    Was wondering when this would have its own thread..
    Too bad I already own one..
    Its an extremely quiet drive.. at least to my ears.

    I'd like to purchase 3 or 4 of these and install them in an extrernal HDD enclosure. Does anyone have any recommendations? I've never installed this type of set up so any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Ah, but what a dream.

    Front page link had me excited, then I see it's IDE...I have an empty supermicro 5-to-3 module I keep thinking about refilling for some network storage, but it's SATA.

    IDE is not a good option for multi-drive external boxes, that's really SCSI realm.

    Although SATA (esp SATA2) is catching up pretty fast, at my work we currently sell storage systems using SATA RAID with up to 4 TB or storage...

    The systems are pretty stable and fast, but for the most part the drives you can currently get for SATA aren't meant for high capacity RAID storage (we use special drives the HD manufacturers qualify for this role), SATA 2 should start to change that...
