The only beef I have with the HP LX195 is the price for the amount of storage. Newegg must have heard my cries as the retailer is now throwing in an Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB USB external hard drive. That means, you can get 1.67 TB of storage in a Windows Home Server for only $375. Now that’s a deal, but you better hurry as it ends on 6/25/09.
Don’t forget that we are giving away one of these servers in our recent review. Just leave a comment in this post to be entered.
WHS can automatically add the USB drive to the storage capacity of the server but you will not be able to use it for anything else unless you format the drive. Who’s to say that you have to use the external drive for this server though? Maybe the 670 GB drive that comes with the LX195 is good enough for your needs. The 1TB drive is just a pleasant bonus.
