One more Drobo endorsement from Cali Lewis of Geek Brief TV and I swear I’d get a Drobo myself! I think it has been more than 2 months that Drobo is hitting every major media op. Saw it on both CES and Macworld Geek Brief coverages, oh, and yes, I saw people drooling to get Drobo discounts! Saw it on print spreads, drobo banners, medallions online. Ayayay!
What is Drobo anyway???
Drobo is the world FIRST storage robot. (now’s a good time to hear an orchestra shoot a loud “tadaaaah” in your head). 🙂
For $499, www.drobo.com says you’d:
1. keep your data safe. Automatically monitoring and repairing problems that could put your data at risk.
2. automatically control all aspects of storage management
3. have no configuration or management consoles. Drobo does all the work, handling any complex storage management.
4. have a better solution than external hard drives and beats RAID… hands down.
Now my personal “I haven’t seen it yet but I think when I do I’d” review is throwing the red danger sign at claims #1-#3. I mean REALLY NOW! If I believe this, does this mean what it says? Or not.
A hard disk manufacturer gets sued for claiming their drive has the Gigabytes of storage printed on the sticker when in fact it doesn’t. Will Drobo really perform?
I for one would LIKE Drobo to succeed. I’ve been in the days when I lost important PSD & PDF files only to find out that my 320GB (heck it’s really 290GB) seagate sata baracuda drive throws in the towel. I don’t know, maybe demoted planet pluto was perpendicular to the 3rd Jupiter moon while somebody was caught between the moon and New York City. I know it’s crazy… but it’s true. 🙂
Back to Drobo.
Cali Lewis is really putting her show’s weight on it soooo because she’s pretty, again I know it’s a crazy great must-have… but maybe Drobo is true.
Find out more about Drobo at www.drobo.com … and google Cali Lewis or Geek Brief TV. Funny girl, quick talker, but very very wise. I think.
I’d really love to review one, so if anyone can send me a Drobo… oh Cali… yoohooo!!!
