    Anyone know of a place selling well priced 3.5" external housings for HDDs?

    I need two.

    I have not seen those around.

    Are you looking for an IDE compatible casing, not the HDD?

    EDIT: Maybe this is what you need?

    Well priced as in cheap? These seem too cheap to be true R126

    Or well priced as in good quality for a good price?

    Haha, R250-ish I think is a fair price. And I agree R126 seems a bit too cheap

    You're not! The OCZ prices have come down recently but it's still R200 cheaper than I could find it anywhere else retail!

    Anything on 1TB or 2TB external 2.5" or 3.5" external drives?
    Seen on a Sammy 2TB 3.5" on wootware for just under R1.3k - a good price I reckon.

    Not really, also bought a R25 adapter when I ordered from takealot. Wootware probably also stock this.
    I've also read some guys solve this with some double-sided tape

    Hmm not sure I would attempt that. R25 bracket won't break the bank

    I just went without a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket for my 30GB OCZ SSD and simply screwed it to the case on 1 side. It works perfectly well, because SSD's are light and they don't vibrate either.
