Seagate GoFlex Home 3TB

igotdart, TigerDirect.com
27 April 2013
  • Summary: This product does what it is supposed to, just not what I expected it to do. Good NAS solution for someone inexperienced with network sharing. Permissions, privacy, and pass-wording functions are very rudimentary and not adaptable. Seagate's interface software can be a little flaky as well, especially if you want to do something that it wasn't designed to do.

"DO NOT EVER BUY ANYTHING WITH SEAGATE WRITTEN ON IT."

bcgirton, CNET
13 February 2013
  • Pros: Haven't noticed any. Remorseless corporations deserve punishment.
  • Cons: Seagate should be ashamed of themselves, and should give everyone their money back.

Good NAS

Johnny,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: This NAS performs well. I stream Hd movies to an iPad just fine. It has a Twonky media server and so I'm sure there are ways to configure it to suit your needs. I use it to back up and store movies, music and misc other things. I prefer to use a USB3 drive for my Time Machine back ups, which reminds me that if you use a Mac, this will work,just fine for you.

Did not liked it

Bobbros2013,, TigerDirect.com
8 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product on sale last week (a 2T), installed it on windows 7 and it worked well for backup. As usual, for this kind of product, the IU is a real CRAPP and the quality pictures I looked pictures from my ipad via my router, they where realy poor (like low quality JPEG). I looked for solutions to correct this problem, but answereds on there web solution page is also CRAPP, and also no language options.

"Failed after on year and flaky before that"

jimlundblad, CNET
19 December 2012
  • Pros: None, except being black.
  • Cons: It disappears from the network every time you try to access it, and after one year when I tried to restore a backup it was corrupted, and the warranty does not cover data, so now my work is gone!

Seagate network HD

,, TigerDirect.com
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I've been using the product for about a week now, and I've already filled up half of the capacity. Transfer rates are as expected, but the product is more durable than I expected. I've dropped the device more than a couple times, and it still functions. It is compatible with the dock of my other hard drive, so I can get faster transfer rates than over wifi. The UI over the network is very frustrating, however, and it is difficult to manage and share files.

Hard drive failure

,, TigerDirect.com
17 November 2012
  • Summary: The portability of the product is what makes it an attractive buy. However, I had important files backed up to this product and needed to reload windows. Guess what..... The hard drive failed. I checked it just before reloading Windows. I had to bring it in to the data recovery specialists. It will cost $1000-$1600 to retrieve the data. Hard drive failure is a reality. This one failed within a few months. Look elsewhere.
