Is there a storage capacity limit for external hard-drive enclosures?

I'm looking to purchase a 2TB SATA hard-drive, and I want to get an external e-sata enclosure for it. When looking for possible enclosures I have noticed maximum storage limits for them (eg 750G, 1.5TB etc).

"Not really, no, the specification were probably written at a time when 1 or 1.5 TB was the maximum available size for consumer hard drives, 2 TB HDDs only became mainstream very recently.

i recently replaced 2 original 500 GB drives with 2 TB drives in 2-year old Toshiba enclosures, no problem."
