    Metal enclosures are cancer, they make SO MUCH NOISE it's unreal. A plastic flash drive can be plugged in discreetly but these frickers screech/bang/thump so much...

          I see a blurry picture with a partial logo in the top right that may or may not be for the item being held. If you don't know how to post a picture in a manner that conveys information maybe you should go back.

    I've got a mildly old 2TB HDD I was going to install in a new build before putting the build on hiatus indefinitely. I eventually got an enclosure as the drive is no longer worth anything these days. I may as well make use of it. I got some cheapie Inatek thing, works well and has been reliable thus far since nearly a year ago.

    Hotswap caddy fits my needs, has two HDD slots which also fit SSDs and can clone a drive without a PC

    only hdd with proper esata enclosure and external power. usb enclosures are drive killers especially if they're a no-name chinkshit. i you really have to use one, make sure it supports UASP and SMART command passthrough. if it doesnt show up in smartctl, immediately stop using it.

        Burning out? Burning off? Burning on? Burning in? Burning up? Burning down?
        Pick your preference. It's not like English words mean anything, the language is all about "phrases".
        Some Chinese wagie probably looked up the meaning of a word in the dictionary and got "burning" as a translation to English, not being aware that English uses 2-3 words for what other languages express in one word.

      said. chinkshit enclosures typically have shit pcb that will short and kill your hdd.

      this was a huge problem since the mid 2000's and i think it still happens today. many chinkshit enclosure are really just "flash drive" controller emulators that treats your disk as a flash drive. if you use windows, check your device manager, if it simply says "USB Mass Storage" instead of the actual drive model name like "Western Digital/Seagate/etc" you probably got the chinky one.

          should be fine. although for 3.5"/2.5" hdd i would prefer esata since its closer to native sata without usb translation

    Enclosures only make sense for m.2. 2.5 sata ssd had their own enclosure. If you still use a external hhd for anything but a backup you are a moronic poorgay.

    I have them on hand just in case someone asks me to access data from said drive because it's more convenient than having to open up your PC.

    For 2.5" / 3.5", I have two Fractal Design cases from before I switched to benchtables, so I just use their drive bays.
    Don't have any M.2s other than the ones direct attached to mobo that I'd need enclosures for.
