    Just FYI for those looking for some serious external storage for their servers...

    Newegg has this combo for 349.99 - $50 rebate (total output will be 299.99):

    Drobo 2nd Gen w/ 2 Seagate 2TB drives
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.775752

    And you can add another Singe 2TB Seagate drive for only 99.99 at this link:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148681

    Now granted, after the Drobo builds the RAID, you will be left with only 4TB usable, but this is a HECK of a deal.

    So here's how it breaks down:

    Drobo Combo 349.99 - 50 (MIR) + 99.99 for additional HD + 12.XX for shipping. Total after MIR: 412.xx

    If you were like me and got in on the Google Offer earlier today for $40 of newegg stuff for only $20, this can make the whole deal (like it did for me) only 392.xx!

    That is ridiculously cheap for hard drive storage alone right now! Not including the Drobo!!

    Remember you can use websites like Fatwallet or ebates to get anywhere from 1-3% cash back. I'm not sure how it works since most stores listed on that website have a set percentage, but it's worth a try. It usually takes some time to get the money back, but is still worth it.

    FYI Newegg "fixed" their price on the hard drives. Now they are priced at 199.99 making this a lot less of a deal. I got in on it and hope others did too!
