  • Summary: The HP EX490 MediaSmart Server brings set-and-forget storage into the home, with a Windows operating system and automatic backups. It's definitely easy to use, though the limited configuration options can be frustrating for tech-savvy users.
  • Pros: Comparatively inexpensive, tool-less drive trays, Windows console is easy to use
  • Cons: Drive trays won't fit 2.5in drives, console can be slow to navigate, limited storage configuration options
