The Drobo 5C
Packaging for the 5C carries an image of the appliance on the front. To the right, we have marketing information and down below supported operating systems and connectivity.
There is a full comparison of the Drobo product line on the side of the box that includes the B810n and 5N Network appliances.
Drobo has kept with the amazing unboxing experience, the box above greets you upon opening.
The scope of delivery includes the power adapter, Type-C to C cable, and reading materials.
The 5C comes in a protective cloth bag.
The bottom of the Drobo houses regulatory info to the right and model information to the left.
The five drive bays of this appliance are tool-less without drive trays. Each slot has its LED to the right while the entire unit has a range of LEDs at the bottom.
The back of the unit houses the power switch, power input, and USB-C port.
I am using the ASUS Thunderbolt EX 3 to test the Drobo 5C; this AIC uses the Intel L6540 capable of 40 Gbit/s speed, PCIe 3.0, HDMI 2.0, DP 1.2 and USB 3.0.
