I'm only a light user at the minute and got myself a 2TB D-Link DNS-320 and stream my movies and music from that.
The software on it isn't top notch but it serves a purpose, performance wise it happily streams full 1080 content to multiple devices without a stutter.
There is another one on ebuyer with hdd but I couldn't find it using the crapPad.

I would personally get a HP Micro Server after cashback it works out at £100ish, it has 4x 3.5" hard drive bays and you can easily get another in the optical drive bay.
Even after that it has eSATA and many USB 2.0 ports, so your well future proofed for adding storage at a later date.
You could run something like Free NAS on it, or Windows Home Server 2011 which is around £30 to purchase. The advantage of the HP server is you can use it for more than just a nas. Mine backs-up all the PC's on the Network, has various network shares and runs a UT 2004 server.
The HP is great device, plus uses so little power. Many people use these as a home nas i've found from reading on-line forums.
