This is the one I have and am now using for my network storage while the WHS 2011 is in repair. Nice bit of storage.

I'm torn between this and the Synology DS411. At the moment, they're roughly the same price but the DS411 has USB/eSATA connections and a "on/off scheduler".

If you are looking at those same features from a Drobo, go with the Drobo S. eSata and USB3. I have one of those plugged into my 2011 box right now that is connect via USB3 and is the main storage pool for the server. They retail for $600 but I am sure there is a deal out there somewhere.
