An early christmas present from Drobo

So, some of you may have been reading on my previous blog address that I was part of the Gestalt IT Tech Field Days.

Now, during that event we had the chance of visiting Data Robotics in Santa Clara and getting to know more about the company and their products. We also got a preview of the new Drobo S and DroboElite.

Now, about 10 minutes ago I received word that our friends over at Data Robotics actually organized something special just for their Gestalt IT friends. In fact, they created a special discount code for the readers of the bloggers that visited them during the tech field days.

So, what will this bring you?

  • Drobo – $50 off
  • Drobo S – $75 off
  • DroboPro – $150 off
  • DroboElite – $350 off

All codes are valid until December 31st 2009.

Now, these codes currently only work in the US and Canadian store, but we are working on getting things sorted out so that this will also work in the European store.

So, what are you waiting for?

Oh yeah, the code itself… Just enter the following code when you order and you should see the price reduction:


Take note that this discount is also valid for bundles that include the drives, and you can actually use the current rebates and that will shave off an additional $30 off of the Drobo, and $60 off of the DroboPro.

So, happy hunting for your new Drobo!

I just received a valid code for the European store, that is the following:



I just want to use this chance to make something clear:

These discount codes do not imply that I or Gestalt IT endorse this product, or that we think this is the absolute best NAS device or something along those lines. This was an idea that came up among some of the bloggers because some of us were actually really enthusiastic about the Drobo’s and thought it would be cool to give away a discount code on our blogs since the various Drobo’s tend to be slightly pricey. Thankfully, Data Robotics made this possible, but it won’t mean we will be seeing something similar in the future, or that I received a Drobo for free.
