Easy to use, but unreliable

Jim, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: This drive was easy to use and set up, but failed (failed to boot) after about four months. Read (too late) that over heating and burning out seems to be a problem for these.
  • Pros: Easy to Use
  • Cons: unreliable

Read the Reviews... Transfer Speed is unbelievably slow.

ken l, Amazon
1 October 2014
  • Summary: Read the Reviews... Transfer Speed is unbelievably slow. 98gb transfer is estimated at 150 hours. I'm trying to stream music from it to another computer and it hiccups every 5 secs regularly. I have it connected with ethernet through a router. I can transfer files from one computer to another super fast, but transferring to this device is unbelievably slow. I disregarded the reviews because I am fairly tech savy having built networks and computers.

No Good Experience

Pete, Office Depot
6 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Hard to set up, hard to recognize, inconsistent working, support poor at best, crashed in less than a year. There is an option to have a third party recover your data (they won't tell you) which should be less than $500.

Had high hopes, but was terribly disappointed so I returned it

NSain1, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to store files to share over the cloud and access anywhere as it states. First uploading is an absolute nightmare. Not only is the application clunky...it is terribly slow. I had VERY high hopes for this because I wanted my own 'cloud'. Very good concept, but terrible interface and functionality.

Stick with Dropbox. The technology just isn't there yet.

Jason Carnell, Amazon
30 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought this device thinking it'd be a great alternative to dropbox and Google Drive and, in the long run, cheaper too. Sadly, I was mistaken. First off, getting it set up is NOT easy. Secondly, it's horribly slow for, both, uploads and downloads. It was suggested that maybe my Wifi was just slow, but I could access files more quickly on dropbox (which is a friggin' remote server) than I could on this Wifi storage device while sitting in my own house.

Blazing Fast Bulk Copying And 4T Works Great With Ipad

CLC, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: I just received my Seagate Central 4TB (SC) today, and wanted to post a preliminary review of how fast it was to copy bulk video files to it. I've learned that Amazon reviews have to be looked at with a more critical eye to the most recent first, as responsive manufacturers often will keep updating their product/software through the life of the product.
