Can only recommend a NAS with RAID 5 (2-4 mirrored disks). Even better: Get two, place one of them in your grandmothers attic and set up a mirror between the two NAS units.

Yes. A second backup off site is critical. If your house burns down you lose all local backups. I don't like the cloud for 2 reasons, broadband upload is way too slow. I'm going to hit a terabyte of images at some point. It's just not practical to get that many images online. Second, I just don't trust it. Google just published the number of National Security Letters they receive from the government:

These are requests for user information that do not require a search warrant or subpoena.
