Summary: This thing saves up so much space on your computer, I put all my movies, music and pictures on this one. Basically my computer is super fast since I have nothing on computer itself. The only down side of this is that you can't have 2, 3 or more of the same product in line connected together. Other than that this is cool.
User friendly or User confusing...Just be patient it is worth the time. In my opinion this is an awesome product.

Summary: This is a must have item if you want to backup your laptops or computers with ease and confidence. I Purchased this item November 30, 2012 and have been very happy with it since. It is true that when setting up a new device in the technology world, it can be either user friendly or user confusing. This product works as described and more.
Summary: This is one of my favorite purchases in electronics. The ability to back up on line when I am not around and share files when someone wanted to get them from me or me to get them when away from home is great.
Summary: I did exactly what was written by one of the buyer in comment area and works superb. Highly recommendable. Here is what he said 3 Big Tips: 1) Don't install the software that comes with the drive. Instead open a browser, type in goflexhome.local in the Address field, and press Enter to start the setup. To access the drive remotely go to website www.seagateshare.com. 2) Make sure that you don't use a 10/100 wireless router or 10/100 nic card.
Summary: The storage capacity is great, and since I set up the seagateshare I am using this all the time. I upload files from work, from my phone, etc. I wish the android app would allow the upload of more than just media files, but the website app version does all I need.
Summary: Would be even better if it was wireless and supported a printer also but it's wired only. Otherwise, I love the web and mobile app access (even when not on the same wireless network i.e. 3g cell reception).
Summary: I don't usually write product review, but after reading an overwhelming amount of negative reviews, I have to jump to Seagate's defense as this product is being slammed unfairly. I had ordered it from BestBuy just because it was $75 on their clearance website. 2 TB NAS for $75 is a good deal IMHO! When I read all these negative reviews, I was a bit apprehensive but to my joy all was unfounded.
