My System Specs


Yeah, but both connectors on the ASUS I tried (already returned to staples) were active USB data ports as in they both connected the device to the PC. Can I just connect one of them to power?

I'm seriously considering this beasty here, and would have already ordered it if it wasn't for the silly price I'm going to have to pay to ship a 3.3lb item.......

Vantec NST-530S3-BK 5.25in SATA to USB 3.0 Optical Drive External Enclosure

edit: Pulled the trigger on one of these.... It damn well better boot off of a 2.0 port for installing the OS or I'll be PO'd. :)
