I have a 1 tb drive that i want to put into a usb 3.0 enclosure to use for backups. I don't need anything fancy. When I look on newegg, there are alot, but as I go through one after another has lousy reviews. It is hard to tell, since people are more likely to complain than they are to post a good review if they like the product.

I don't want to spend enough money. Just something good enough for backups and to use for a recovery if anything goes wrong. I use Acronis 2011 for my backups.

If it is a desktop you can mount your drive internally and use it as backup only drive.

Here is the general rule - External enclosure must be metal, where is steel or aluminum. It just for the heat withdraw from the HDD, so you can have a reliable storage.

USB2.0 is too slow... If you can look at this enclosure.

It is not cheap but I'm very happy with it.

For $15.00 more, the eSU3F8 is more cost, versatile effective...

Dual interface: USB3.0/eSATA versus Penta: USB2.0/USB3.0/FireWire400/800 and eSATA

Non Scratch SATA connector is the key for eSU3F8
