Moving on from Drobo

So today is apparently the last day of my current DroboFS warranty, or yesterday was.  Apparently, the day it expires on is not the last day of warranty, but the day it’s no longer covered. So I was amazed to see that by pressing the ‘extend’ button gives an out of warranty price of $239 for a one year warranty. I would have extended it under the regular price, especially since this box has had two complete loss of data events, requiring a resync from another array (not a Drobo). But with the cost of $239, I think that money is much better served moving to a Synology NAS. I have a few friends with them and have heard nothing but good things.
