Dear Lazy Web, Mucho Disks

Dear LazyWeb,

Guess what?

I've run out of disk space yet again :(

I'm looking at the 6 Bay ReadyNas, but... I am wondering if I could also just pick up a USB case that can house half a dozen or more hot swappable drives.

Anyone have any favorite solutions right now? (please note... I hate putting together Linux based systems so I am for plug/play or appliance). The Drobo used to look nice but the last time I looked they were charging for bug fixes and that just pisses me off :(

Thanks!
-Brian

Check out the newly-released Iomega IX4-200d and 100d. They're a closed system, not really hackable (at least so far), but they scale up to 8TB and do both iSCSI and NFS well enough to be certified by VMware for ESX shared storage (along with CIFS, rsync, etc.) They also have some neat features like built-in torrent support, media streaming, Time Machine for Macs, etc.
