    Anyone thats owned a portable external Hard drive knows that the first component to go out...is ALWAYS the enclosure-side cable receptacle. First it gets finicky, then you start needing the wriggle it, then you have to hold the connector to one side or the connection drops... and soon it doesn't work at all.

    I've had 20+ different enclosures, and I know of at least 3 that don't have an enclosure-side connector receptacle.... The EAGLE ET-CS2PESU2-BK (which has a cloth covered built in cable that wraps around the enclosure and tucks into a small hole), TheEAGLE ET-CS2BSU2-BK (which has a strap-like cable that snaps into a holster like a buckle when not in use... very good enclosure btw)... and the StarTech.com 2.5in
    which has a built in cable, but nothing special.. never used that one.


    Im looking for an external enclosure (preferably) with a Flip-Out USB port Like This, like a Sony Bloggie Camera.... that, or any other recommended enclosures with built in cables,....
