Firewire 800 - What's it for?
You see. I did read the review first. I'll tell you what the firewire 800 port could be for. If you wanted a Drobo when they first came out but held off until there was a decent connection then the second generation Drobo was the one to get because it had Firewire 800. I did and I hope to get much more use from it, so the 800 port would be very welcome (if I wasn't already using a Mac Pro).
Don't always assume that everyone ditches all their gear every two months, just because you get yours provided free.
P.S. Shame there isn't a Firewire 400 port for my CF card reader.
