External casing only for hard disks

Hello,

I am looking for an external casing (USB if possible) that can accomodate two or more hard disks. I want this for my personal use.

Ay idea where I can find something like this?

Thanks

Those are for RAID configurations, are you going to setup your PC as RAID? Does your MB have a RAID controller? If not you might want to look into it more and see if it's what you really want to do. I would think if you only want 2 more HD's you should just use 2 single enclosures with fans. But if your looking into using and setting up a RAID array, then you found what you were looking for. (I was only looking for NON-RAID configurations for you)

Is this what you need?

if you need to search google further for this, you need to search for "external enclosures"

I do not believe they are in exsistance,(I would think they would be)Ii've never seen any even mentioned before. I know you can get single ones cheap like Yan posted above. Here is another example of a single:

I wouldn't recommend a duel enclosure even if you found one unless it had a few fans in it. HDD's run pretty warm these days and it would be a much better idea to use a few single enclosures with fans.

I see... Well, I wanted to have something outside my PC that is also redundant. A friend of mine had a casing that takes two hardisks and a firewire connection, it also had its own controller... they cost $50, but I don't know where to find them. Have you ever heard of these?

Thanks.

2 disk in a redondant config for 50$.. that's pretty much impossible I think.. Else, the link I gave you about the external enclosure is the only thing you'll find that is cheap i think..
