Just check newegg out. They have most products you would need, and a great rating system that allows consumers to rate certain products. You can also read their comments.

Newegg.com - Rosewill RX35MV-U-BU SLV 3.5" IDE to USB 2.0 External Enclosure (Silver Aluminum & plastic) - External Enclosures
Newegg.com - Koutech IO-EEU223 Plastic 2.5" USB 2.0 Durable See-Through Clear external HDD case - External Enclosures

New egg is your friend.

I just saw some that have sata, and IDE

My question is, is there a limit to what it can read from the hard drive? Why does some say only 500GB hard drive max?

Guys. is it even worth it getting them separate? It just seems they will cost more if I bought separate.
