I had a Drobo with FW800 for a week.  The best thing about it was the case and that is about it!
So so slow!!

I replaced it with a HP Media Smart Server and it's way faster and it runs over gigabit.

Hopefully Drobo did better this time but unless this box has a proper processor in it, I doubt it.
That is the problem with most NAS boxes.

Build a WHS is the better way to go I think.

Well, to have a good 8 drive array, you'd better have a pretty good raid controller, and good ones can easily be $1000 or more.
