An acceptable USB enclosure for a 2TB SATA Drive

"I just got me this 2TB SATA drive.
However, I can't seem to find an acceptable USB enclosure for it. As I browse newegg or amazon, most of the enclosures state a maximum size drive (e.g. 1tb or 750gb) or don't state the max at all."

"Ignore Max - as long as it is SATA/Sata2 compatible, you shouldn't have a problem. If you want, email the seller first to make sure.

Personally, I would just get the smallest enclosure you can find... but, if it is going to be left on 24x7, you may want to look for one with a fan included.

The only time to be careful of Max is when buying NAS units, but even most of them will support more."
