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. I have it sitting on a shelf next to the cable modem connected with a short cat 5 and don't even notice it during the day.
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. Loads of apps and pluggins to use with Windows Home Server.
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. And yes, It has a double core.
Summary: This server has it's limitations compaired to it's larger MediaSmart brothers, but it is small and compact and works well. It's not much larger than an external hard drive, but yet is powered by Windows Home Server. I picked this up on Amazon for 200 bucks which was awesome! If you're looking to do PC bakups and don't care about media streaming and huge capacity, then this is your machine!
Summary: I needed a simple home server and I just could not justify the $400+ costs. I have simple needs for my server. I own 4 1TB USB hard storage drives that I use to move data around and so this server allows me to connect them without any hassle and I get instant expansion. I have four working computers and an XBox but I don't need a real server to connect them, just share movies, keep the restore files, and some data.
Summary: This little HP is an integral part of my home network - I don't use it for video backup or content delivery. To understand why I like the HP, it helps to understand how I use media in my home, and what other devices are in use. Background: I have a complex network in my home - most of which is wired gigabit ethernet to various clients throughout my home. I have several media players/servers and Network Attached Storage, with more than 15TB available on my network.
Summary: I was looking for a NAS and found this great home server in the same price range... it does what HP says it does and does it nicely, also comes with an absolute 5 star customer service from HP.
