Hi, I would like to know if anyone knows if there are any USB or eSATA enclosures made to be silent.
Just like the internal HDD silent enclosures for but external.
I'm really surprised no one in the forum has asked for this.
Hope there's something or maybe someone can get the idea and make some gold!

Thanks.

I think for most people it isn't a really big issue. Usually these devices are only hooked up temporarily, and so their noise is not of too much concern.

Even if it was a concern, I think it would be hard to achieve. Even my cheap 'astone' generic brand enclosure has almost no vibration. However, it has seek noise, and a little bit of spin noise (but fades into the background). The seek noise is hard to get rid of, even in a top of the line silent case like the Zalman's, so I very much doubt you can do it in one of these enclosures.
