    Hello,

    Does anyone know of a source where these are available? Especially the
    one/s that will read Dell laptop hard drives. It pisses me off that the
    Geek Squad can manage to find them but I can't.

    Thanks in advance,

    CompUSA us to sell kits to take the bare drive and put it into an
    interface box with USB out put. About $30.
