Recommendations for a home user NAS setup

Dave asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-14

I am looking for recommendations on a NAS setup

I will award points to solutions that provide me useful detail (ie other articles, links etc) and address meaningfully the following list of considerations.

Please do not respond with comments such as "Buy XYZ" or "I like ABC"
I will not award points to any such lightweight responses and I may ask for the Mods to delete them if I think they cause my question to lose visibility

I'm not cost constrained but not looking for gold plated solutions either
I'm about a 3/5 on the tech scale and ability to troubleshoot where a 2 is an average user. Better than average but not great
I will be mirroring the data, flexible on raid setup but will probably look for 4 drives
I do use torrents and would like flexibility for this on the NAS
I currently stream video wirelessly to my XBOX 360
