Drobo!!! I am a huge fan of storage. I attribute that mostly to the fact that I don’t delete ANYTHING. Who does? Our digital lives are just a collection of files and folders. The Drobo finally gives us an easy to use solution for home users. How often do you see statements like “Hot-expandability” and “16 TB” in a consumer product? By my count… never.
The folks at Data Robotics Inc. have recognized that users need the sameÂ flexibilityÂ and usability in a product as the huge corporations out there. They have also done a very good job at wrapping it all up into a very nice little package.
This new unit can be expanded to 16 TB and has Firewire 400 and 800 on board. It also has USB 2.0 for those of you who purchased the new MacBook. The price seems to be around $500.00 everywhere. Since it is Windows and Mac compatible the price may be the only dissuading factor.
