'[OT]: Was: HD Crash ... Now: HD Carrier recommenda'

    "> A reasonable scheme is to have several hard drives
       in those removable carriers."

This sounds like the winner for me (and maybe a number
of us) in terms of speed and cost.

Does anybody have any experience with these and
can recommend a manufacturer?

I've seen some with and without fans and other bells
and whistles ...

I use the ones I get at the local cheap joint for $20 each, complete.  No
fans, a ridiculous lock...  I seriously doubt mine would support something
like UDMA-100 but that's not a factor for me.  Anyway, they work fine going
on four years now.

Hi!, I would like to tell you, about these HD Carriers..

Most of them are made of Plastic, a poor heat conducer.

keep in mind that if your HD is on a regular housing, it can dissipate
heat on it, but if you use these enclosures, It may not dissipate all the
necessary heat and if your room temperature is high... oh oh... :-).

I tell you this because, I destroy a 10 Gb Western Digital HD due to
overheating
it where on one of these plastic HD carriers and the room temperature was
about 85 Deg. F. on a Tower PC housing.
I decide to attach a 4" Fan on the top of these carrier to avoid HD
overheating.

Sorry for the bad enlgish.

I hope this coment can be helpful for you and you didn't destroy any HD yet :-)

see you

I've used these for a while with good luck...

The only hangup I might have is that some of these new drives get plenty
hot.  I doubt a plastic carrier such as this will dissipate much heat.
Also, the integrated fan usually gets unplugged (noisy & useless!)--so not
much good to combat that.  Probably just the ticket for quick backups
though...
