3.5" HDD Enclosure for Cheap

So I have 2 spare 500gb 7200 rpm Samsung HDD's laying around and was wondering if anyone here could recommend 2 cheapish (around the $20 mark for each) but good enclosures for them. Salvaged them from an old build of mine that I accidentally wrecked by bending the pins on the cpu when trying to replace the thermal compound on the cpu.

Not sure if you're willing to deal with the lights... but I just bought one of these for $20 (on BF sale for $17). They have an individual fan so if you're running something off that extra drive, it won't get too hot (and stays cool when you aren't using it). It's got a bright blue light and completely encases one single HDD snugly. GL!
