Great Server but you need to know a few things before bidding

srbruce01, Ebay

  • Summary: The EX490 is an excellent small server solution for just about anyone interested in automated client backup, central file storage and media streaming. The server itself can be easily upgraded to provide additional performance. While its a headless unit you can purchase a DEBUG Board to add additional connectivity to the server including a Monitor which will open up a whole new world of possibilities.

  • Summary: I bought my first HP MediaSmart server 5 years ago for personal use (EX-470) which I sold to a customer 1 year ago. Since I sold it I bought 5 more including this one (EX490) which I am using as my file server with 3 x 2TB WD Black hard drives and 1 x 300GB Velociraptor as my system Drive. I sold 2 more to customers and planing to sell the rest of them.

Excellent commercial backup device.

  • Summary: These are awesome, they can back up to 10 computers and will pool their hard drives into one giant drive. We use two of them in our law office to backup 13 desktops and two main file servers. The work flawlessly; and, we have restored from them on more than one occasion. Our machines run everything from WinXP to win7 and our file servers run SBS 2008 and SBS 2011. They have S.M.A.R.T technology.

HP is Geat

  • Summary: These little servers are the Bomb! If you have the need for 100% data protection, get one. I have 3 PC's on my network and it backs them all up.... Cool. I have had to restore the primary drives on two of them useing the backups from HP Server and they worked perfectly. Its so great to know your Bullet Proof as one can be with this server. I dont even use the Media Server abilities, for me its a File Server and Auto Backup dream.

Have no problem saying that I would have another one immediately on the way

  • Summary: It's not often that you have a product that you can brag about having, but the MediaSmart is one such machine. Once it is set up it takes care of its self, and you have to love the auto backups. Have another (server) but you have to manually back up everything and it is a pain to remember.

Hpstorage, HP Mediasmart Server EX490 mitt liv är förändrat!

  • Excerpt: Hpstorage / HP MediaSmart Server EX490 Himmelriket är öppet, eller ja det har ju varit det ett tag men med att sitta på Mac:en i vardagsrummet gör bildhanteringen via den här medialagraren så enkel. Den är kopplad så att alla datorer når den och då jag hanterar en hel del fotografier och egna små filmer är det väldigt skönt att ha koll på sina fotografier.
  • Pros: Så enkelt att förvara fotografier och filmer på .
  • Cons: -

Medialagring för uppspelning på TV:n

kuligheter, Ciao
4 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Köpte denna på Dustin ( www.dustin.se ) Lättast är att gå till den hemsidan och kopiera " HP MediaSmart Server EX490 " för att hitta den ( jag fick klicka runt en bra stund innan jag hittade den). Kostnad 4.495,00 Finesser Ex har den så man kan ha flera hårddiskar- det följer med en på 1000 GB och jag har satt dit ännu en hårddisk då spar hela tiden den ena som en spegel.
  • Pros: Bra att ha alla filmer och bilder på  -  lätt att nå via TV : n ( som måste vara av nyare modell  :  - ) .  .
  • Cons: Lite krånglig installation , bra om man har någon teknisk person att fråga .
