It’s hard to make a cool or interesting HDD enclosure, but I quite like this one from Orico.

NAS. It stands for network attached storage, and it means a hard drive in a box with a tiny low-power PC, connected to your home network. It’s possible to pick up a NAS box with its own hard drives built in, but it’s often cheaper to pick up the box and add your own drives separately – either using what you have spare or getting something new. That brings us to today’s review item – the Seagate 4TB NAS hard drive. Seagate brag that this is the only 4TB drive optimised for NAS use: loads of storage, minimal noise, vibration resistant and designed for 24×7 use. Ebuyer were kind enough to send a unit our way, so let’s get to testing!

It doesn’t need to be connected to a PC to operate as a duplicator, although it can serve as a massive 4 hard drive enclosure when connected to a PC via USB 3.0 or [...]
