LG N2B1DD2 1TB x 2 (3.5", 7,200rpm) Super Multi NAS with Blu-ray Re-Writer @ newegg.com for $290 w/ promo code: EMCJJJB44 + free shipping

Review (Summary: mediocre performance; iSCSI only works with BD):

Custom firmware :rockout: (adds SSH etc.):

IMO:
Certainly not the best NAS, or even a very good NAS, but at a competitive price when storage is expensive with a ton of cool features and the potential for custom firmware.
