    Default Drobo S and Drobo Elite

    Time to spread poison for the coming Christmas.

    Drobo S

    DroboElite

    BTW, I am a Drobo user and owning this product since it was launched (even before Cathay Photo became the distributor in Singapore). I can say it is the best smart raid harddrive I have.

    I am eyeing the Drobo S.

    Like you, my programmer bought one of these also, even before CP become the agent. He paid including shipping was SGD400 cheaper than CP.

    Very good and I would say the best on the market.

    I do agreed. Mine was bought B&H. It is cheaper to get it from oversea with shipment & GST. It does save few hundred dollars. Moreover the exchange rate for US dollars is lower.

    I am keeping my current drobo, since it is running in my network. The new drobo S will be my external harddisk for my system storing my images. The reason is my 1 tera hhd containing all my 2 years images just crashed.

    Drobo S & Elite available in Cathay Photo.
    The pricing looks good.

    In the review, I only see NTFS and FAT32. http://www.d3dphotography.com/blog/i...obopro-review/

    I wonder if I can use it with HFS?

    nice machine but I am wondering, what if the enclosure breaks down instead of the HDDs?

    End of the World!!!

    Anyway similiar issue will also be happened on the other NAS or external hardisk.
    Is there any external harddisk or NAS that can read the original data in the harddisk without even reformatting just in case the machine spoilt.
