Review – Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB mobile storage device
13 November 2013
Excerpt: Most of us have no problem creating and saving data. Movies, music, word processing, images - you name it, and we probably have it . The problem is how to keep all that data organized, how to find it when we need it, and how to share the data.
Conclusion: Acting as a regular hard drive, we tasked it to run the default AS SSD sequential read/write test and to move a 3.35GB folder containing 2,087 files (Windows 8 USB install, incidentally) to-and-fro a Samsung 830 SSD in the host PC.
Excerpt: Media on the go, that’s the continued direction that mobile devices are heading. Whether it is a smartphone, a tablet, netbook, etc…, being able to enjoy media on the go is one of the many benefits these devices provide.
Conclusion: So, we’re a bit torn. The Wireless Plus only justifies its premium price if you use it as a streamer of media content. Otherwise, if you’re just using this device tethered to a laptop or desktop most of the time, you’re better off sticking to a simple, much cheaper USB 3.0-friendly device with the...
Pros: Speedy over USB 3.0 interface, Allows you to connect wirelessly to drive and Web at same time, Supports DLNA streaming

Cons: App won't play MKV or AVI files on either Android or iOS devices, Mac users have to install NTFS driver, Battery life is a bit shorter than advertised, The price tag—$200 is rather steep for a commodity product
Excerpt: With the debut of the Wireless Plus at CES this past January, I've been eagerly awaiting my shot at testing out Seagate's brand new wireless media hard drive. After ditching my MacBook Air – and all of it's storage – for the iPad, having portable storage on the go is a must.
Summary: On a recent family trip across the country, the kids each had a tablet to keep them occupied. Every night, when we'd stop it would be time to load new videos to the tablets. The Seagate Wireless Plus would have saved time and headaches allowing all the videos to be loaded to it and letting the kids...
