Compatible mSATAs
I want to buy mSATAs for my two Drobo 5Ns' accelerator bays, but I'm having trouble locating drives listed in the support article. I know Sandforce-based drives aren't supported, but I'd hate to buy a drive that doesn't mention Sandforce and find out the hard way. Can someone please post a list of mSATA drives that definitely do work on Drobos? The more inexpensive the better. Smile

RE: Compatible mSATAs
Thanks, Dragon, for recommending the Plextor. I figured all cards of the same Plextor M5M series would be compatible, and I caught a great deal on a 256GB one on eBay. I installed it yesterday and it works like a charm, so I've promptly ordered a second one for our other Drobo.

RE: Compatible mSATAs
With the new 5N2 out, what high performing mSATA does Drobo recommend now? I'm really surprised they continued to use mSATA when it is a dying format.
