  I don't have a recommendation on where to buy, per se, however I do 
have a recommendation that you make sure it is able to be powered 
completely from the USB ports on your computer.  Many new external USB 
2.5" drive/enclosure combos come with a USB cable with two heads to plug 
into two of your computer's USB ports, one for data and power, and the 
other for power only.
