I have this blue-Ray Burner: "LG Super Multi Blue Internal SATA 16x Blu-ray Disc Rewriter OEM" https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E7B08MS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

This used to be inside my pc case (Fractal Design R6), but I recently updated my CPU cooler to the Kraken x72 and had to remove my optical drive cage since I mounted the cooler in the front. Now my poor Blue-Ray burner is just sitting on my desk so I wanted to buy an external enclosure for it. I found one on Amazon for $48.75 and was wondering if it was a good pick. Can someone inform me of all that it does and if it is worth the price. What exactly am I paying for here? I am not too familiar with this external enclosures and did not expect them to cost so much. I am used to them just chilling inside my pc lol.

5.25 external enclosure Amazon: "OWC Mercury Pro 5.25" Optical Drive External Enclosure" https://www.amazon.com/OWC-Mercury-Optical-External-Enclosure/dp/B06XRCCV44/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=5.25+external+enclosure&qid=1561430857&s=electronics&sr=1-4 $48.75
