Now that I am unbanned (come on... I was complimenting the n00b... seriously) and have some money to spend, I have some questions to ask. I'd like to have some redundant storage available. I've never been particularly good with backups, and I'm a real pack rat, so I figure I need a lot of storage with a full backup. I'm looking at a Drobo. To make it economically optimal would cost about $900 (Drobo @ $500 + 4x400GB HDs @ NewEgg). I'd end up with 1.1TB of available space, so that's about $.81/GB, hardly optimal, but fairly decent considering the features of the little guy. Of course, that's $900! I feel like I should just buy a used MDD or Quicksilver Power Mac and use the 2x400 IDE drives I already have. Does anyone have any opinions on the Drobo or any other inexpensive but quality drive enclosures/arrays? I'm hoping to spend about $500 absolute max, and as you can see, I'm a bit queasy about that.
