    Does anyone own a Vantec NexStar 3 NST-260?

    I would just like some opinions on it and if you have had any problems with it.


    For those of you wondering what the NST-260 is, it is a 2.5" external hard drive enclosure.

    I have found 4 decent reviews of it:

    I have used different Nexstar enclosures at work, both 2.5 adn 3.5", at work and they work very well.

    And it's a small risk, given how cheap 2.5" enclosures are. :)

    I found it in BLACK for $28 and in BLUE/RED for $27.

    For a hard drive I am looking at a Western Digital Scorpio WD400VE (40GB).

    I have had no problems with Western Digital. I have a Seagate drive, but I don't like the noises it makes.
