I want a 3.5" sata hard drive enclosure/caddy with the power supply but I can't seem to find many, especially not at a decent price. Is there anywhere can I get one for under 8 (including P&P)?

I have seen two sellers on ebay which have them around this price, but I don't want to buy it from them as I don't trust them.

If there isn't an enclosure, where can I buy a USB adapter with power supply for a 3.5" sata hard drive for less than 5 (including P&P)? Again, same problem with ebay. Or is there anything else I can get that's cheap?

Really don't want to spend loads as the drive wasn't cheap in the first place and I'm not 100% it'll work even with a new enclosure/cables.

UK sites/shops only please.

Thanks

Thanks. I'll keep it in mind if I don't manage to find it cheaper elsewhere. Not bad compared to some other sites I've found, but I really don't want to pay quite that much if I don't have to. When I know there's some for 8 or so 13 seems quite a lot. I've also just had to buy two 2.5" enclosures so the cost is adding up lol.
