What are you planning on doing with your drive? If it isn't for a laptop and you aren't going to be switching it out between multiple machines, then you are just throwing away money. The external burners are just as good as the internal ones so the only issue is the cost. I would recommend getting an actual external burner instead of doing the enclosure and the internal drive. Some people have had problems getting those to work.
