I have an urgent need for new NAS

My network-attached storage box is FULL. Full full full. When I bought it, a terabyte was a huge amount of data. Now I have nearly that much just in photos, and it's only growing.

My needs are pretty simple: RAID, gig-e, low-hassle, reasonable price-for-performance.

What's currently popular?

I can get a 4TB Buffalo LinkStation for $529 and a 6TB model for $729. That's raw capacity, but it's still a huge upgrade. It looks like a bare 1.5TB drive is $110 right now.
