Reasonable product...

Eugene E. Sampieri, Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: This is a reasonable product for what id does. It is a bit slow on the network. I uninstalled the software it came with as it seemed to cause problems. The software is not needed. The on line browser interface is all that is needed to set defaults. It would be better if the drive itself had a USB interface to allow direct connection to a PC. You have to get a separate dock to do this.

Its okay, but will not buy another...

D. Sherlock, Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: After experiencing both Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex devices and WD My Book and My Book Live devices, and evaluating the management of both NAS product lines, I lean strongly towards the WD line than I do the Seagate line. I use this drive occasionally, as a backup for my WD device, but generally keep it powered down, as it is just not as convenient to set up, configure, assign shares to, or authenticate to, when comparing to the WD.

Works as advertised

J. Kim "ehhh", Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: This Network Attached Storage Device works as a 3TB hard drive connected to a network. As a media server it has limited capabilities due to the fact that the media server is not configurable without extensive Linux knowledge. Trying to install 2 GoFlex NAS on your network presents problems with NetBIOS names being fixed and exactly the same. Seagate limits usability of 1 NAS per network.

Promising product, but yet-to-deliver as advertised

E. Mugambi, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: I have had this product (Seagate GoFlex Home 3TB Ext. HardDrive STAM400)for a week and it's been a frustrating experience trying to make the device perform as advertised. PROS 1) Easy to assemble the pieces and connect to wireless network. 2) Easy to instal the program into a windows vista 32bit laptop and immediately begin backing up docs, pics & videos.

Seagate 2TB NAS

Fred A. Cresce "Fred Flintstone", Amazon
3 September 2012
  • Summary: Seems like a great idea to keep files in a central location. My WIN 7 64 Premium machine was the only computer out of 5 that would show the Seagate in Network devices. The others are mostly WIN XP sp3 and I have to use Windows Explorer to find the GoFlex. I did not install the dashboard because it wants to trap me into backups. I'm not interested in backups. This NAS is for keeping files in a central location, not backing up my computers.

Nice hardware, but buggy software

Andrew, Amazon
14 June 2012
  • Summary: The hardware seems fine so far. The base is heavy enough that the product does not tip over easily. It is more quiet than my computer so I don't hear the GoFlex when my computer is on. When my computer is off, the GoFlex makes a faint whooshing sound which does not bother me. There is no fan in the GoFlex so it is just the normal sound of a hard drive. Actually the hard drive spins down when not in use. This helps with heat as well.

A very middling product with great hardware but let down by software

Chatrathi V. Kalyan, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased the GoFlex Home Storage System a fortnight ago and i come out extremely unimpressed by the bungled software philosophy that gives aways the advantage of a very strong hardware storage system The Good: Sold NAS system and the speeds are not terrible at all. I have connected multiple computers and it works good.
