@hawk, you can not get 4Tb and RAID 5 out of 4 1Tb drives. I know Nodscene was not perfectly clear but the Synology rig noted is a 5 drive unit.

I do not own one but Synology has good reviews. I doubt you would have a problem with stability. Even if you have to reboot it every week what can be expected from a couple grand? What does he expect to do with this "NAS"? Does he realise that RAID is not a backup? Cheap businesses are generally not worth doing business with.
He either fears his fate too much, or his deserts are small, that dares not put it to the touch, to gain or lose it all.
