Enter the GoFlex Satellite portable hard drive extraordinaire, a “NAS” of a different color. Here’s a closer look. Design Of course in the looks department, it doesn’t quite set a new standard, not that there’s a whole lot one can do with the design of a hard drive.

  • Excerpt: Having an external drive is always a good thing.

Seagate GoFlex Satellite review

23 May 2011
  • Summary: Ultimately, the Seagate GoFlex Satellite is the first of what I expect to be many wireless hard drives designed to help tablet users get and share content from their PCs to their slates. The idea is clever, but the implementation leaves much to be desired. For now, this gadget is best left to those people who need to transport lots of video to a tablet, and who aren't concerned about digging through arcane file names and contending with glitches and poor app design.

Seagate Goflex Satellite 500GB hard drive

14 April 2014
  • Conclusion: A very useful portable hard drive with 500GB of space, the Goflex Satellite is a good investment for users who want to watch multimedia content on the move. Although there is WPA security to help ensure WiFi transmissions are not intercepted, the lack of on-board encryption is a concern. If the device should be lost, there is nothing to prevent data being accessed over USB, unless users take precautions.
  • Pros: Small and portable, WPA security, simple configuration, good battery life.
  • Cons: Streaming limited to three devices, no WiFi bridging option., No on-board encryption.
