  • Excerpt: (1 items) HP MediaSmart EX495HP’s MediaSmart EX495 proved to be the one of the fastest network-attached storage boxes we’ve ever tested. The EX495 offers a nice array of services, including backup and restore of network PCs; backup of the unit itself; and photo, music, iTunes, and video serving and sharing.
