    I am looking for an external enclosure for my 3.5" SATA drives that were inside my previous computer. There are three of them, and I would love if I could find an enclosure for all of them.

    I need to find one (3-in-1 or 3 separate) that matches the new iMac.

    Any suggestions?

    You UK-ers get all the good stuff! >.<

    Tried the same search on State-side Google and I get a bunch of PC-looking boxes.

    Edit: Looks like I am looking at $50-$100 for a single enclosure. I have 3 drives. Screw it! How else can I do this...?

    I don't honestly know, unless you wired them up yourself in a custom enclosure.

    Looks like the best bang for my buck is OWC's 2-bay enclosure seen here.

    Ends up being $130. Has all the interfaces I would need (FireWire Oxford chipset), and two bays. I have a 250GB external that I don't use that I could put my third HDD in.

    Ugh! $130. >.<
