Summary: I own a PC repair shop, so I know what I'm doing. This drive died (no data recoverable) a few months into service and Seagate's manufacturer warranty on the unit apparently had run out THE EXACT DAY I ORDERED IT.
I found this kind of dirty. If it wasn't for their faulty product I ...

Summary: When it works I'd give it 4 stars. The only problem is that it is kind of slow. But that is only when it works. The first drive failed in about 2 weeks. It wen completely dead. It was under warranty so it was replaced without any problem.
Summary: I've been in networking for years, and this device showed promise but failed utterly in every way. Avoid at all costs! Not only is the installation and setup completely insane for a home version, but in order to use it properly, you have to then purchase their premium software.
Beware: You can't have two of these on the same network!

Summary: I have had one of these for several years and would have given it a 5 star rating but when I couldn't get this new one to work, I contacted Seagate and was told "Sadly, because the drives have the same network name hard wired into the unit, it is not possible to have two Goflex Homes on the same...

Summary: Product is not easy to configure and stopped working after a few months. After is stopped working I had to reset and now I can't use it at all it says that I don't have the tights to save files even though I am logged in as administrator.
Summary: +Ve - setup was easy, price was ok. -ve - its slow while watching HD movies. After 2 years something failed and its not booting up. Customer service asked me to return the product. I am worried about the 3TB data in it.
DON'T BUY THIS FOR BACKUP OR ANYTHING ELSE FROM SEAGATE

Summary: I bought a brand new 3TB GOFLEX home and was pretty happy with it UNTIL - it failed six months after purchase. I have it connected to a very expensive surge protector and we had a power outage - that's all it took - nothing else electronic in my house was negatively affected.
Summary: I don't write many reviews, but this terrible waste of money has motivated me to, just so others don't have to go through the same painful experience that I have. All of the software that comes with this thing is god-awful and buggy.
