Actually you can just use those few more k’s to buy a hard drive with a bigger capacity and stick it in an enclosure! Factory made doesn’t necessarily mean they’d be better.

The enclosures available here are often the cheapest possible Chinese quality, they break down fast - I have 4 which stopped working - best thing is to buy a branded one - both Seagate and Maxtor are available in multiple sizes, check the galaxy website.

2900 is the price of the 80Gb!

and 1000 for the enclosure..
