What size mSata to use? - info@webpc.biz - 10-09-2014 10:26 AM

Anyone know if there is a sweet spot for the size of mSata drive to use in mini?

I have tried to ascertain this from Drobo support but they have just come back with the list of compatible drives and saying you can use any size.

What I want to know is if there is any benefit of using say a 1TB msata against a 512MB msata drive. Another way of asking is at what size does the improved performance level off.

I'm a little confused myself too. Based on other blogs, specifications and tutorial/review videos, it looks like the largest mSATA drive supported is only 64GB (!). Drobo Tech Support, please help us out here because that seems a little low, especially when working with digital media assets like raw video.

AFAIK there is no benefit of going with anything over 120GB
