HD Enclosure recommendations

I'm going to put my old hd into an enclosure and was thinking of the OWC one but it is plastic and some people give it bad reviews.

I'm looking for some reccomendations for a slim enclosure like the OWC...preferably aluminum.

Let me know what you've used and liked.

If you're referring to the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro, I've used one for almost 5 years and it's been excellent for travel. Very compact and reliable.

There are other options, such as the Bus-Powered Portable OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro mini
