Pros: Quick. Good performance. No compatibility issues.
Cons: Drive died. Would not even be seen by a BIOS. Tried on many computers, controllers, and cables. Sudden and complete failure. It has now been over a month since the drive failed and I have still be unable to get a replacement from Corsair! (They received my drive weeks ago and are still validating that it is failed...)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Drobo BeyondRAID 4 Bay Diskless Storage Array Enclosure - DR04DD10
Pros: Flexibility of storage options
Cons: Slow, horrible compatibility with FW cards, abismal random access performance (with 4 7200 rpm drives, I was seeing 75IOPs at 50-100ms latency).
Support sucks and is unknowledgable and unwilling to assist.
Other Thoughts: I wish I would have never bought this product.
The flexibilty is nice, but not for the overhead imposed. Buy an eSATA external enclosure and a RAID card.
