Pros easy setup, cost-effective
Cons can't modify server software
Summary We're experimented with several low-cost large-storage devices, and right now the Buffalo 1T server is our favorite (we have 3, configured as RAID 5, so 750G disk space available). The 1T is definitely the smart price point, the .6T and 1.6T are more expensive per GB.
It'd be nice to get into the servers (they're just Linux boxes), but I can understand why they don't allow that.

Summary With the drop in pricing of large SATA HDD's, It's cheaper to use a pc and load it up with drives. Stores like PC Surplus Online will sell and deliver a 2ghz or better refurb PC for under $300, a 4 port SATA Card is $63 and four 250g Seagate SATA drives, $120 ea., deliverd from ZipZoomFly. Looks like under $900 for a terrabyte file server.
