    I need a decent drive enclosure and I need it in short order, so I would prefer to buy it from this brick and mortor store. They have a wide selection so it shouldn't be an issue...

    I'm looking for a SATA enclosure with a USB 2.0 and eSATA interface and I anticipate swapping drives out of this thing often, so a screwless design would be nice...

    Thank you...

    While I'm grateful for the input, are you sure those two links don't lead to the same product? The VANTEC NST-360SU-BL?
    Thank you...

    Um. One is a Vantec enclosure and the other is an Icy Dock enclosure.

    That's funny, I could have sworn that both links lead me to the Vantec page but I guess I've just been smoking too much crack.
    Thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately for me, I'm going to have to go with the Vantec since the Icy Dock doesn't appear to be available in my area.
    This was very helpful, thank you...

    Can't you order the Icy Dock from Newegg? Or are you one of them squinty-eyed foreign types?
