Harddrive enclosures

I found this Newegg video explaining the differnet types of harddrive enclosures and their use. Since we recently had various discussions on this subject, I thought it might be a useful reference. Look for the video, not the device.

Newegg.com - Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Thanks for posting WHS. I have one of the enclosures demonstrated, and have had it for 9 months. I just reach around back and turn it on. The fan has never come on and I assumed it was broken, but didn't care. During the video I saw a fan switch on the back. I never knew it had one, so I tried it and the fan came on. So, I for one, did learn something from your post. Thanks. I know, you are not supposed to tell on yourself for being dumb, but when you are dumb, you don't know that.
