For those interested in pre-built WHS systems, HP is releasing new versions of their MediaSmart servers.

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2337628,00.asp

"The HP MediaSmart Server ex485 with 750 Gbytes of hard disk storage is $599, while the HP MediaSmart Server ex487 with 1.5 terabytes of storage inside it will be priced at $749. Both can be preordered on Jan. 5 from etailers including Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Buy.com, Frys.com and Newegg.com, and will be shipped in February, HP said."

"Finally, HP said the first 200 consumers who visit HP Home & Home Office or call (888) 271-2982 between Jan. 5 and Jan. 11, 2009, to reserve a MediaSmart Server, and use coupon code "AC5674", will receive $50 off."

I wonder if this will be two 750's or a single 1.5.

Not sure. With the questionability of the 1.5TB Seagate's (whether warranted or not), I would lean toward 2 750's. Especially in a set-and-forget product.

Any word on when this will be shipping? Or just pre-order dates?

Thanks

Has anybody seen any of the new HP WHS's in stores?

I'm in Canada and I've been looking around and they aren't even on the HP.ca website yet..
