So far I'm looking at Drobo and Synology but am open to other suggestions? Ideally whatever I got would be partitioned and back up to each partition on alternate days but as it's really just to back up my working hard drive I probably don't really need that.

I have a Drobo that I like pretty well. Performance is reasonable, it's easy to interact with, and it recently survived a drive failure gracefully. However, that drive failure has me wondering if it runs hotter than the same drives would in a big computer case with more cooling.

Either way, DAS is not a full backup - if your house burns down it goes with everything else. So I think you still need off-site, either external HDs or cloud.
