If you've got some old hardware around you could set yourself up a FreeNAS box that works really well. You get a web interface and lots of other good features.

An alternative if you've got a bit of cash to spend would be a Drobo which is a really awesome and easily expandable bit of kit.

Nethgear makes a very accessable NAS solution for home users. You should give this a shot. Here is the link http://www.netgear.com/Products/Storage.aspx?for=All&gclid=CPn8uL258ZsCFcZM5QodhE-O_Q

Now if we are talking the best.... Dream Big! Dream NetApp!

Windows Home Server might be what you need if you've got an old PC lying around. I just recently started playing with the webserver (IIS) on it along with the built in file sharing and it works well. My machine is running headless and I just RDP into it. It's pretty much Windows 2003 Server with different limits. If you've got a dominantly Windows network, it would be a good choice. Plus, drive expansion is only limited to your case size.

If you are looking to do extremely low dollar NAS you can also take a look a Lacie NAS drives. These are cheap and they work well enough to get most things done in a home environment.
