View Full Version : Anyone using an HP MediaSmart server?

I'm thinking of replacing a variety of external hard drives and a BuffaloStation NAS with an HP MediaSmart EX470 server. Anyone using the EX470 (or EX475)?
I had considered re-purposing an (really) old PC but it would end up costing almost as much as a prepackaged EX470.

I haven't used an HP MediaSmart but I do use the OS that comes with those units. It is called Windows Home Server. You can find more info about it here.
I personally love the OS but would prefer to have it in a bigger case then the HP comes in. I wanted to be able to add more HDs without much problem and wanted a little more RAM and maybe a faster CPU so I decided it was better for me to build a new computer from the ground up. I came from a Buffalo Terastation and don't regret it at all.
