Review: Seagate GoFlex Satellite

13 November 2011
  • Excerpt: UPDATE: This review was updated in October 2012 to reflect a newer firmware version that enables pass-through mode (see below). This drive is made specifically to serve your mobile fix, and will be of particular interest to iPad owners.
  • Pros: A go-anywhere “real” storage device built for iPad, iPhone and Android. USB 3.0. 3-year warranty. Internal Wi-Fi lets three different people connect to the drive at once. Juice up the six-hour Lithium-ion battery over USB, or with a car charger. Makes you look smart for going with the 8GB tablet ...
  • Cons: Formatted NTFS, so while Windows users can plug and play, Mac users will need to load some utilities first.

Also, the GoFlex works with Android devices, a feature the Wi-Drive lacks.

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.
  • 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.
