a) Too expensive or
b) WD and Seagate that fail in a year
If you don't understand why a NAS is so expensive, then build one yourself. All you need is a case, power supply, system board, network adapter, CPU, RAM, hard drive and an OS. You should be able to put it together for less than $150 and guarantee that it won't fail within 3 years, right?

Let's get real. The reason that you have "b" is because they are too cheap.
