Very Slow Server

Anonymous, Newegg
3 December 2010
  • Summary: I think the main culprit is the 2gb of memory, not enough to run a server properly. Even when you can log into the menu it can take several mins before you can click on the various options each time. Both CPU's loads jump from 20% to 90% constantly.
  • Pros: In theory its a good product
  • Cons: Runs painfully slow, it can take up to 5 mins to log into the server.

  • Summary: Excellent product, and very simple to set up and manage (if manage is what you can call it.)

  • Pros: Easy to set up. Easy to configure. Easy to use. If this thing was any easier, I'd think it was my sister. Price was good too; got it for $550.
  • Cons: Only thing that cost this bad boy an egg was the drive trays. The tray frames are pretty flimsy, and i can almost guarantee i'll be repairing and replacing them.

Incredible Little Machine! Size Doesnt Matter!

Brian S., Newegg
29 July 2010
  • Summary: When I got it out and put it on my desk, I could not believe how small it is. After setting it up and putting it through my torturous paces, I got to see how powerful this little guy really is. I saw this on sale a few weeks ago and missed out.
  • Pros: After quite a bit of research I have found the X510 is identical to the EX495 Media Smart server. IDENTICAL. It is a rebranded HP media smart server that targets small business. All of the features plug ins are the same. ONLY Difference is that the EX495 comes with a 1.5 TB hard drive and the X51...
  • Cons: Not really a con but I would have loved to have a extensive manual. Itunes server built in? Why not have a Zune or an independent music server program. Its microsoft OS isnt it!

Works Great

Timothy K., Newegg
9 December 2009
  • Summary: Wish there was a way to remove or hide defualt shares on server. We dont need "Videos", "Recorded TV", etc - these might be ok in home use but not needed in office situation.
  • Pros: Works great and as expected. All I did was plug it into the network and it started right up. Easy to manage server and create Users. Once utility software is loaded on office PCs backups began that night as scheduled. Sits quietly and does it job of network storage device and backup device.
  • Cons: None so far
