The Bottom Line For a reasonable price, the HP MediaSmart Server EX495 is a great network storage, content managing, and backup device for home and small business environments. It offers stellar performance, a great backup solution, and remote access options that are easy to use. With or without its new Fusion hybrid drive, Apple finally has a Mac Mini that competes well against mainstream Windows PCs in the same price range.
