Great

Manuel Filipe de Araújo Sá, Amazon
1 October 2013
  • Summary: This sharing device is great, now I can share my hard drive wirelessly at home with my family and share online with my friends. What I like less is that the pogoplug online website doesn't read/preview all type of files, for exemple ".mkv" extension files, but that is a minor issue.

Disappointing

  • Summary: The fact that use of this piece of NAS hardware is so tightly bound to PogoPlug, which is mickey mouse at best is a problem. I think if it was easy to just make this work as a NAS server, I'd be over the moon but it's too much of a chore to work around and get rid of the PogoPlug SW

Not Bad overall, Good for storing photos on home network if a bit on the slow side.

  • Summary: Relatively easy to set on network, although still cannot connect to stereo to stream music. Storage options are good, currently with a 1TB disc.

Very good if you already have a Seagate goflex portable drive

Ashwin, Amazon

  • Summary: Go for it if you already have a GoFlex portable drive. Supports Streaming of media onto UPnP/DLNA compatable devices. Can map it as a network drive on Windows and Android Phones. Dont like the fact that i need to connect to pogoplug via internet to manage the device [Connect,Disconnect]. Other than that it works just fine. Looks out for other latest options if you dont have a portable hard drive.

  • Summary: The product does exactly what it says. The product arrived very fast for me and the quality was excellent. Id recommend it for anyone who wants to set up their own cloud storage.

Excellent

Steven Bland, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: Well packaged, well built product, connects very easily into existing home network. Pogo Software is as good as any other although you do have to pay a yearly subscription for increased functionality. Nothing for free these days! Only real grumble is the poorly named network name that I do not appear to be able to change very easily. Lots of support on the internet if you do need to do this. I primarily use this device with a Sonos setup and no problems for me.

Good NAS Drive

K. Parkes "kap", Amazon
12 August 2012
  • Summary: I have configured this kit along with my previously purchased goflex drive, to use as a normal NAS drive to backup my laptop via a wireless network (kit attached by cable to the wireless router). I use memeo instant backup (that came with the goflex drive) and it works well. Every time I log on to the network, memeo checks and backs up my files when needed.

Seagate GoFlex NET Media sharing Device

Pierre "IPW", Amazon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: This took a little effort to get it working. The drive attached was not directly accessible; you had to go through pogoplus. files could not be dropped onto the drive from remote devices. After a week, the green light (indicating net connectivity) turned orange (Not connected) and I was not able to access the attached drive in any way what-so-ever. I tried all ways to correct this - it was invisible to the LAN.

Pogoplug in disguise; clever device but make sure it is what you want

Mr. T. Anderson "onlyconnect", Amazon
8 March 2011
  • Summary: This device is a dock for external hard drives which you connect to a router with an ethernet cable, so that you can access the drives over a network or over the internet. It has two special slots which accept only Seagate GoFlex portable drives, and one standard USB 2.0 port to which you can attach any external drive (of any brand) provided it has a USB connection.

  • Summary: diese festplatten loesung ist gut, von der erst in betriebnahme mal abgesehen funktionier sie super. das man sich unter poguplug anmelden muss hatte ich noch anfangs nicht ganz verstanden , wenn´s da aber laeuft so so ist diese konzept auch nicht schlecht. bei mir laeuft es unter 2 mac´s und ein ipod im netz (wifi und lan) und auch aus dem internet.geschwindigkeit aus dem internet ist natuerlich abhaengig vom proveider (upload) und dem router.
