I have a Thermaltake enclosure and I have been very happy with it. Mine also is SATA but I know they make it in a IDE version as well. Heck I have one thats a no name cheapy from NewEgg that has been working for over 3 years that is IDE I almost completely forgot about. Both work with USB and the Thermaltake unit also is eSATA, which is how I use that one. They can get warm if you leave them on for long periods of time. I think the longest I leave mine on for is in the range of a couple hours, with no problems.
