HP MediaSmart Server Discontinued?

The HP MediaSmart Servers are both being shown as discontinued on the US HP website. Is this a mistake or are new models on their way, since the MediaSmart is almost a year old now. hpshopping.com are showing both models in stock and available for shipping and we personally think that it is an error but await conformation from HP.


From the US HP Server webpage http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/prodserv/servers.html, click on Discontinued/retired systems, then from the following page Home Servers and finally either the HP EX470 MediaSmart Server or the HP EX475 MediaSmart Server.

UPDATE: HP came back to us and as we originally expected the link for the HP MediaSmart being discontinued is an error. They are alive and well and available now for purchase from the Home and Home Office Store on hp.com and from the usual retail outlets and partners.

    I went directly to the hp.com (I’m in the US), clicked “Home & Home Office”, then “Home Servers”, and there they were – the 470 and 475.

    I ended up here:

    I love my hp whs. Use gets more functional over time. It is easy enough to deal with yet has lots of options for expanded use. Luv it.

    If this was such a mistake, why is it still listed. That was August and this is now 6 months later and also why are 2 new models listed in registration page? My husband is craving this but all of this makes me weary to buy.. He always like thr latest and greatest no matter the cost. I don’t want him to have a crack open the box on something I just bought, I want it the best it can be from the start. adding more RAM is no big deal but when I pay $ at least $400-500 I want it right.. HP GET IT TOGETHER!!!!!
