For sale is a 2nd generation, 4-bay Drobo storage "robot". Fancy RAID but Drobo's own spin on the idea. Think of it as a RAID 5 that can auto expand. It uses USB 2.0 and FW800. I will apply the newest firmware it can take, which should open it to using four, 4TB drives if you feel the urge to slam those in there. One flaw: top drive "flap" (a dust cover, really) is missing. Does not affect device cosmetically. The unit still has its glossy black face plate, so it looks nice.
I am selling this Drobo with a companion unit called a DroboShare. The DS unit has two port types: USB and Ethernet. Yep. It takes Drobo and makes it a NAS server. Pretty awesome. Has a second USB port if you want to shove 2 Drobos up there.
No drives included. Add your own.
Both together for $275 Shipped $250 shipped
Trades: Really aiming for money, but, er.... got a Blazer, Typhoon or a Stroker?
