Seriously. Check out the competition, to be sure, but my Synology? It Just Works. And It Just Works Really Well. And it's the size of a large toaster, which means it can fit on a shelf in a closet, or behind some audio devices in your media center. Buy, insert hard drives, install OS, it does the rest - automatically. Hard drive dies? Shut it off, replace drive, turn it on, it does the rest with minimal intervention. If you want to be paranoid, you can even set it up to be able to survive two disk failures.
