Have an HP Mediasmart HP495 and use it with WHS Ver 1 for music collection streaming (with Squeeze Server), photo and video storage. Have storage with duplication for all on a series of 4 HDD's within the unit.
Needing additional storage and now considering the eSata port on the unit. Some pricey units around with 4 bays that will work with port multiplier to extend the storage from the unit.
Looking for 2019 advice on options as the last time I looked at this out of simple fancy, Icywork and Mediasonic seemed to be two in the running, albeit it seems Icywork was the more durable and reliable based upon what I read at the time.
