HP is offering the 500GB Media Vault mv2120, a storage device designed to store, protect and share digital media. HP says this is the first in a new category of affordable, easy-to-use products for the central storage, content sharing and backup of all computers on a home or small business network. The mv2120 can be set to automatically back up important media and digital files weekly, daily or as often as needed.
The Media Vault mv2120 also offers some of the features found in the HP MediaSmart Server, including Photo Webshare, iTunes server and remote access. With Photo Webshare, HP said consumers can create a photo-sharing website on the Media Vault, and with iTunes server, they can centralize their iTunes music library for playback on any computer running iTunes on the network.
The mv2120 is available now for $300.
