Sabrent , i see they sell a boat load of external USB enclosures, reviews seem very mixed from being awesome to being total crap.

I have several 2.5 drives from over the years from fixing computers and such so i wanted to grab 2-3 2.5" external USB enclosures, USB2, or 3, these are older 320G and 500G drives.

I didn't want to spend a fortune cause if i could sell these for $30-$40 (but new is like $50 for a 500G) i could to some people as in CR things cost a fortune.

But with that i dont want to spend $40 for a USB3 enclosure...

if i can't sell em off will just use them as storage for my BR player perhaps and backup..

I have 2 Vantec enclosures, one sucks and just connects / disconnects constantly, while the other works fine.

Just seeing what my alternatives may be.
