I recently picked-up a Synology DS 209. What a wonderful little NAS box this thing is. I dropped two 1 TB SATA drives into the unit and set-up was in less than ten minutes. This of course does not count the time required to format both the drives. The ajax powered Admin control panel is simple yet powerful. One of the best options for me about this box was the fact that there is a built-in iTunes server. So much easier to share the media amongst the family. I only say 5 out of 5 stars for this piece of hardware from my experience.
