For "not secure" information, I like the Buffalo Terastation or 
linkstation devices. They are small, compact, quiet, and do not need 
much electricity. I believe they run a chopped down Linux/samba 
solution. Because of that, and not much in the way of user interface, 
they do not have a lot of built-in file-level security 
(ownership/permissions, etc). But for insecure data, they work very well.

Not sure if that was the sort of thing you were looking for...
