Neil, Cambridge Senior Software Engineer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The Drobo gives a massive amount of storage and USB 3 means that you can access it at a good speed. The user interface is easy to understand, and it mounts in Windows as just another drive. Easy.
Bad points:
The supplied USB 3 cable didn't work properly with the Drobo and I had to replace it, which took several days to diagnose and fix. Up to that point it would only work in USB 2 ports.
