    Akasa has a full range of external hard drive enclosures. The integral line-up includes every connection variant from LAN and USB 2.0 to eSATA. The Akasa integral eSATA combines USB 2.0 and eSATA. You can also use an IDE or SATA drive with the enclosure. This makes the integral eSATA a very versatile enclosure. We use every possible combination and take a look at the performance of both connection types. Its stackable, sleek looks combined with the good performance make this a perfect choice for users who plan to use multiple external enclosures.

    Aluminum or not, I had had to many drives die from overheating in enclosure to use any enclosure that doesn't have some kind of active cooling.

    Personally I prefer the AMS Venus line of enclosures due to the integrated 80mm cooling fan.

    Can I put a serial-ata hard drive inside this and connect it with my eSATA motherboard port?
