I'm looking for recommendations & personal experience with low - mid range NAS systems. Types, brand, value for money, reliability etc.

I have a client with around 600gb of data that was originally sitting on a Netgear Ready NAS NV series. It became a bit unreliable so i moved the data from the NAS back onto a local PC of the client (the main PC).
Staff are now complaining access the shared files from this PC is to slow & cumbersome. They are only a 3 client network, all running Windows 7, 100mbps/1GBPS through a gibabit switch.

Budget is not great, maybe up to $500 or so, but i NEED it to be reliable.

I'd be interested from past experiences what's good & what's not so good.
