I can second the thumbs up for the Readynas.  Mine's certainly not
going to set any speed records, and they made a batch with flakey
power supplies but did the right thing about it.  They do a good job
of balancing "simple to configure" against "can do complex things".

I use mine for my Time Machine backups, wireless most of the time,
wired if I know that I've changed a lot and need the bandwidth.  It's
not officially supported but the Mac section of has
the recipe.  It's nice to get back home, open the lid of the macbook
pro and notice that it's automagically doing a backup for me.
