Review Date: 03/15/11
Cons: None found so far

Pros: Easy setup, all computers can access whether XP or Win 7 - 64bit, spins down when not in use, peace of mind. Handles 4+gb video files no problem.
No more being plagued with losing data, photos and video which gets worse the bigger the drives. I have 5 - 2gb WD Blacks in mine running on a network with 3 Windows XP and 2 Win 7 64bit computers. I have it set up with one drive redundancy. I use TVersity Media Server and stream Drobo video and photos to PS3 no probs. I backup all of my computers to it now. My rebate cheque arrived in about 2 months.
