HP MediaSmart Server

January 31, 2008

I picked up one of these today at Circuit City. I’m just installing the software on my laptop now, and I’ll post more about it later. I could have installed the OEM white box version on a spare machine, but I was really impressed by the demo I got of the MediaSmart Server from HP while I was at CES. I also wanted to get the customer out of box experience with the product. So far it’s been great.

What I’m really impressed with about this device initially is the size and the design of the machine. It’s about half the size I imagined that it would be when I first looked at the photos. It’s quite elegant and though it’s a network device that requires no display or direct interaction, I don’t feel a need to hide the machine in a closet.

It’s quick and easy to set up your HP MediaSmart Server and create up to 10 user accounts using the Microsoft® Windows® Home Server operating system. You can also open a predefined Guest account for additional file sharing capabilities.

The HP MediaSmart Server also lets you set up your own securepersonal web address* to allow file access by remote users. Every PC on your network will have the Control Center software giving users the ability to browse shared folders on the HP MediaSmart Server, add photos to the HP Photo Webshare and perform an immediate backup of their computer. Set the access privileges for each user at the shared-folder level to allow Read/Write, Read Only or No Access. You also control the remote access privilege for each user. Approved users will then be able to remotely access shared files and even applications on their home PC through a secure connection from any Internet-connected PC.**

HP has a multimedia demo here, if you want to get an idea of what this product is designed to do.

    I got one of these for Christmas. I added a second 500GB drive and a 2GB stick of memory (for $30, why not?) and have been extremely happy with it–it backs up our computers at home and provide a nice redundant file storage for all my photos so that I no longer have to keep grabbing DVDs from a drawer when I want to go back to an old picture. It’s funny that it’s something I’m so happy with even though I don’t even have to think about it: once I had it set up and got over the novelty of looking at the console just to see what was going on, it’s been unobtrusive and just quietly backing everything up.

    Good to hear Tommy. I’ve been surprised at how low maintenance the machine has been. Like you said, once you get it set up, you just let it run. I also need to get some additional storage space. It would be perfect if I had only one or two machines to back up, but with the kids and my wife’s machine I have a total of 6? Och. :)
