Guys, I'm reading review after review for these Drobo V2's and I'm not being filled with confidence. One review can't say enough good about them, then the next says 'very unstable' etc etc. The Drobo, for me, seems perfect. It protects the data, it has expandability and has a great dashboard to keep an eye on everything with ease. And it's Firewire 800. Spot on. Unfortunately though, I'm finding it hard to justify the outlay for this. Ideally what I need is 2-3TB of storage for a varying array of tasks - VMWare, storage, Time Machine for multiple systems...and so on. Plus I need the peace of mind that the Drobo protection would give. I realise there are topics open for this already, some only opened in the past few days, but none have really hit the nail on the head with this. So, to conclude, can you give me an idea of whether is the ideal solution for what I need. I feel it is regardless of the reliability issues that various sources talk of. But I need to get a wider view before I put any £££ into this. My thanks in advance.
