Different storage methods for exchange 2010 archive database

We have just moved to exchange 2010, currently all our users have a PST on their local machines for their archives.

I am looking for different methods to store archives on our exchange 2010 machine. I have created an archive DB on the same drive as our main mailbox and it works great.

However we dont have the budget for 300gb worth of 15k SAS drives in an array for archives, so i am looking at alternate ways of storing the DB and basically want to know which of these it is possible to do.

Cheap NAS ( http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?hl=en&q=nas&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=15653112704935392752&sa=X&ei=sQVBTq3VFJDLswalm8TLBw&ved=0CIkBEPMCMAQ# ) or similar

A USB external Hard Drive

Hard Drives mapped from another computer (such as a spare server running 2008 r2)

if there are any other low cost ways out there i would also be interested in hearing about
