    I have a spare 2TB WD Blue 3.5" hard drive and I'm looking to get a hard drive enclosure to reuse it as a storage drive but which one out of these two Orico enclosures is better?

    One is USB3.0 Type-B and the other one is USB3.1 Gen1 Type-C however both states the speed is 5Gbps so is it just the connector that is different?

    Yep that looks like the only difference - you might as well decide which socket you're standardising your stuff for & buy accordingly.
