This contest is over. Thanks to all who participated.

Over the last few  months, I’ve reviewed and talked about the HP X510 Data Vault. It is a stand alone server that you can use as a home or business backup, or a full multimedia server at home or on the web. Well now you can have your own, as we are announcing the Data giveaway! You can win one of 7 HP X510 Data machines!

Each web site will run contests their own way. At the end of their week, they will give away the X510 StorageWorks Data Vault. Head over to the following sites to find out more information:
