How about Buy one (media players are easy to come by) and build the other?

How much storage were you thinking of supporting?

I think the MAXIMUM I'd be using is 2TB, but I've been looking at 1TB - 1.5TB a bit more. I'd like to have a RAID 1 configuration as well.

The media player I was looking at was the WD Live Hub just because it's nice to have that 1TB HDD built in. Are there any similar media players around that would be better? I guess my main concern with the media player is that it plays a wide assortment of video formats.

If I were to go the media player route, then I'd say that I'd use the NAS SOLELY for backup and not have to worry about the limitations of streaming.
