Here is one option from startech. I've had a similar enclosure/adapter for several years and it has held up ok. If this one is the same, the door latching and drive seating mechanism is kind of weak. Be careful not to force it closed if something is out of alignment.


Best of luck with your search,

€135 jesus christ, in that case I might aswell just remove the case side panel whenever I need to wipe a HDD.

Yes, definitely cheaper to do that. Especially if you don't need to work with SAS drives. Back when I got mine IIRC it was on special from Newegg in the US and it was about $80. That was all I was willing to spend for the convenience and flexibility to use SAS drives.

stumbled over a pair of CSE-M14's the other day if these are useful?

Yeah, was afraid of that, no problem. It can collect more dust where it is;)
