If you have the room in your case and the capabilities on your motherboard, you can just put 3 2TB drives in there and RAID 5 them. This would be a little bit more expensive than that drobo is, WITHOUT the drives. You probably dont need the speedy drives. 4x1.5 TB drives may save you some money since they are about $100 these days.
