Default NAS advice

Our old DNS-323 is showing it's age in the office, maxing throughput at around 22 MB/s on our Gigabit switch on large file copies and backups.

I'm looking for suggestions for a NAS and drives capable of 100 MB/s throughput in bursts and 60 MB/s in sustained modes.

I came across the Thecus N5550 which seems to fit the requirements at a cost of around $450 (plus drives). Any other suggestions? Oh, drive size is not a real issue, we currently have around 200 GB of drawings and Excel files after 4 years, so a couple of 2 TB drives should cover us for the life of the NAS.
