    Sure it will, the GAX series are regular height 2.5" drives. I have an 8026GAX (unreliable piece of shit) inside the cheapest most generic Firewire enclosure I could find.

    It's not like chipset quality is an issue here, since laptop drives are tardy at best. If the vertical stand thing turns you on, go for that, otherwise, get the other one. An enclosure is a means to an end, nothing more.
  2. ok so both will fit?


    also will any old IDE enclosure fit the HDD?

    Any old 2.5" IDE enclosure, yes. Don't try putting it in a 3.5" or 5.25", the connectors are mechanically different.
  4. ok, that makes my life a bit simplier.
