Should I get a Drobo or a regular external hard drive? (Part 2)

Episode 892 (1:43:20)

Kevin from Trinidad
LaCie 2big Thunderbolt Series

Drobo is different from a typical external hard drive because it combines multiple hard disks into a single giant USB, FireWire or eSATA drive. These are more complex and more expensive, however. Leo thinks most people would be fine with a simple external hard drive, especially since they are available in the 1, 2, or even 3TB range.

The LaCie 2big 6TB Thunderbolt Series Hard Drive that a caller brought up last hour is pretty impressive if he needs a lot of storage.
