    Quickly after buying my Acer aspire timeline i changed the crappy hard drive that it comes with (hitachi 5400rpm) with a wd black scorpio 7200rpm 16 cache, then bought a very sleek external enclosure and installed the drive. Now i use as a portable drive which is faster that the wd passport portable drive i have too, even i use it to install windows 7 instead of a thumb drive.

    do all these enclosures need an external adapter (power supply) to work?

    Mine does, but I did a few searches and the answer is no, there are some that don’t (at least from their description). Here is 1 that supposed to not have one

    Portables and enclosure for 2.5″ takes power directly from USB like this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=WishList.jsp&A=details&Q=&sku=494696&is=REG#reviews

    the big enclosures for desktop drives use external power
