ya 3.5 inch is cheaper than the 2.5 inch but the capacity of 3.5 is quite large when compared to the 2.5 inch one....and the 3.5 inch is also heavier than the 2.5 inch one.

Just make sure that you buy Sata2 hdd and Sata2 Usb casing.

Get a Transcend Usb2 Storejet 3.5. It supports upto 750gb hdd and will cost you approx 1700.

as i understand from above discussion, the 3.5 will need extra power supply, isnt it? i need one without power adaptor

will the 2.5" ones (both HDD and Transcend casing) will have sata2 ? i have Dell Inspiron 5100
