Seeking advice for a cheap good NAS array with 4 TB storage and easily-configurable remote access that allows file and folder transfers?

I'm looking for 4 TB of total drive capacity, not 4 TB mirrored/8 TB total.
I lean more towards good than cheap, but I'm hoping there's a sweet spot. Right now I'm looking at LaCie's 2big Network 2 and Iomega's StorCenter ix2-200.
The only thing stopping me is uncertainty about the remote access. It's important that I be able to transfer both files AND folders remotely, which I can't seem to do with Windows Home Server. (WHS remote access only allows uploads of files, not folders, with a file size limit of 2 GB, and the folder-zipping always breaks on large downloads. I'd also welcome suggestions for WHS add-ins that can make massive folder transfers easier with WHS.)
