Drobo 5D overview

  • 1Description

The Drobo 15TB (5x3TB) Drobo 5D Kit from B&H delivers an expandable solution for creative professions and small businesses in need of high performance backup storage.

If you haven't heard of the Drobo, you're probably not being as productive as you could be. The Drobo 5D is one of the easiest to use, simplest to maintain, and most effective enclosure bays in its field of data storage. The Drobo 5D offers room for the five included 3.5" SATA drives and one mSATA solid state drive (sold separately). It handles drives from any manufacturer, at any capacity, spindle speed, and cache. You can add drives on the go - hot-swapping drives is not a problem for the Drobo 5D.

But what puts this unit ahead in the storage game are the dual Thunderbolt ports. We've talked about Thunderbolt before - it's 25 x faster than USB 2.0 - and its data transfer rates almost approach warp speed, but more importantly, for disk arrays of this size, it reliably and safely transfers big-project data across multiple disks. Imagine having to put a crucial 200GB file on a USB 2.0 drive, as you're late for an important meeting and running out the door. You'll be delayed for ten minutes or more, trust us. The same crucial information on a Thunderbolt attached drive - 20 seconds.

Drobo 5D reviews

15TB (5x3TB) Drobo 5D Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk This company have the worse customer service i ever deal with. You will spend more than 1k in one hard drive that doesn't last one year and when something happen (for sure last than one year) you will realize that you got some junk in your hand with nothing to do it. The customer service will refuse to talk to you and will hang out as soon they realize that you don't have warranty .... So save your time and money buy a different product with a better customer service. You will thanks me for that .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only 2 weeks in, but LOVING it! Super Easy to set up, looks like a spaceship, and seems like it's built really well. So far I have nothing to complain about. And the marketing for the thing is GREAT!
