I use an Orico enclosure like that for infrequent use and it is fine. I have had many of them that are similar and typically what happens is when you try to use them 'full time' the controller (or board aspect inside) just quits responding. They are not good about heat and in particular have to be careful with them if you opt to use them with a HDD.

I put one of these on an X Box for game storage of the very infrequently played games and it worked exceptionally well for that. I also have one hooked up now for Windows backup purposes and it seems to be fine for that as well.
