I'm surprized at the price for a USB3 external enclosure

do USB3 external enclosures ever go on sale, if yes how much would I have to give for a decent enclosure?
Thanks STB

I get mine for free when I buy external hard drives and harvest the drives from the enclosure.

6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!

You don't really see individual sales on these items but Newegg often has blanket 10-20% off coupon codes for the entire category. I remember getting some 3.5" Orico docks for $20-25 and 2.5" enclosures for less than $20 a pop after coupon.

I bought Orico USB3 enclosure for about $10 from eBay. Not cheap enough for you?

I did search ebay before I purchased the USB2 enclosure

I searched 3.5" external enclosure did'nt include the Orico must have over looked it.
Dam even though the Orico is plastic for $4. more I could've had a USB3.

I think I'll like the quaility of the Roswell I purchased

plus I still have'nt picked out a USB3 card yet, still haven't decided on # of ports Brand name ect. any suggestions on the USB3 card?

this ebay link has the Orico enclosure laying on it's side the Roswell has a stand designed to be vertical is it more or less desirable to have a vertical enclosure?
Thanks STB

pixelation I bet you'r $10. enclosure was a 2.5" I did see inexpensive 2.5" on e bay. however I allready have a 2.5" WD my passport.
