Which is the best way to store and access my digital DVD collection?

I *finally* backed up all of my DVD's (movies and tv shows) onto the hard-drive of my desktop computer, but I would like to put those files onto their own separate drive. I am trying to decide between a 1TB Western Digital Passport
($89) or a 1TB Western Digital 2.5" Internal Notebook HD
($96) and then getting a external hard-drive enclosure to put it in. I am leaning towards the WD Passport because of the price, USB 3.0 and because it's pretty darn small, but it seems like it is better used for intermittent back-ups, rather than a media server (but I could be totally wrong on that front). It won't be accessed all the time, only when I feel like watching something (say, a 2 hour movie or a few episodes of a show).
So Mefites, which hard-drive would be the best option for me? Is there another option that I am not thinking of? Thanks in advance for your help!
