I can't see spending ~ $700 for an empty shell and a NIC interface to
get such poor performance.

$700? That's like €200? ;-)

Amazon has them discounted right now, but it is showing LIST prices of

$499 for the Drobo itself and
$229 for the Droboshare

Or $728 combined. Sounds like $700 to me.

Looks like you can save $150 off of that if you get the current sale
price. That is still almost $600. Not sure where your €200 comes

It comes from the $/€ exchange rates.
The US dollar is a weak currency compared to the euro.
This means that importing is cheap for Europeans, but exporting is expensive.
It was meant as a joke but you didn't "get" it. Must be a cultural thing.
Sorry. Srsly.

I had no idea the Euro was that strong / dollar was that weak. Last I
knew it was around $1.50 so I assumed you were being serious.
