Travelstar 5k1500 1.5TB 9.5mm and Drobo Mini
Hey,

The big reason I was passing on the Drobo Mini was the device only accepted 1TB 9.5mm drives. Now I've come across a HGST 1.5TB 9.5mm hard drive and need to know if the firmware has been updated to support this drive.

I hope Drobo finally support the newer drives because I'm still using a first gen. Drobo and would love to finally get a new Drobo.

Thanks,
Gregory S.

I see no reason it wouldn't support it. The only drives it rejected until now were ones that physically wouldn't fit.

Drobo 5N | 250GB Samsung 850 EVO mSATA | 2 x 4TB Seagate, 3 x 4TB Hitachi | FS/EXT3 diskpack
Peak performance >100MBps read/write (based on FS disk pack, no jumbo frames, no SSD)
DroboPorts: Plex, Transmission, OpenSSH, NFS, nano, screen, bash

(cool to see another 1st gen user Smile

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
