I got one of their 2-bay models a few years ago, configured as a RAID1 external backup source, was like $100 and still works properly and fast enough (I use eSATA connection). Amazon has plenty of their products, though the shipping to your location might be expensive...
How much will this cost you to be shipped to your country:

How about 4 external USB 3.0 enclosures and a USB 3.0 hub then? That's probably your cheapest solution to get 4 drives worth of external capacity with reasonable bandwidth.
