Windows 7: 4 bay usb hdd enclosure recommendations (no raid)?

4 bay usb hdd enclosure recommendations (no raid)?

Looking at buying a 4 bay hdd enclosure (usb) to save space. Don't need raid or network connection, just a simple jbod enclosure. Been browsing through the various makes, and so far, am leaning towards the Icy Dock IcyCube.

Use is primarily for storage of redundant copies of my movies.

Any recommendations?

Sorry I can't help you with a model, but Icy Dock makes pretty good equipment. I have a 6 bay 2.5" Icy Dock rack in my computer now and it has done well for me.
