Drobo has been in touch to let us know that their 5D and Mini models are now available for pre-order. Read on for details.
Drobo announced new models that included Thunderbolt last month; Andrew brought that to you here. Today, they are announcing that these models are available for pre-order in the US. Here is what they said:
Hello from Drobo!
Today is a very big day for owners and fans of Drobo who have been waiting for new levels of performance, flexibility, and portability. Announced last month, the new Drobo 5D and Drobo Mini with Thunderbolt, USB 3.0, and SSD acceleration are now available for pre-orders from select partners and our very own online DroboStore.
The initial demand for these products has been about twice the level of any other product that we’ve ever introduced, so if you’re interested in getting one of the new Drobos – and we hope you are – make sure to place your pre-order to ensure your spot in line.
Pricing for the Drobo Mini starts at $649, the Drobo 5D starts at $849 – prices include a Thunderbolt cable and NEW 2-year standard warranty. An optional custom carrying case is available for the Mini at $49. Regional pricing for those of you outside the US is available from international partners and our online DroboStore.
We have more detailed information on the new Drobo 5D and Mini at www.drobo.com, and a list of the initial press and analyst reactions at www.drobo.com/news/news.php. Please reach out if you have any questions ([email protected], 408-276-8621).
Thanks again and best regards,
Check out the Drobo Store link for the 5D here and the Mini here. Drobo makes innovative products and I am personally a fan. If you are interested in the new products, hit up the pre-order links!
