Seagate Wireless Plus External Hard Drive

iLounge
21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Currently available in a 1-Terabyte capacity—as much storage as the hard disks inside current iMacs—Wireless Plus is roughly the same size as G-Connect: at 3.5” wide, 5” deep and 0.7” tall, it’s actually a bit smaller in two dimensions and less than 0.1” wider. Seagate achieves this feat with a smart trick; while G-Technology built an Ethernet port and micro-USB connector directly into G-Connect, Seagate ends Wireless Plus’s back with a black plastic cap that pops open...

Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB

HEXUS
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.

Seagate Wireless Plus Review

thinkdigit.com
18 April 2013
  • Summary: The Seagate Wireless Plus is an ideal device for you, if you think that the 32GB or 64GB maximum storage limit on your smartphone or tablet is just not enough and you want to carry your whole library along. It is great for content creators and travelling professionals. Its ability to connect multiple devices, share internet connections and ease of use work is in its favour. Battery life is also pretty decent and it can be a great companion on long journeys.
  • Pros: Great build quality, Easy to use, Decent battery life, Fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds
  • Cons: Takes 3-4 tries to connect to your device despite Seagate access point being recognized, Native Seagate Media app does not support all movie formats, Range is not quite great

  • 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

Seagate Wireless Plus

LAPTOP Magazine
28 January 2013
  • Summary: With the Wireless Plus, Seagate has resolved every issue we had with its original wireless hard drive. Best of all, it doubled the storage, while keeping the price at $199. While the Patriot Gauntlet 320 is certainly capable, Seagate's Wireless Plus lasts longer on a charge, offers more than twice the storage for just $40 more, and has a more intuitive and robust app. If you're looking to take all of your content with you, the Wireless Plus is the way to go.
  • Pros: Intuitive app, Can stream content from devices and be online at same time, Apple Airplay compatible, Streaming to Samsung Smart TVs coming soon
  • Cons: Needs better battery life indicator, Below-average USB 3.0 transfer speeds

  • Excerpt: I love my iPad, but I made the mistake of buying a 16GB model—that’s not enough storage for all my apps, home videos, movies, TV shows, photos, and documents. I can rely on cloud storage, but since my iPad is Wi-Fi only, I like having extra local storage. I’ve been using a Kensington Wi-Drive, but it has its limitations.
