Although not exactly up to today’s standards, this hardware is decent enough to consider resurrecting.
I wasn’t going to take the little Media Smart until I saw how well-made it was.
I was recently given an old HP Media Smart EX470 server along with some other junk hardware.
Although it has no graphics, a slow single-core AMD Sempron CPU, and just 512 MB of RAM, I was able to revive it quite satisfactorily. HP released the first Media Smart server in 2008, and there was much interest at the time both for the compact yet innovative hardware and the embedded Windows Home Server operating system.
I found a used 2 GB DDR2-800 (PC2-6400) DIMM for $15 on e Bay and ordered that.
