    If you only need 1TB... external HDD plugged into a server and shared via that? Okay, it's not pretty, but it'd give you 1TB of networked storage. I don't really know the consumer-level NAS stuff so my next step would be to recommend the Sun kit, but then you're looking at 4TB minimum and it won't be cheap.

    We have 2 Thecus N0503 ComboNAS boxes kitted out with 3x1TB drives in EduGeek (one in the office and one in Aberdeen with Shaun). They are pretty damned good, but not cheap. They have a cheaper 2 disk version on Scan for £130 (without disks) and I can recommend them whole heartidly.

    Wink ReadyNas

    We've just bought a Netgear ReadyNAS NVX. Bought with 1 TB and got 1 free think the offer is still going.

    Very easy to set up and you just backup to the network share. Drives are setup in redundant array as well so you can worry a bit less about failiures.
