.0 Drive Enclosure that I’ve used.  Great design with a short USB cable that folds away.  Wish they had 2 other things: Way to get a longer USB cord and power switch.  CORRECTION: They give you a longer USB, I was thinking the built-in USB if it could extend a bit more would be nice.

But, this think looks cool, connects easily and I don’t have to drag around one of those long USB cables to connect it to my notebook or desktop.  And, for power it has a DC connection if you need it (5V/1amp) but fortunately my current Toshiba M3 has enough power on it’s USB bus I dont’ need it. My older crappy Dell C640 couldn’t handle it.

Comes with nice software called StorageSync that does backups.  Unfortunately won’t do a disk clone/copy so I can move from my 60G internal to a 100G drive by first connecting the 100G via USB — probably need Norton Ghost for that.
