  1. Thunderbolt is …
    Thunderbolt is Intel, not just Apple, it is standard on most of the new Windows-based Ultrabooks, it is twice? as fast as USB3 with 10Gbps sustained bidirectional throughput, and supports devices other than drives including HDMI displays. If Drobo wants to keep up, they need to support it soon across their product line.

  2. Thunderbolt isn’t …
    Thunderbolt isn’t there because NOBODY CARES about that retarded Apple? shit. It’ll be dead in a couple years.

  3. Too bad Thunderbolt …
    Too bad Thunderbolt is useless gimmick which nobody with brains would ever waste their? money on.

  4. am i the only one …
    am i the only one who thinks? the blue usb 3 cables are just ugly?

  5. bummer…it? does …
    bummer…it? does not have the thunderbolt option. I will not be getting one until that option is available.

  6. he already has, its …
    he already has, its about 6 months old, near the middle of his vids.

    Think he? made two

    I watched this on? NCIX and on LinusTechTips 😀

  8. Research wins out …
    Research wins out every-time over looking at a box, if a box is all you need to tell you about the product then? you are going to often end up with some poorly made cheap products

  9. A retail box can …
    A retail box can tell a lot? about the manufacturers and Linus isn’t always unboxing just to show the features of the product.

  10. anyway the point is …
    anyway the point is, that your example is bad, windows wants disk space for I/O not because if it gets 95%+ full it will stop working and crash. i have owned 2 drobo’s they work fine as basic storage but they still have a ways to go. i build storage for a living, i have jabbed at the guys from drobo when ever i see them at a conf,? they have fun toys but it does not beat a real raid, raid 5 is crap, take some time and look into freeNAS, ZFS and raid 10 if you want real data backup.

  11. take a look into …
    take a look into the ZFS file system, it will do the same thing, the drobo is a software raid on top of a hardware raid, sorta like the way ZFS works over? iSCSi. the reason windows does not like being low on disk space is for the reason most people use “virtual memory” witch uses the disk as low speed ram, witch is stupid after xp sp2 it should have been removed. we have servers at work that run raid and there are times where the disk fills up, server goes the same speed.
