E.g. the HP Procurve 1800-8G is quite cheap.
I think I paid <200 USD for it.

It's no longer sold, but you can pick it up at ebay.

I took a look at the NL36 server the OP mentioned - and it actually  
does look quite decent.
Maybe not for number-crunching.
But for low-end stuff, it looks OK.
You might even be able to run e.g. Zimbra on it (with RAM maxed out).

Of course, regular backups are highly recommended - but given that,  
and the 3year on-site warranty also available,
it looks to be a good for home-use.
