Hard Drive/Enclosure Question

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?

Thanks!

Barry

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
