Spec-wise it looks good. The fan is always a good idea, although some can get pretty noisy. My external enclosure has no fan, but I use it for backup only, so its only on for short periods of time.You wont know until you try it. No direct experience with the brand. Downside to any external enclosure is the vulnerability to damage from handling (i.e. dropping it).

Are these old 3.5" Drives IDE or Sata? Are you planning to connect them only via USB or do you plan to use the eSata connection as well?

The Drives will mostly be IDE but some are SATA and I have USB on my Laptop and eSATA on my desktop.

I was thinking along the lines that if you didn't need all the connection features you could save a few dollars, but the one you linked to should work well for you.

Thanks! What I really want was a USB and Fire Wire 400 IDE/SATA Enclosure.
