Those aluminum cases are cheap everywhere. But I would still opt for this one - it is more versitile and easier to handle.

Thelma - ask yourself whether you need an enclosure just for the drive you have now or do you plan to use it with many drives in the future? If you want something just for the drive you have now then the inexpensive Sabrent enclosure will work fine for you. If you think you will need to work with several different drives in the future then the Dock that whs recommended is what you want.
