Found 26th Aug 2010
Data Robotics are having a Back to School Special, where you can buy a Drobo (2nd Gen USB/Firewire) for £194, FS for £431 & S £501. Delivery is £19.17. Use code SCHOOL2010UK.

Normal price for a Drobo is ~£293 (Scan etc..)

Discount is only for three days, the the Drobo price rises to £226. See info.drobo.com/bac…ool


AWESOME deal! But how do you get to the UK store? I tried entering the 'SCHOOL2010UK' code in the EU store but the code doesn't work, although it does list Great Britain as a shipping destination.

Oh, and will the unit have a 2 year warranty? All Drobos sold in the UK include a 2 year warranty.

In the EU store, add a Drobo to the basket then change the currency. The code will work.


The offer appears to be misleading though. The MSRP on the 'Back to School' page lists the Drobo FS as £450, but the site sells it for £495. With the discount, the unit is £431 + shipping. Not quite the £388 listed on that site.

The Drobo only dropped to the lower price earlier, they've had some problems with the codes. If you're looking at the FS drop them a mail & they'll sort it out. [email protected]drobo.com

Thanks dude. I've sent them an email.

Sent them multiple emails and got the price down to £388 for the Drobo FS (as per the Back to School page) after much arguing. This morning I see it's back to £431.

Don't forget that they add 15% VAT to your order. This has completely put me off the DroboStore.
