(Very good enclosure)

And the drive of your choice, it has to be sata to use the eSATA.

I prefer Western Digital Hard Drives, personally. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136073

I prefer this method because in my experience, external drives are laden with useless (and expensive) features that require Windows. The Mad Dog enclosure I linked to can use PATA and SATA drives and has USB 2.0 and eSATA. And it works with any computer with eSATA or USB 2.0 ports.
