Nigel “Cougar” Wilks tipped me that Amazon.co.uk is now listing the EX490 priced at £429 with Free Shipping, but unfortunately there’s not yet any stock available. WeGotServed.co.uk has in addition found several other UK online stores that are listing the EX490, so head over to Terry’s post to see how the prices compare at your favorite store.

There’s still no word on the EX495, but I expect we’ll see that info become available in the near future.

Hi Alex,
i have bought an EX490, I have had mcAfee installed on other machine and for some reasons the installation service is available on this EX490 which i can install. Now I don’t want to install and want to get rid of it. How do i get rid of it so that i can get rid of the message in warning?

You can ignore the health alert in the Server Console, or else remove the installer from the \\servername\software\add-ins shared folder. I suggest creating a backup folder and moving it into there rather than delete the installer.
