New Drobo Package Makes Me Want One Even More

I did a story on Drobo when it first came out and I'm excited to see that the price is gradually dropping, bit by bit, and they are now offering a REALLY great deal. Of course I still don't make enough money [blogging] to pick one up, but if you have the cash, now's the time (in my opinion).

This new offer drops the price of the stand-alone Drobo by 50 bucks and has two different drive bundles as well. The bundles are either 2 TB ($749) or 4 TB ($1075) worth of Western Digital GreenPower SATA drives, each including a Drobo unit. The savings are $284 and $528 respectively. If you have a lot of data lying around, especially video, and you need to back it up, there aren't many options that are better than a Drobo. Sure, you could set up a RAID array, but if you don't want to think about your backup except when you need it, Drobo can do it all for you.

I know this sounds like an ad or something, but check out the website yourself and draw your own conclusions.
