The mv2120 is positioned as part of HP’s Media Vault line, but its packaging uses a cut-down version of the four-drive MediaSmart server.

The interesting twist is that the mv2120 is said to be running Linux, instead of Microsoft’s Windows Home Server. Pricing supposedly starts at $300, but no word on how much storage that gets you.
