Sarotech Frigo RAID enclosures

With a name that sounds awfully like a certain other external RAID enclosure, and a logo that's also pretty similar, we could waste plenty of column inches calling Sarotech's Frigo hard-drive enclosures Drobo knock-offs.  Instead, let's just accept that these things happen, and ask whether space for up to two (Sarotech Frigo RS-2) or four (Sarotech Frigo RS-4) 2TB SATA drives are tempting enough to overlook any similarities.
