I'm debating whether i want to continue waiting on the DX9 or buy a Firewire External Case. I notice most cases are fanless and just use aluminum to disapate the heat. I have this type for my Windows PC but that HD does not stay on long just when I need to grab a file. I'd most like be running my Mini's External Drive all the time I'm using my Mini so Heat worries me. Any enclosures you guys recommend Fanless or otherwise, and has anyone hear anything about the DX9 ? I have a 400GB Seagate IDE drive I need to enclose.

I'm still waiting to find out more info about the M9. Hopefully it will be out soon. This thread has a cool looking enclosure if you can't wait.

I ended up ordering the Mercury Elite from OWC for $68 it's not that much that if I wanted to get the DX if they ever release it, I still could. I understand from what I read these are pretty decent. I notice it's got Auto Switching what exactly will that do for me?

I just got an ams venus external 1394/usb2 enclosure. it's really, really nice. has an internal 80mm fan (silent), oxford 911 chipset, and has a nice slide-in drive tray with direct plug connectors -- no cables to mess with (yay!).

Nice. I like the direct plug connectors. Is the fan really quiet? Between the drive and fan it has to be loud.

the fan is silent, and you can buy silent drives.

I plan on buying an M9 DX if they cost under $100. The only bad thing about them is that they're made outa plastic. Does anyone know what size drive will come in them or is it BYOHD?

From what I read on the site, it sounds like it will definitely be BYOHD. Smile

Now I'm told that Other World Computing will offer it soon. No info on configurations and pricing until an official announcement.
