Hi everyone. Im looking to buy this Christmas one of the Drobos (4 bay or 5 bay) or the OWC Qx2 (4 bay). Right now I think the OWC is the best one, from what I see and read on some reviews. The Drobo is made of plastic and that is bad for the drive heat. The Qx2 is made of aluminum, which helps dissipate the heat of the drives. One point for the OWC. Also, the OWC works with the new 3TB hard drives, while the Drobo doesnt (they say they are working on a firmware update which will come in the next months). Another point for the OWC. I like the idea of having 12TB in RAID 0 or RAID 5. The cool thing of the Drobo is that the Drobo S has 5 bays, so I could put 5 3TB drives inside and have 15TB! But I would have to wait for the firmware update, and it is very expensive, but I would be buying the drives slowly. Both have eSata, FW400/800, USB 2.0, etc. I will be using it with the Mac Mini 2010 and Plex. I have a LOT of movies and tv shows and stuff. I was thinking of the Drobo FS too, with NAS. But I dont know how long it would take to copy files over wifi to the Drobo. Is that the way to copy files with a NAS drive? Also, I dont like the idea of having the drives on all day. I also hear that the OWC Qx2 is quieter than the Drobos. So, what do you guys think? Any option would be used with 3TB drives to have maximum storage. Right now I own an OWC on-the-go SSD and Im very happy with it. Never tried Drobo, but everyone seems to have them. Thanks!
