It’s got room for 5 drives and has a USB 3.0 port and two Thunderbolt ports to allow daisy-chaining. And Drobo isn’t going to make you go hunting up the correct cables for your connection, either! The’ve packed in a generously long USB 3.0 cable, AND a Thunderbolt cable (which almost no one gives you), saving you about $50. Now we just have to load in some drives and get to protecting that data!
