    Was so excited to get my new Mac Mini and Drobo for expansive media service - until the Drobo started losing movie files within one week of purchase. I hoped it was a fluke, but within two more days, another file is missing.

    Thus my search renews for an affordable, and hopefully nice looking, external hard drive solution. Taking any suggestions - preferably something on Amazon.com though b/c I have gift cards coming back off the Drobo.

    Thanks!

    how much storage space do you need? do you need redundancy? need fast transfter speed like fw800 or is usb2 fast enough?
