Thanks to a tip from my good friend and co-host partner Chris Lux over at the Home Server Show, you can now get the HP MediaSmart LX195 for the bargain basement price of $199. The deal is most likely a short one so you will need to act fast!
As we have discussed on the podcast before, the LX195 is a bit underpowered with the 1.6 Ghz Atom processor and only 1 GB of RAM. It does come with a 640 GB hard drive and 4 USB ports that limit your total storage to only the physical size of each external drive. Practically speaking, that would be around 4 to 8 TB. The HP software is an added plus, but it doesn’t have enough juice to handle the newest 2.5 version update from HP. But hey, it’s $200!
If you have questions on this deal or have other issues, just leave a comment.
