    SATA External-Network Case Needed

    I have just got back a PC we had loaned out the other day and inside we had fitted a 750GB SATA drive. What I now need is an external hard drive enclosure with a GB LAN port\USB that is SATA compatable. They are, for the most part still IDE

    P.S. I have fitted the drive to my desktop PC to wipe it, but having over 1TB of storage on your desktop seems just plain wrong.

    I want NETWORK!!! I have just had 4 IcyBox cases arrive this week (the ones you have shown me). I need to use this drive on the network to make the best use of it.

    Oh, and the Icy Box only has an EXTERNAL SATA connector. It is still only IDE inside. They didn't word that very well on the item.

    You can get the Icy box with the internal SATA I have both types. I connect mine to the internal ports with a SATA extension back plate thingerydufermerry.

    Disk Station DS-106e maybe? Pricy, but nice specs and features.

    http://www.synology.com/enu/products...erise/spec.php

    Seen them for around £120-130 ex VAT.

    For the money that the Synology device costs I think I'll go with this D-Link one:
