From personal experience of using a drobo, their proprietary raid is horrible. Get a QNAP.

Totally happy with my Drobo. Seamlessly expanded from 5x4TB drives to 5x8TB, can't beat it!

The issue is not setting up the raid, its when it breaks itself and there is no recovery method. You dont even need a bad disk for it to break. Worked in an IT department where one department went 'rogue' and bought a drobo. Had to deal with that fairly often. Drobo is like the Beats by Dre of the NAS world.

Yeah we got 2 at my work. When the backplane goes out the only option is to buy an identical model or your SOL.
