You hate to trash all of your old gadgets, don’t you?
You have a shelf full of dusty Hard Disks, now useless because of the new 1 TB monster you already installled in your main PC, right?
Maybe Brando has a solution to sweep away the dust and transform your bare HDs to cool “new” gadgets.
The “Brando SATA HDD Dock Station Combo Stereo Speaker + Hub” is a dock for your spare S-ATA 2.5” and 3.5” hard disk drives, but can also be used as a USB hub and stereo speaker system, able to play your music.
