AFAIK, no.  Here's my plan - I've got an Infrant ReadyNAS with 4x500GB 
Seagate disks in it.  As soon as:

1. 1TB drives are generally available to the public
2. Infrant releases their long-anticipated firmware update with:
 	a) 2.6 Kernel,
 	b) NFS over TCP, and
 	c) filesystems >2GB

I'll be buying 4*750GB Seagate drives from the cheapest place I can get 

It's just a matter of time... ;)
