Did the drive last as long as it should?

Sam Lair "Sideways", Amazon
11 February 2015
  • Summary: Bought this drive in September of 2012 for home network storage and automated backup of 2 computers. It worked pretty well for backup. The Seagate dashboard software sometimes needed to be refreshed several times before it could find the drive on the network.

Good hard drive

KT, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: Good hard drive, does connect to the router well but frequently drops off the network and needs to be reconnected. That unreliable connectivity makes it less than desirable for consistent use.

Good value for $; not perfect; SW incomplete

Nicholas E., Newegg
6 August 2013
  • Pros: Simple, cheap works well unattended after initial setup, USB port for printer and expanded storage. Only one USB port but you can attach a switch and plug in several items. It's a Linux device so a simple hack gives you direct access if you're so inclined. Don't know why others have had trouble, ...
  • Cons: Backup software is a nag version, constantly nagging you to buy more.

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.

Meh

David W., Newegg
27 May 2013
  • Pros: Simple to setup. If you want to hack it, it's possible to ssh into the thing from the local network side. The password includes the serial # printed on the bottom. It's running Linux and SAMBA, and you can download and install RPMs built for the ARM processor.
  • Cons: The device shows up on your network as a "\\GOFLEX_HOME" and you can't change it. That's fine if you only want one, but how about when you outgrow it and need to add a second one? Of course, if you can hack it and rename it that way. Also, the backup software that comes with it is a trial version.

After 3 months

PhoneSafe U., Newegg
7 March 2013
  • Summary: 1, Network Switch got powered off and came back, but GoFlex_Home disappeared. I had to power down and power back GoFlex_Home to see it. I dropped an egg because this inflexibility. This probably is the only one I know that would need reboot to get back to network.
  • Pros: This is a 2nd review after 3 months ownership
  • Cons: Please view Other thoughts
