Recommendations for networked storage?

I want to upgrade my storage at home.  At the moment I have 850Gig of storage sitting in the corner of the room, with a lot of video, music, documents, etc. on it.  But it's running out of space, and I need to buy something bigger.

Requirements:
1) At least 2TB to start with.
2) Some degree of resilience - my current system is RAID5 - so I can lose one of the four hard drives in it without losing any data.
3) Networked.
4) SMB (Windows Folder Sharing).
5) Requires no admin.  I do not want to created my own networked file server - I want something I can plug into the power and network and forget about.
6) Preferably upgradeable.
7) UPNP would be nice.

The Drobo looks lovely - but is horribly expensive when you include the Droboshare for network access.  Anyone got any suggested alternatives?
