    That sounds really cool.... but I hope it does not not sound like a truck or mortorcycle sitting your house.

    I own several "fanless" designs and they work great.

    I also hope you can upgrade the hard drive, if you ever need to. That is why I like buying the cases without the drives, so I'll know if I want to drop a 500 GB drive in it next year, I'll be able to do that.

    I've got 3 external drives now, 200GB, 250GB and 320GB. I'm pretty paranoid about backups so a lot of data which is stored is duplicated.

    I've got 2 Externals, but one isn't mine, it just stays at my house.

    I mainly use internals, don't know why, less cables running crazy.

    That picture looks like a render.

    Its actually made by Aria which is a bit of a shame as I was hoping to find it cheaper somewhere else as for a 320GB Drive its not the cheapest around
    however as far as looks go it is very nice so i dont mind paying the little extra

    Yeah I didnt think about the noise factor shouldnt be too bad tho can always spray a little WD40 on the fans to smooth em up make em a little less noisy

    Not sure on weather you can upgrade them offically but sure it'd be easy enough to just swap it over yourself hehe

    That green hard drive looks like a grasshopper

    My favorite external drive is from seagate but it's plain looking but with sturdy design.

    I'll always go for a Western Digital drive and stick that into a case. But then again, if I had a desktop, it'll definitely be internal drives. SATA > USB
