If you want to invest in some hardware; QNAP or Synology NAS devices would work. These have worked for me fine. If you have old machine and some hard drives laying around, you could install FreeNAS. Both options support user accounts, protocols for all platforms that you have (Windows, Mac, Linux); web based management (if needed) etc.

I like the look of the Synology device. Thanks, –  Eggbox06 Feb 20 '12 at 21:02

Dropbox, it supports LAN Syncing too. It will be good, if you ever need access to the files outside your network.
