What devices have you been looking at..? So we can give opinions..!! also what are you wanting your NAS to do i.e data types, Streaming media, auto machine backups etc etc..?? Raid should be a prerequisite in my opinion drives fail regularly and even a mirrored disk (Raid 1) will protect your data.

Get one that has atleast raid 1 (and Hot swappable). otherwise it's just an over priced external HD.
