  • Pros: Nice Packaging
  • Cons: Customer support, Difficult To Use, False Advertizing, Unreliable

Best Near Line storage

Video Kevin, B&H Photo
29 January 2015
  • Excerpt: We have had a Drobo Pro for over 6 years as a near line storage solution. While it does not have high speed transfer capabilities, it's design of a dynamic storage environment allowing easy expansion is phenomenal. As drive sizes increase you can just add single drives to increase capacity.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
  • Cons: Slow

  • Summary: Our law firm purchased two of these and we have one in each of our two geographically separated offices. We are using Drobo Sync to synchronize the two devices. It was very simple to set up and manage.

  • Summary: For home use it's ok. Don't EVER EVERY think about using ANY Drobo device for a company you work for. These guys have no clue how Enterprise storage should be!!

If this was faster, it would be a five star product

Michael Hoffmeister, Amazon
7 January 2015
  • Summary: It was easy enough to set up and get going. I loaded 8 4TB NAS drives. It seems to be reliable but SLOW. You could use it for most applications but for disk intensive things like backup or video editing, it isn't cutting it. They supply a software dashboard but aside from setup, it doesn't do much.
