Hello!

I need forum recommendations on good reliable HDD enclosure which can support up to 4 TB hard drives (I think about $100 or so budget). Just lost flash drives and HDD because of bloody Roswill hub, so I decided stick to quality devices (not China). Also is there any possibility to restore flash drives?

What kind of connection are you looking to use? USB 2.0? USB 3.0? Firewire? Thunderbolt?

FWIW, I tend to buy my enclosure from OWC (www.macsales.com). They are a Mac oriented company, but their drives and enclosures will certainly work with Windows machines (I use a variety of them with my Windows desktop). I mainly ended up with them as I can get good Firewire enclosures from them.

Here is their model that would work with a 3.5" drive with USB 3.0, Firewire 800, and eSATA connections...costs $94:

Here is their model that would work with a 3.5" drive with USB 2.0 and Firewire 400...costs $45:

I have not used their model for 3.5" drives, but have several of their models for 2.5" drives.
