OK, Skeeter, where did those pics come from?

FYI, I noticed that there was a second, identical, thread. I deleted it. If there was something I missed there feel free to edit above as necessary.

I'll bet this is the unit that incorporates all those surplus AST* memory-multifunction cards, a 3 terabyte no moving parts hard drive, a media server, and a new OS that handles Windoze, Mac and Unix backups with no input from its owner...and it sells for $99.

It has to be...because I bought a new 485.

:rofl:



* Okay...who else is old enough to remember AST cards, Eagle 8086 computers, semi-graphics cards, and floppy drives that sold for $300 each?

Hey guys... check it out... the LX195 is now being sold on eCOST for $390...

http://www.ecost.com/Detail.aspx?edp=45 ... =155441519

Maybe they jumped the gun, or maybe HP gave them a deal for being such a big HP recertified reseller.

Is it me or does $390 seem rather pricey for something that only has one drive? You are forced to go out and buy USB storage if you want to truly take advantage of WHS data protection. I am not quite sure where i see the market for this device being? For the average user this is probably too pricey for what it does. For the more technically advanced folks this offers very little. Maybe I am just missing something, I would think this needs to be priced somewhere in the $200s

I agree. $390 seems way too much for what you're getting. You can pick up a used EX47X for no more than that and can pick up a new EX485 for only $60 more if you find the right deal. A limited product like that at such a high price point might leave many users disappointed and could end up resulting in bad PR for WHS.

I agree 100% with dBone. You can get an HP recertified EX470 from eCOST for $324 or an EX475 for $400. IMHO the EX47x machines offer greater high-performance (SATA and eSATA) expansion capability than this new machine. (No I'm not affiliated with eCOST... bought my EX475 from them... just sharing with y'all).

Looks like this unit is running EX48x package so I'm guessing it will take the 2.5 update and run well on the Intel Atom 1.6 GHZ Processor 230, so according to HP that machine is better then the EX470 :crazy:
