4.0 out of 5 stars HP MediaSmart Server EX490, 31 July 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HP MediaSmart Server EX490 (1 TB, Intel Celeron 2.2 GHz, 2GB DDR2 DRAM) (Electronics)
Well excited only had to wait 2 days for my delivery, it was a little hard to get used to at the beginning, but after a week or two now getting used to the system interface. the ability to add extra drives is a joy and very easy to use. the only thing that i think which could improve on, would be, the ability to use one of the usb ports (as there are 4) to input data into the server, rather than just adding the device to the server storage; for instance if you have data on a hard drive that you want to copy on to the server storage, you have to copy it across from hard drive/computer across the network (which isn't as quick as usb connection) to the server. i think this would improve the storage/user/interface process. However onto the plus points,the servers have very many useful functions which apply to use at home or small business; the ability for the server switch itself on and off is a very useful touch as then server does not have to be on all the time. also the ability to configure the time of backups (eg when every one is out of the office). also the ability to retrieve data stored on the server from any other computer over the internet; very useful indeed. Overall i have done a bit of research regarding network attached storage devices and as this is quite an expensive solution, I understand that it is not the best, by no means is it the worst, ie there are more expensive designs that are not as user friendly. For me the expandability and usability are proving the best value for money so far. Loving my media server
