I've been looking into NAS options, and have started to look seriously into purchasing a drobo and hooking the usb cord to my AEBS and I think it would do fantastic. Looks like a great piece of hardware. I'm a filmmaker and have a couple other drives, so my thought process is I use those drives A.) I have a smaller drive that is easily transportable.. and B.) use the bigger one for project that I am working on currently so that I have the FW 800 for a speedier scratch disk. Then I can use drobo for time machine, itunes storage, and archives of past video projects... does this sound like a sold set up??? What I really want to know is if drobo is due for an upgrade... I'm not totally sure how long it's been out (I think a year...) if so seems like it should get a revamp soon... even though i'm not sure what can be improved... anyway any word on if this little machine is going to get a makeover anytime soon??? Thanks!
