Actually, 500 GB drives are currently between 6,000 and 7,000 yen each.
So you could set up basically the same NAS for 14,000 yen plus a bit of
time to set up RAID and Samba on a desktop comptuter. If you're missing
the desktop computer, that would set you back another 30,000 yen or so
for a very basic configuration (motherboard with built-in video, cheap
CPU, a half gig of RAM, and case).

A basic machine with a gig of RAM an AMD Sempron 3000+ and a 500Gb
drive is a smidgen under 29,000 yen from these guys:

Hit the 'Customise' button and upgrade the 80Gb drive to 500...

I'd get one myself if I had a spare 30,000. My PC is basically dead and I'm writing this from 'er indoors' iBook :(
