I'd like to remove a 1 TB Western Digital Black Caviar HD from a computer and put it into an enclosure as an external drive. Can anyone recommend a specific enclosure product?

If you don't need to be so portable, I would recommend getting those HDD Dock. Bare drives are cheaper. Once you fill up the 1TB drive, just snap in another one.

I'm using this one Thermaltake BlacX eSATA USB Docking Station: Electronics
