planet5D giveaway Drobo winners!

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

We've now given away 3 Drobos on planet5D! Again our thanks to the folks over at Drobo who have helped us – you really should think about how a Drobo might help you with your data management issues.


The July winner was never announced because the selected winner never responded to any of our attempts to notify them – so we've selected a new winner and that was Jim Ackerman.

We picked the August winner live on the planet5D live page after our conversation with Koo from NoFilmSchool last week – and that was Greg V.

The other winner of our week long Drobo giveaway was J. Mark Strong who also sent us a photo!

What is a Drobo?

I've had a drobo 4-bay (the USB2 model) for about 3 years now and I really enjoy it. I've been able to add additional drives to it and removed one when I needed additional capacity. I am hoping the new 4-bay units are a bit quieter tho – the one I have can be a bit loud in the summer when my office is warm.
thanks and good luck!
