Kingwin Night Hawk SATA Enclosure Review

My friend The Accountant™ asked me to build him an external hard drive. He lives up in Northern Virginia and comes down here to visit his fiancee. At any rate, I’ve cut him a DVD or two of data when he visits, and we were looking for an easier way to move data back and […]
