24-7 HDD External Enclosure

I am looking for an enclsosure to run a HDD that will serve as a network drive on my linksys NAS (NSLU2) that will be running at all times. I have one now that is plastic, but I am concerned about its quality and the drives lifespan. I have an ADS USB enclosure now.

I was looking at some by AMS (Venus DS-2316B2Bk) and was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions for enclosures?

Also, do enclosures ever power down the HDD?


What did we do before we had computers?

  1. Maxtor Maxblast drives come in an enclosure...it's aluminum and disipates heat well. But since you already have a drive, maybe someone has another suggestion.
