What would the recommended enclosure for a 3TB HDD?
Anything being sold at CD-R would do. Just bring your Macbook and 3TB internal drive to the store for testing before buying.
I myself am gonna buy something like this https://www.lazada.com.ph/products/usb-20-sata-ide-converter-i402671-s533536.html
As I have 4 old PATA drives (200GB) I want to backup.
I've had good experience with Orico brands. They have a nice form factor too. Available at Gilmore and in Abacus in Virra Mall.
Thanks for the lead on the brand. http://www.orico.cc/goods.php?id=5939 is what I am looking for.
Just make sure the enclosure can do USB 3.0. Lazada has those Orico brands. If you go CDR King, yes, would be nice to try onsite. Some of their enclosures have double USB-A connectors to give enough power. But you can't do that on a Mac with the USB ports on opposite sites.
Thank you for the insights..
