Sounds like it.
Personally, I'd think it would be better overall to buy a hard drive
without enclosure and put it into the enclosure of your choice, bought
separately. After all, when you buy an "external" hard drive, all
you're getting is a bundle of an ordinary, generic hard drive with some
middle manager's choice of enclosure.
Don't expect it to make a lot of sense. It's merchansing.
