Pros: Simple to setup with easy to follow instructions.
Just insert 5 WD-2TB drives and let it do the work you want.

I did a lot of research on drobo, from both drobo.com and other drobo internet review sources before making my purchase.
Not an eye sore to look at.

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB971SP-B DuoSwap 5.25" Hot-Swap Drive Caddy for 2.5" and 3.5" SATA HD/SSD
Pros: Mounted easy with no problems. Fits in one 5.25 bay. Connecting cables fairly simple. Sturdy overall housing.
Cons: Front door cover came off with the first 3.5 drive that was inserted. Had Trouble with Windows 8 Operating System recognizing drives (my level of knowledge). Like the name says, for SATA HD/SSD dives only. Gave it 4 eggs because it is what it is.
Other Thoughts: I bought the drive caddy, thinking it would be like popping in a old 8-track tape and transfer data from my old drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have had a preference for Western Digital Drives above others I have had.
These drives are sleek looking, cool running, and quiet compared to previous 7200 rpm hard drives.
This is my forth build. I am currently running the 4 drives in RAID 10 and really pleased with the performance.
I am happy.
Cons: Really none.
Maybe a higher price than I am used to for a drive, but you get what you pay for.
