These are 9.5mm drives, so you can fit six of them in a 5.25" bay. Not the cheapest or fastest 2TB drives, but you can make a nice server with a small case/PC.

Samsung M9T but they'll be Seagate branded (ST2000LT003 from memory).  They work fine, I used to use 4 of them in a RAID6 in my old server, in an IcyBox 4in1 frame.  I shucked mine out of Seagate externals.

 

With the IcyBox 6in1 frame and a HBA you could have a 6 drive RAID6 holding 8TB in a single 5.25" bay.  THAT is data storage.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Icy-Dock-MB996SP-6SB-SATA-Backplane/dp/B0092X97X2 - 6x 2.5" 9.5mm SATAs in 1 5.25" bay.

 

Fit that to a case like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/In-Win-BM639-Mini-Audio/dp/B008XI3EEU/ and whatever board you like (perhaps an Avoton AsRock board) - instant teeny-weeny server.
