Killer Drobo Deals This Week

If you aren’t familiar with what a Drobo is, it’s basically a dummy-proof backup device.  You don’t have to know how to configure a RAID hard drive array to use a Drobo, but you data will be just as safe in the event of a drive failure.  It’s a great device that a lot of photographers use.

B&H Photo currently has some solid deals on Drobo units, which includes the first time I’ve noticed a Drobo go for less than $300.  The prices are good through this Saturday, May 15.
