Sabrent External Hard Drive Lay-Flat Docking Station
What is this?
A docking station for internal hard drives.
Why did I buy it?
After purchasing the Drobo I had a minor issue where one of the drives appeared to die out of nowhere. I purchased and swapped in a new drive and all was right in the world, but I was left with an internal hard drive that I couldn't even attempt to troubleshoot.
This item allows you to connect either a 3.5" or 2.5" internal drive to your computer via USB. Once I connected the 'dead' drive, I was happy to discover that it worked just fine. I then did a secure erase on the disk and put it aside for future use.
