  1. What is a 3.5" enclosure that is supposed to be a very good one. I want to make another external hdd for my friend because he is going to store and transfer videos for football films to watch and move around from computer to computer. I have used 2.5 enclosures and found Vantec to be good. What is your opinion on this subject? Thanks.

    Vantec makes good Enclosures I have two of their 2.5 ones. Bytecc makes good 3.5 enclosures with a built in fan for cooilng ( dont get an enclosure that does not have a fan)and are reasonably priced. Newegg carries bytecc enclosures.
