5 out of 5 eggs Mind at ease drobo 01/04/2014

This review is from: Drobo 5N 5-bay NAS Storage Array, Gigabit Ethernet

Pros: Simple to setup with easy to follow instructions.
Just insert 5 WD-2TB drives and let it do the work you want.
No hassle with a RAID configuration.
I did a lot of research on drobo, from both and other drobo internet review sources before making my purchase.
Not an eye sore to look at.
Easy to find and access drobo on my network.
Not an eye sore to look at and has satisfied my needs.

Cons: High Price.

ICY DOCK MB971SP-B DuoSwap 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

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.

Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

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.
