Smokin’ deal. Windows Home Server can’t be found locally (Calgary) for less than $130. Yeah heckuva smokin deal.

Do we know how the LX195 is doing, I haven’t come across anyone who actually owns one or is even interested?

Given such a steep discount, I suspect sales have been very poor and HP is looking to close this product out/get rid of the inventory.

Supposedly, an ADDITIONAL 20%, but it doesn’t deduct it in your cart. . . Then they slap on an additional $29.00 for shipping…..

BONUS!!! Get an additional 20% NOW off when purchased with your PC. (Offer not valid without PC).

I saw this too, Greg, I believe it is probably a left-over promotion that has not been updated to reflect the change from 20% to 50%.

More than likely! That would have been one heck of a promotion….50% and an addtl 20%.

Of course, that $29.00 for shipping kinda hikes it up again! :-\

Just purchased the LX195 on HP.com with my company corporate rate ($379) – 50% with purchase of a PC (ordered a new PC for my daughter going to college) brought it down to $190 and then used a coupon found online for another $30 off purchases of $150 or more to bring it down to $159 after all discounts…with free shipping – got here in 3 days too.

I bought a MediaVault MV2120 four months ago for $172 and I thought that was a pretty good deal. I’ll find a buyer for that and replace it with the LX195 and have way more functionality. Whoo!

I was able to get the lx195 for 135 with half off and then using 100 off lx195 code. I think it was AC9421 (found at slickdeals) but it compared values and somehow came up with 139 shipped.
