I use that one (except I have the USB 2.0 & Firewire model) and I love it. The only complaint is that the blue light in the front shines way too bright. I simply unplugged it and it has been working great. Bought it at Newegg as well.

Hope that helps.

Consider This . . .

The Bytecc 3.5" unit you linked to has a power brick, I hate power bricks. The damm things are big, ugly and unwieldly. Instead of a power cord, you get two cords, gag!!!

I use Bytecc 5.25" enclosures, they have an internal power supply, so only one standard PC power cord. The downside of this solution is you get a fan, often noisy. :(

Another advantage of the 5.25" is that you can insert a HD mobile rack. Put your Seagate 160G inside the mobile rack an slide in as many HDs as you want. One at a time, of course. :)
