This review is from: Drobo Mini 4-bay Portable Storage Array, Thunderbolt/USB3.0
Pros: Very high availability and redundancy. Bad drive? No problem just pull one out and slap another one and you're done. You don't even need to press enter.
Not enough storage capacity? OK, just put another dive in and walk away. Ya, you're done now.
Cons: It's ext and not NTFS. NTFS is better and when using in conjunction with a Windows domain, certain security enhancements need to be disabled in order to provide functionality with the Drobo. :-(
Other Thoughts: The people complaining that this is just an external hard drive must be unaware that an external hard drive doesn't come with a remote-accessible, already deployed, pre-configured, secure Operating System with a built in RAID card, pre-configured RAID, and hot-swappable drive bays.
The drobo is a hot-swappable file server in a tiny box with the least amount of administration required for any storage product I have ever seen.
