Things to watch out for

Vantec NexStar 3 3.5" SATA to USB 2.0 & eSATA External Hard Drive Enclosure (Onyx Black) - Model NST-360SU-BK

Pros: Slim case design, full eSATA support, decent price for an external SATA case.

Cons: Supplied external back plate only has one external SATA connector.

Overall Review: This is a great case, but after reading many of the reviews there are a few things you should know. 1) The drive assembly fits in a tongue-and-groove support in the center of the case. You need to be careful and get it into the groove so that the drive will be secure. If your drive rattles you most likely didn't get it aligned correctly or missed the groove. It will fit very snug in the groove when aligned correctly. 2) The internal drive LED cable is easy to break. It runs along the outer sleeve. Be careful not to get it underneath the case screw because when you assemble the case, the screw can cut the lead in two. You may want to tape it up to keep it out of the way when assembling the case.
