Hi there. I need a DAS with at least 4 slots. I intend to connect it to my iMac and use it for backups and media storage, and then access those contents via Internet with something like OwnCloud. Please consider that since my iMac is from 2009, I need the DAS to have FireWire 800 (USB 2.0 is not an alternative since it's slow as ****). Some options that I've found so far are the Drobo Mini and others made by LaCie. I kind of liked the Drobo mini. The good thing is that I don't have to deal with complex RAID setups and it's very silent and compact (a highly desired feature), but the problem is that it works with 2.5" disks (right now limited to 2 TB, expensive and kind of difficult to find) and that supports only USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt. On the other hand, I'm not willing to expend thousands of dollars on a LaCie case. So right now I'm open to your suggestions.
