|Bottom line|| |
The second-generation Drobo adds a FireWire 800 connection, but the original USB-only on the now discounted Drobo might be the best bet for Windows users until better FireWire 800 drivers arrive. The device remains the most automated and easy-to-use redundant backup product we've seen.
The esoteric Drobo Mini seems to strive to be unique mostly for the sake of uniqueness, and offers very little, if at all, in terms of usability considering its crazily high cost.

Not only is the Asustor AS-604T an excellent NAS server for serious network storage needs, it's also very easy to use thanks to the extremely well-designed user interface.
