Is there such a thing as a networked external HDD?

Something I've been wanting to do around the home network here is setting up a server kind of as a storage dump, to share music and videos between all the eight or so computers in the house without having to soak up hard drive space on anyone's actual computer.

Plan 1 was to just build a server. Little bit out of my price range right now.

Plan 2 was to just share an external hard drive, but that's a little inconvenient, and streaming off of it would worry me to no end if it's not able to handle the constant demand.

So plan 3 is to find something that is basically a hard drive with LAN access, accessible from any computer and comfortable being used on a near-constant basis to stream data from and to, without wearing out in a couple months or a year.

So! Anyone got any ideas?
Look at all those dead links.
