I’m looking to get my data backed up without worrying about a hard drive failure destroying years of family pictures and videos, among other media. I keep reading reviews from different sites saying Drobo FS is the best thing since sliced bread, to the other end of the spectrum claiming it raped and kicked their dog.
I registered here so that I can get some feedback from current (or past) owners who can better tell me whether it’s a good decision to drop this much money into a Drobo FS. I like the idea of expanding my storage down the road. I’ve looked at Synology, but I feel somewhat limited to their max storage in their boxes that are within my budget.
My network will mostly Macs, PS3/Xbox. I’m not sure if that makes an impact on whether that keeps things simple or not in the setup and daily network interaction.
Let me know your experiences and whether this is a smart decision to get one. Thanks.
