So, I basically have these two bare HDD's just sitting here collecting dust. I have an old Vantech Dual Bay Docking Station, but it broke a while ago, either the power supply is failing or the device itself just stopped working. Honestly, I'm not too sure, it barely worked most of the time anyone and hated my 3.5" drive. So now I'm in the market for a new solution, since I'm wasting this valuable HDD space.
The two drives are as follows: 1 Seagate 80gb 2.5" Sata/Satall /&/ 1 Samsung 1000(1TB) 3.5" Sata/Satall
To my knowledge they are both SATA drives, I can provide pictures to get a confirmation on that if someone can assist me in uploading images to this sites forum. I do not know how, nor do I want to break any rules by posting an image of the drives.
Anyway. for the most part my main requirement is being able to attach these drives to my home network full time and use them from my main laptop in my room, or from any computer on the network. I have a wireless N network, with an available USB port, or ethernet port, on my Wireless N600 Netgear WNDR3700 router. But I'd also like USB 3.0 or SATA ports for faster transfer speeds when I am transferring a large amount. I appreciate any advice anyone can give, when searching through different products that suit my needs, I am overwhelmed with the choices. Any clarification or specific product suggestions would be very much appreciated.
This is my second post, in a different sub forum. I am hoping it gets more attention here, I really need some fast help here as I need these drives quickly, running out of space. :D haha thanks in advance!
