We're networking a house with a central repository for music and films (we're shelving all the DVDs and bulk ripping them - not sure how yet) so need a lot of space - I have about 2000 CDs and 600 DVDs. Until about 2 hours ago I was going to get a Drobo http://www.drobo.com/ but have been told some bad things about it from someone who's owned one. On paper it seems brilliant, any size disks, spanned storage, upgradable; but I've been told it loses files, fails regularly and sounds like a Tractor. Any thoughts? I need a big storage centre that ISN'T a pc so that it can run 24/7 at 15W as opposed to the computer running at 150W.
