How do you shop for and buy significant items? For technical people, there is inevitably a strong research component. Wikipedia defines a review as “an evaluation of a piece of hardware like a car, home appliance, or computer.” My bet is that if you’re reading this, you’re the type of person who reads detailed independent reviews before buying any of these things.

Hi everyone, and welcome to the new Drobo blog. We’ve got quite a few exciting and new things to share in 2012 and we hope you’ll find this space very informative and interactive. I’m very much looking forward to taking our conversations to yet another level. Thanks in advance for your participation.
