I was thinking about buying 3 of these plus a Drobo 1st gen…
3 drives shipped: $215 ($0.095 per GB is temping…)
1st Gen Drobo: $340
$555 for 2.25TB of Dynamically RAID protected storage is not bad.
However, the only reason I will not pull the trigger is the lackluster warrenty.
“180 Day Seagate Limited Warranty”
I don’t care how you sugar coat it, 180 days does not create the perception that Segate is standing behind this product. Their external drives carry a 1 yr warrenty and their internal have 5. This product should have a 1 yr warrenty, lest you be SOL in 7 months. Add in the $8 SquareTarde warrenty? w/e . For $100 you can have this drive new with a 5yr warrenty.
