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. The Acer Aspire EasyStore H340 is an affordable and flexible NAS solution for both homes and small businesses that don't require advanced features from their networks. The HP MediaSmart Server LX195 is a great network storage and backup device for home users. The device offers stellar performance, and great backup and remote access options for a reasonable price. Microsoft's Windows Home Server is the best, easiest-to-use answer to backing up and corralling all of the disparate media files in a networked home. And delivered in this petite, relatively affordable MediaSmart Server ex745 from HP, you get plenty of storage in a well-designed hardware package. We recommend this system all the way to anyone looking to take full control of their data. The Asus TS Mini is a fast and easy-to-use NAS server for home networking. However, it could be frustrating and time-consuming if you want to service its internal storage.
