Speaking of prices - my first 60GB OCZ Vertex was $260 in 2008. My last 60GB Mushkin was $59.95 and even for the 128GB OCZ Vector I only paid $129,95. And all my 7 SSDs still work very well (knock on wood). And those were all sale prices at Newegg where I buy all my stuff.

This seems to be the best place for finding a solution for my situation.
I've received a 256gb SSD Samsung Pro 840 and i want to buy a usb 3.0 external enclosure for it.
Probably you ask yourself why in the hell put it inside a external enclosure? Simply because i have another SSD inside my laptop, and i want this one to be used as a multiboot os drive(1st partition) and recovery space(2nd partition).
So my question is: for using it as an it technician tool for installing OS's ( iso virtual mointing as cd/dvd) and debugging, what kind of enclosure it needs? Sata II vs Sata III?
Thanks
