large USB drives aren't that expensive anymore

They're not, but I've had some of the worst failure rates with those.

One could get a drobo or a similar device that lets you raid drives and connect to network or USB. They are super easy to work and easy to see when a drive goes back.

Incidentally, the high failure rate is one consequence of the floods in thailand that doubled and tripled hdd prices. Drives made since then seem to have higher failure rates.
