            I bought this to speed up my Drobo. It's actually bigger than I needed. It does seem to help with performance.

                Comments about Crucial 120GB M500 mSATA Internal SSD:

                It is, of course, difficult to tell just how much acceleration this thing gives my Drobo 5D, but I do know it's working. The other thing to know is that you don't need a larger one than this one for your Drobo.

                  I put one of these into my Drobo 5D. It is difficult to tell just how much it speeds things up, but I do know that this Drobo is fast indeed.
