Hello This is my first post on this forum and I want to say hello to all od you.
I’m looking for device that lets me connect WD 4TB RED to my laptop via USB 3.0. I found a lot of pockets , enclosures and adapters , but most supports drives for usb 2.0 and only the max capacity of 2TB .
My situation is as follows . I wish to create a home NAS server just for the media that on every laptop at home you could watch movies, music and pictures from a network drive . And above all, to watch 1080p and 3D blue-ray films via DLNA on TVs from NAS. I plan to buy in future WD MY CLOUD EX4 , and use for it 4x WD 4TB RED . However, it is a very expensive investment and I plans to build it partially . My old computer and USB drive are already totally clogged , so I need to buy very very fast an additional drive . My funds are limited , so first I would like to buy one drive WD RED , then the second, and for some time the NAS . The server will be switched on all day, I will turn off it at night and weekends . That’s why I choose WD RED . However, by the time I need to purchase a aparter or sth like it to connect WD RED 4TB to a laptop for the help of USB 3.0. How to do it ? Can you recommend a device which can do the job ? I’ve seen adapters from ICY BOX, NATEC and others, but I’m not sure of them. This solution temporarily, max for a few months, half a year, so looking for a cheap device.
Thank you for your help and expects a lot of advice and sorry for my english.
