Summary: This never was very easy to use and then died causing my wife and I to lose a number of pictures that were important to us. I use Google Drive now as backup and there is no reason for this to exist in my life.
Summary: The media server came minus the hard drive. The seller was excellent. delivery was on time and after sales service was great. we were able to quickly resolve the issue. I have installed a 1TB hard drive and the media server is performing well.
Summary: i received this item in a big box with not enough packaging material , the inside of this item contains very fragile electronic parts and bulb filaments that would be damage if being bounced around due to this being poorly packaged .i did not want to take any chances and returned it .
Summary: Everyone has different requirements for a NAS, but a simple server for backing up multiple computers in my family was all I needed. Additionally, needed to be quiet and unobtrusive because it sits in my office and I didn't want an ugly noisy box. This product fits the requirements perfectly.
Summary: The good news: HP support in Canada has been excellent although of course everything is time consuming. The bad news: 1. The product is not reliable. We have had two hard drive failures. After about 6 months the server started disconnecting and had to be powered down and up again.
Summary: We have a home network with two PCs and two Macs, and this server seemed like a good solution for storage and backups. The advertised support for Mac Time Machine backups was a particular enticement, so when we saw a special offer that made the price very reasonable, we bought one.
Summary: This MediaSmart server was a breeze to connect to our wireless network router. Once connected it has run well for some time now. Our only complaint is a complaint with many home servers and that is there appearance. I don't mind having the server visible to everyone, but my wife hates it.
Summary: This server has been working continuously since I got it 5 months ago. Its the ideal download server using only ~28 watts. Very fast transfer speeds. Runs very cool. Easy to upgrade memory or hard drive if you want. Sleep functions work very well.
Summary: I love this server, is very easy to set up and works very well, I have not complaints about it, you'll find options in internet to upgrade this server, such as memory and disk upgrade and a kvm connector (keyboard, video and mouse output) Actually I used as a workstation too.
