Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB
1 May 2013
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. We're comparing the Seagate's performance against the Corsair Voyager Air, a super-fast USB stick from Corsair, and a 2TB WD My Passport USB 3.0 external drive. Absolute speed is largely governed by the quality of the drive inside.
Conclusion: Think of the Seagate Wireless Plus wireless media hard drive as a streaming photo, video, and music library for your family's phones, tablets, and laptops.
Pros: Caches media lists. Responds faster than previous iterations. USM connector. Large capaicty wireless storage for iOS devices, Kindle Fire, and Android. Passes Internet through. Works with some smart TVs and DLNA devices. Can use drag and drop or Media Sync app. Works with browsers in laptops and desktops.
Cons: Easily misplaced USM port cover. Some videos play in browser, some in the Seagate Media app.
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 same or more storage capacity.
Pros: Speedy over USB 3.0 interface, Allows you to connect wirelessly to drive and Web at same time, Supports DLNA streaming
Cons: Slow Wi-Fi speeds, Web interface lacks advanced features, No built-in user manual, Limited streaming connections supported
This wireless hard drive is perfect if you want to stream media content to an Android or iOS device

Conclusion: O Seagate Wireless Plus é uma boa opção para quem precisa armazenar e transportar grandes quantidades de arquivos. A conexão via Wi-Fi não é muito rápida, fato que é compensado pela conexão via USB 3.0. A transmissão em streaming tem boa qualidade e acontece sem qualquer travamento. A falta de compatibilidade com alguns formatos populares de vídeo pode decepecionar e o preço de R$ 699 pode assustar.
Pros: Mobilidade;, Conexão via Wi-Fi;, Velocidade na USB 3.0.
