I have a NAS configured to RAID 5 (well, two NASes) which is accessible to all devices - so my desktop, Surface, Phone, Herself's Tablets, the Surface in the kitchen, and Chromecast can all access the same files.

Is that worth it? For me, yes. It's not a "cheap solution" but RAID5 means I can survive a HDD failure without any data loss (which I have done) and being able to access important / useful documents from anywhere in the house is very handy. Just for the "kitchen surface" alone: I can add recipes on my desktop with a proper keyboard and update the NAS, then the Surface can pick them up and display them while I'm cooking. And so on.

For me, a NAS is a better solution than a file server: smaller, quieter, lower power consumption, and more reliable as well as easier to maintain.
