Need recommendation for a good high capacity HD enclosure

I expanded my NAS and now need an external enclosure to support a 4TB drive that I will use to backup the NAS. I've had good luck in the past with Vantec and Thermaltake enclosures - back when I was using drives less than 2TB. But it seems the reviews on the high capacity enclosures are not that positive. I checked the Egg, and Amazon, and can't find one that gives me a sense of confidence that it will work as reliably as my old jobs. Can anyone recommend a high cap enclosure (must be backward compatible to USB 2) that I'll be able to trust? If it goes to 8TB, all the better, but I'll stick with one that maxes out lower if it's more dependable.

Most enclosures should support 4TB
USB3.0 is backwards compatible to usb2.0

Just go on amazon and search for HDD ENCLOSURE and you will get hundreds of different results. Most of them will be fine.
