Costco has a pretty enticing deal for those of you looking for a home media server. You can get the HP EX485 750GB MediaSmart Windows Home Server for $547.99 which includes an extra 500GB Western Digital SATA drive for a grand total of 1.25 terabytes.
The innards of the machine itself include a 2GHz Celeron CPU, 2GB of RAM, four slide-out hard drive bays, four USB ports, and one eSATA port. Check out Burnsy’s MediaSmart review for more info about how everything works. Spoiler alert: he says “HP has a winner on its hands with the MediaSmart…”
The Costco deal reflects a $50 price drop and is good until the end of May.
