I have a number of IDE drives (between 250GB - 500GB) that I have out grown over the years. I was curious whether anyone is aware of a NAS (100/GB Int) device or similar chasis / enclosure (USB/Firewire) that accepts IDE drives and is affordable? I would prefer to have all three connections. I need something capable of supporting at least 3 drives and with a controller that supports RAID. I would also be interested in a similar device that supports SATA (If something exists that supports both that would be best). The SATA enclosure I would require higher drive capacity support (1TB per drive).

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Lynksys sells an enclosure for NAS. You supply the disks. It sells at Bestbuy, etc and is about $250.00. May be able to get it cheap at Circuit City since they are closing all of the stores now.

    Look for Netgear's products for NAS. Not sure what your affordable limit is, but they have different product categories.
