Post subject:  MediaSmart EX490 still alive and kicking

Figured I'd post here since I still love my little mediasmart server. I had a EX495 in the past but sold it years ago and kind of regretted it because of the small form factor. Fast forward to this year and I ended up winning a EX490 on ebay for $50 bucks, adding a Xeon L5420 for $8, and a 4GB stick of ram for $3. Built my own VGA cable using these forums and then installed UnRAID on it with 3x8TB HDDs and a 14TB drive in the 4th bay. Now I have a great little backup server running that easily fits in my "fire-proof" safe. I know this forum doesn't get as much attention/love as it used to, but wanted to share my experience anyway!
