Default external enclosure q: to fan or not to fan

looking at two enclosures for a DVD-R drive, one with fan another without.

or

to fan or not to fan, that is the question.

TIA

You dont really need a fan with a DVD drive. It would be just fine to get one without a fan. Plus with a fan, you get more noise. My vote is for the Quick-serv

true, it's only a few bucks more but the design of the fanless one matches my HD enclosure (also fanless). unless someone can come up with a good reason to go for the fan, i'll have to stick to the aluminum one. thanks
