iomega 35887. Good price but I would step it up to one of the better NAS companies like Synology if you really want a NAS. Not a product worth going halfway on
It all depends on what are you looking for.
Synology is better, MUCH better (speed, reliability, features). But you pay twice.
I have D-Link DNS-320[newegg.com] with 2 2TB drives. A year ago the whole setup cost me a little less than $200.
My two cents.
There's a lengthy review of a Synology NAS in Ars Technica. http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/20...-flexible/ They rave about it. A 2-bay Synology is around $200, and includes no hard drives. Despite the higher cost, Synology is the only way I would go.
There are now some dedicated NAS hard drives that are close to enterprise quality but not as expensive. Western Digital Red models. These are MUCH more reliable than standard drives.
http://www.amazon.com/Western-Dig...igital+red $95 for 1tb is higher than you pay for standard drives but is very reasonable for (close to) enterprise quality. Read the "most helpful" customer review on Amazon for this drive. He explains in good detail why cheap drives and cheap NAS boxes are not the way to go.
