Drobo 5Dt External Storage Array: Key Features
- Five diskless bays
- Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 connectivity
- Safely store and edit photos and videos
- Drives can be added or hot-swapped
- Supports HDDs and SDDs (sold separately) of any capacity
Designed with You in Mind
Drobo storage arrays have always been designed with the user in mind. From the tool-less design that allows hard drives to be inserted without carriers or screws to the variable-speed cooling fan, the compact and quiet 5Dt was designed to work just as well on your desk as it does in an office environment. Users can also dim the lights and configure drives to spin down when not in use.
All Your Stuff, Automatically Safe
Built on award-winning BeyondRAID technology with single or dual-drive redundancy, Drobo 5Dt protects your data without any user interaction. Consult the online capacity calculator to determine how the choice of drive size, number of drives, and protection levels affect available capacity. Drives can be added or replaced on-the-fly for storage expansion with zero downtime. If you're running low on space, the lights on the front tell you what to do. Just add a drive in an empty slot or remove a smaller drive and replace it with a larger one.
Power of Thunderbolt 2, Flexibility of USB
Drobo is the only storage array that offers both high-speed Thunderbolt 2 and the latest generation USB 3.0 that is both fast and backward compatible. Equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, the Drobo 5Dt can connect up to six Thunderbolt devices and the bi-directional performance of Thunderbolt 2 allows all devices in the chain to achieve maximum throughput. Supports 4K monitor display.
SSD Acceleration Boosts Performance up to 3X
Most storage arrays use either all hard drives or all SSDs. The Drobo 5Dt delivers the best of both worlds by intelligently combining hard drives and SSDs to deliver both capacity and performance. Using a small form-factor SSD boosts performance of popular applications such as Apple Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Lightroom by up to 3X!
Power Protecting Your Critical Data
Drobo doesn’t just protect your critical data from drive failure, but also from power outages. The Drobo 5Dt includes a battery that protects all data – whether active or at rest. Should the power go out while using your Drobo, the battery will protect everything until the power is restored. The battery recharges automatically and is designed to last for the entire life of the product.

Are you eligible for finance?
Applicants must be:
- Aged 18 years or older from the application date
- In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
- Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
- Not working through disability.
Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
