QNAP has better linux NAS units with thunderbolt and SSD caching. I heard Drobo uses it's own proprietary raid scheme so if you have a hardware failure, you have to send it to them to recover your files or buy a new Drobo.

With QNAP and Synology, they use standard linux formats(Ext3/EXT4), so you can install your drives into your Desktop tower, boot into a USB Linux Stick, and mount the raid in linux to recover your files. When i built my PC, i made sure it had enough hard drive bays for this, but as long as your motherboard has enough sata ports i guess you could just let the drives dangle next to the computer on the floor.
