If I could find a good mini-tower configuration that included slots for five or more 3.5" SATA hard drives (slots like the Drobo uses, where you don't need sleds), then I'd definitely be happy to give FreeNAS+ZFS a try with some less expensive disks.  I just haven't found a good case+mobo combination in that form factor.
