Best Single Hard Drive Enclosure?  January 31, 2016 – 05:27 am

Best Single Hard Drive Enclosure?A great way to get some life out of a hard drive from a previous build, or your old drive once you've upgraded to an SSD or a new computer is to grab a drive enclosure, mount the drive into it, and connect it to your computer via USB, Firewire, or eSATA. This week, we want to know which drive enclosures you think are the ones worth buying to repurpose those old drives.

Maybe there's a specific enclosure that you love, or a dock that you use all the time and keep multiple drives inside it. Whatever your preference is, we want to hear it. Leave your vote in the discussions below!

Hive Five nominations take place in the discussions, where you post your favorite tool for the job. We get hundreds of nominations, so to make your nomination clear, please include it at the top of your comment like so: VOTE: BEST HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE. Please don't include your vote in a reply to another person. Nominations emailed to us will not be counted. Instead, make your vote and reply separate discussions. After you've made your nomination, let us know what makes it stand out from the competition.

About the Hive Five: The Hive Five feature series asks readers to answer the most frequently asked question we get: "Which tool is the best?" Once a week we'll put out a call for contenders looking for the best solution to a certain problem, then YOU tell us your favorite tools to get the job done. Every weekend, we'll report back with the top five recommendations and give you a chance to vote on which is best. For an example, check out last week's five best desktop computer cases.
