I'm looking at purchasing a Drobo 5D because my desk is becoming too cluttered with mismatched external drives. I don't know anything about this system, nor have I ever owned a Drobo.
Can someone tell me about the performance/speed of the new Drobo 5D thunderbolt system compared to other thunderbolt external HDs? Will the Drobo be just as fast as any other solution if I get the fast 7200 drives?
Also, I'm on a MAC. Will it be easy for me to setup Time Machine to back up the Drobo 5D onto other externals so I can keep a backup off site?
Any feedback is appreciated, especially regarding performance. I know it's expensive, but that's not my concern.
