I thought about the Drobo as well, although I have read some mixed reviews about the performance (even with the new FW Drobos). Also it's quite expensive - $500 with no drives.

I would like to use my internal drives for the fastest performance and use external storage (like the Drobo) for backup. So I could do two 1TB internal drives in a RAID 1 configuration, and then backup to the Drobo using SD so I have extra protection. Since I will have four extra drives totalling 1.8TB of storage once I install the 1TB drives in my MacPro, it may make sense to get the Drobo and do it this way.

Of course, I also want to get yet another external 1TB drive to store my photos off-site somewhere in case I have a fire or burglary or something!
