Wise Old Owl
Hi,I have salvaged a 500gb seagate baracuda hdd from my desktop made in 2012,which I guess have a sata? connector.I would like to use it as portable hdd .Could you suggest me some appropriate connectors?
Hmm thanks..the enclosure seemed a bit clean as less wires but now will buy tha adapterAll enclosures come with very cheap Power Adapters. I have tried three different sets. Adapters stop working with in one week or so and there is no way to repair these. I couldn't even find new adapter any where. I am using PSU for power now. I would suggest to buy something like this one.

Adapter will go kaput after a few times use. You can use your computer's PSU or buy new one just for HDD after that.
Hm so whatever I buy will only last for 2 months max?what would you suggest? I wish to use it until it fails.I can buy a good power adapter if needed.the adapter-kit has even worse power-supply. enclosure would still be better. if usage is going to be for a few months, the latter would be advisable. am using one from TAG. SVB seems to have newly launched the enclosure. i've had a controller from SVB earlier. felt quite sturdy & durable. the enclosure may be good too.
