Summary: This is my second GoFlex Home. The first one had a drive go bad in it and I replaced it with a 4TB drive pretty easily. This second one is still running fine on the original drive. Both of them work great. As others have mentioned the speed isn't the best but since all I'm using this for is backups of media and reading from them with my Roku, it works fine.
Summary: I bought the product about 3 years ago. I use it as a movie streaming device (DLNA) for my bluray players (Sony BDPS-3100). It works great! Easy to install, but may be a little complicated for beginners. No type of coding or anything is needed but remember to directly plug this into your router on the first go. It has two small lights on the front which indicate its connection and the connection of the hard drive to the base.
Summary: I had high hopes for this product and wanted to follow step by step the instalation instructions but when I get to the point of using the included software, surprise: it does not support Windows 8. I had to download the software from the website. Then I wanted to keep synchronized a specified folder (rather promoted by seagate) and again surprise: This function is only 30 for days, then I have to buy it.
Summary: I would definitely recommend this if you are not a heavy user and don't mind the speed. I don't think it transfers at super high speed. The speed depends on a lot of things other than this device, but for me it is a little slower than I would expect. On the good side - installation is easy, it doesn't get too hot after prolonged use and looks sleek with other electronics.
Summary: Early to tell (it's only been in use for a week)- but the product seems to perform as advertised. Saves the data alright, but said data is very difficult to track down & recover. The path seems pretty straightforward for one computer, but finding it for a second on the network is an arduous process. Still in the learning curve, tho- maybe with some more time to investigate I'll figure the tricks needed to streamline the process.
Summary: funciona bien... también logré que me funcionara el DLNA en mi televisor Samsung... Tiene ventajas respecto a la versión USB, en contra solo tiene el tiempo de encendido que es entre uno y dos minutos; y no tiene forma de conectarlo por USB al computador... si tuviera esto seria 5 estrellas.
Summary: Once you do the first backup (looooong), this is almost unnoticeable in the background as a backup tool. One complaint - you can't get rid of the periodic reminder "Do you want to upgrade?" your Memeo SW (upgrade here meaning "buy a cooler version"). The minimal version that comes with the drive is fine for me. I'm backing up 3 PCs and have had no prpblems at all.
