Acer Aspire H340 Windows Home Server Review


Looks like Acer really has a winner. I’ve seen one of these in person and it is pretty slick. Of course, finding a place to put a cube chassis might be a bit tricky, but if you can find one it is pretty spectacular bang for your buck. No excuses now to not have a backup folks!



If you directly compare this machine to any of HP’s MediaSmart machines, Acer’s Aspire easyStore H340 doesn’t have much in the way of extra software or features, but the pricing looks like it is going to be very sharp compared to these machines. In fact compared to the base LX195 machine with which it is likely to have comparable pricing, the H340 looks like a complete steal because of it’s expandability, larger memory and extra ESATA port. Any software that is “missing” can easily be found in the vast array of other WHS addins available.
