I also have 2 of the USB 2.0 enclosures,.. I love 'em,... and I can't find any differences between the two you cited other than case design. I like the rounded ones a bit better.

Also, depending on your particular circumstances, this site, Vantec NST-310S3-BK NexStar CX Hard Drive Enclosure - 3.5 SATA to USB 3.0 at TigerDirect.com , has the same enclosure for $10 less,...

@ dobhar - no problem, also picking some up soon.

@ corelogik - yeah i can get that for $39 too, just the other site that has it for $39 only has prices and no info on their website but thanks for heads up

little more info..

both are stackable but i read that the the CX is a little more slippery than the other model and the NST-380S3 may give slightly cooler HDD temps
