    I love this enclosure, mostly because it's black, but man is it sexy!

    I don't really enjoy spending money, but there are a lot of things I have been doing lately that require these tools. The main reason why I bought this is because I have come across a few machines that are 110% dead lately, and it's the easiest way to recover data from HDD's without opening one of my rigs to slave it.

    I also picked up an enclosure yesterday for laptop hard drives, which is really sleek. I got this because Erica's laptop died and I need to get stuff off the HD.

    It's just out of need bro, out of need.

    I only paid about 30 bucks, plus S/H. But the extra cost is worth it for me since it's black, and does SATA/IDE which I really needed.
