I'm looking around for a dual 2.5" hard drive enclosure for two spare 7200 RPM 320GB drives. I've seen a couple models here and there, but would like to hear suggestions or personal experiences with one. Firewire 800 is the preferred connection and it has to be rugged too.

Though I've bought 3.5" enclosures I've had good luck with both of my drives from OWC http://www.macsales.com/ I just buy the bare enclosures and add my own HDs. I also have one enclosure from Macally.com but IMHO they are falling behind on their enclosures.

I have a barebones Guardian Maximus mini from Newertech with two 500GB drives. The enclosure is a little on the larger side, but it feels really solid and comes with a nice selection of ports (USB, Firewire and eSATA). It also does automatic backups with RAID if you're interested. It's just a really nice drive. Probably not the cheapest one out there though.

It looks like a good product. Nice.
