Now that terabytes are cheap, one of my holiday projects is to consolidate my family's digital photos and videos in one spot and delete all the duplicates. Further down the road a nice consolidated storage/archive location for security cam photos/video might leverage the same infrastructure.

I'm just wondering whether there are any obviously good choices for an easy-to-setup-and-use Ethernet file server that "just works" out of the box. i.e. By way of contrast, what I don't want is some Taiwanese designed RAID box that only a EE could love or that requires a Linux guru to configure.

Yes, I already know Google is my friend. Aside from that, any suggestions welcome.
