5D vs 5Dt pricing
Shopping for a Drobo, and am a bit confused by the pricing. The 5D costs $593 on Amazon, and the 5Dt costs an additional $301. As far as I can grok, the t just comes with an msata SSD installed. 500 GB msatas only cost about $150. What's the extra $150 for? Am I missing something?

Thanks.

RE: 5D vs 5Dt pricing
hi i think it also includes a 3year care pack and some other screen monitor features and thunderbolt 2 too.
here is a page with some more info about it that might help:
http://www.drobo.com/storage-products/5dt/

(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)

Ah, that would seem to cover the difference. Thanks.
