Details on MediaSmart LX195 leak ahead of official launch

When Windows Home Server launched, it was aimed at the home user who wanted a platform to serve media to different connected devices around the home and as a central location for data backups from networked computers. That all sounds good in theory, but so far home servers have not turned into a big segment.

HP was one of the early computer makers to introduced computers running Windows Home Server and already offers the HP MediaSmart Server EX485 and the MediaSmart Server EX487 selling for about $550 and $700 respectively.

HP is set to round out its MediaSmart Server line with the coming introduction of a new, lower cost MediaSmart server called the LX195. Engadget reports some specifics on the LX195 to go along with some images leaked earlier this month. The LX195 uses a single 640GB internal SATA drive, which is a bit small if you have lots of HD content to store. You can connect external storage though via the quartet of USB ports on the rear of the machine.

The brain of the machine is an Intel Atom 230 CPU -- the other MediaSmart servers use a Celeron processor. The Atom 230 should be enough for video distribution and storage though. Other features include 1GB of RAM and support for Apple Time Machine. Exact pricing for the system is unknown, but it is expected to sell for under $400.

All HP MediaSmart servers recently received a software update that allows the servers to be used or video conversion. The software takes non-copyright protected video and allows it to be modified into formats for playback on mobile devices. The software update also allowed access to content on the server from the iPhone and iPod touch.
