I bought one for my external enclosure after I knocked my previous 320GB external off the desk, and I like it. It survives high- and low-temperature extremes hanging out most of the time in my car as well. (Not that I have a car PC, just for storing it, it's usually in my PC repair kit in my trunk)
But that's the best you guys can do? I'm hoping I can drop the price a few hundred without sacrificing too much... still taking advice...
