I liked everything about the HP MediaSmart LX195 Windows Home Server except the price. It’s fast and quiet. The software suite is extensive and even includes compatablility to OS X’s Time Machine. But the $399 MSRP is totally not worth it for only 640GB. Thankfully HP has a deal on the server right now.
The small print is that in order to get 50% off, you have to purchase any HP consumer notebook or desktop from HPdirect.com. If that’s alright with you, just check the box during the system customization to order the server at $199. We just wish it was $199 everyday.
