"I love my Drobo Mini."5.0 starson by MBress
Pros: Easy to install and setup. Extremely fast. Looks great. WELL worth the price I paid!
Cons: None that I have encountered thus far.
Summary: I don't know what Dong is talking about, I just bought my Drobo Mini and have had a vastly different experience than what he's described in his review.
First, the Drobo Mini is incredibly easy to install and setup - it took me minutes from box to fully setup and running.
Secondly, the Drobo Mini is extremely fast and, unlike Dong, I've encountered little to no decrease in speed despite the large amount of data stored (volumes and volumes of large video files).
Lastly, Dong's complaints about the price are completely unwarranted. For the speed, ease and reliability of the Drobo Mini, the $633 price tag I paid was MORE than worth it. The VALUE that comes with the Drobo brand is unparalleled - plain and simple.
