You know, it's just a case... Except if you want to bring your HDD with you in extreme conditions(Antarctic or Everest ), any enclosure will do...
The AMS Venus seems better though, as it has embedded cooling !

I use the Vantec all the time at work. Very good, I like them. The other enclosure probably isn't any better.

I recommend the Vantec. It has little rubber feet on one side so you can lay it down flat without scratching anything.

If you plan to travel with the ext. enclosure a lot, the 2.5" Vantec is powered by USB. You don't need the large power adapter. But of course you'd have to get a laptop hard drive = less space, more money and in some cases lower reliability. - Just a thought


Feel free to ask me anything about em, I know everything.
