HP MediaSmart EX470

deonunit, Ebay
19 February 2011
  • Summary: I like the fact that i can back up all my computers and not have duplicate files.Its real quiet and very energy efficient.The thing that i do dislike is that it is very difficult to remote access.You have to go thru some many parameters just to even get it up and running. Overall its a great device and a must have for tech heads like myself.

Full recovery without a hitch.

greatwhitecrane, Ebay
11 November 2010
  • Summary: I have used an HP MediaSmart EX475 Home Server for two years. It has worked exactly as advertised--including a full recovery of one of my client PCs being backed up by the Home Server. The client PC died one day--the hard drive went out. I went to Frys, bought a new drive, and put it in my dead PC. I then used the restore disk from the Home Server and requested my PC to be restored. It worked like a charm.

  • Summary: Own a few of these - Data errors typically are a result of imminent motherboard and powersupply hardware failures - I typically use as parts to repair cosmetic issues on other units

Disappointing fake

wdavis111, Ebay
10 June 2009
  • Summary: What was advertised as an HP MediaSmart EX470 "without disk drives" turned out to be a mere shell sent to Circuit City as an advertisement. There was no real power supply, no real motherboard, no backplane for hot-swappable drives, nothing really that would clasify it as an EX470 except for the external case. Add to that the fact that HP doesn't sell the parts to even turn this into a functioning MediaSmart server, and it's pretty much worthless.
