External hard disk cases

Can anyone recommend any particular external hard disk cases?

I am considering a Vantec Nexstar 3.5" portable hdd enclosure with usb2 and firewire,aluminum covers.

Is it worth paying extra for a firewire connection?

I have a Belkin USB 2.00 which I am very pleased with and was extremely easy to fit. You can use it for external hard drive, or cd/dvd drive.

Can Belkin be bought online?

Seems a bit expensive for USB only? Compared to this: click here

I think it's USB and firewire....... but I'm sure there are cheaper options. Post back with details of what you go for eventually.

I read Belkin was noisy? Plastic case?

I am using an I-Buddy, works fine.

Where can I find an i-Buddie USB 2 HDD Housing?

Are they quiet to run?
