What is the cheapest/best way to get around 1TB of RAID 1 home storage external to any particular computer?

I've been looking at eSATA devices like the LaCie 2big and also at NAS devices, but I'm kind of lost. Cheapness and data redundancy are important, performance less so — mostly I just need more space than I have on my desktop machine right now and I'd like to have something flexible, long-lasting, and safe enough to store important odds and ends that it would be painful to lose in a drive failure. If it matters, all of the computers that will talk to it will be running Linux.
