This is a solid and reliable product, my iPhone debacle put aside, that is well-featured and performs admirably. It is not the cheapest four-bay NAS product on the market, though, and it is a long way from being the most affordable 1TB media server....

This is a chunkier, more serious proposition than its rivals, and it works a treat. The chassis is bigger, but it's far from huge, and it feels well-built. The reason for that extra girth becomes clear when you open the mesh ‘door' on the...

Verdict: HP's MediaSmart EX490 isn't cheap, but it's packed full of useful features. A Windows Home Server (WHS) is an alternative to a network-attached storage (NAS) device for sharing files among all your networked computers. It's...

Det tager ikke lang tid at få serveren i gang, og det er næsten overvældende, hvor meget den kan. Her er fx backup, fildeling og medieserver. Serveren leveres med et godt udvalg af delte mapper, der gør det nemt at holde orden i de...

EX490 gir flere gode grunner til å smile, selv om vi allerede har rynket litt på nesen over videoformatstøtten. Den største rynken får vi likevel av prisen.Selv om den inkluderer en harddisk på 1TB, er 4995 kroner for det...

Fire usb-porter og en eSATA-port gir ekspansjonsmuligheter. Selv om det ikke er offisielt støttet kan skrivere også deles i nettverket. Satser man på en HP MediaSmart EX490-maskin vil vi først og fremst anbefalte at man også...
