Just a thought. If you get a very small case to pair with the drobo, there is no turning back. If you get a case that has room for at least a few internal drives, at least you can still have a server if the Drobo gives out or you get in the mood to put that raid card to use, you will not be stuck with a case or system you cannot do much with. Just a thought.
So nice of you to be looking out for me Mike! I like these two cases as well...but I am looking for smaller. Thanks for the links
As a side note...it could be come my next HTPC if the whole Drobo thing doesn't work out...
to go with the Drobo, consider this case: http://www.apextechu...cts.asp?pID=179
Apex is built much like a Shuttle case, which I use for my current HTPC. It could be an option. That size at about half the height would be better.
