Planning to buy HP MediaSmart EX485 or EX495 for xpenology


Recommended Posts

Hi guys...

 

I'm planning to buy HP MediaSmart EX485 or EX495 for xpenology. Do you have any experience if this will work with xpenology. Pricing for a used one is around 150$ and it support 4 HDDs Sata.

 

Thanks in advance!

As someone who has xpenology on the EX495 and the N54L, I would strongly encourage you to buy the latter. When you have problems, (and you will!), you will be glad that you have a VGA port to help you with the debug!
