The worst purchase ever

Summary: The advertisement is very misleading. This device does not work wirelessly with computers or Surface tablet. The leaftlet inside the package shows that it only works with ipad/ iphone (via applestore).
Summary: I got this product to work with both my Mac and my Iphone for its video/movie capability. Well I have tried for several days to find a way to copy just one of my DVD's to it without success. The Seagate site has made it as difficult as it can be to contact them for tech support. So, back it goes and I hope that this product report keeps others from buying a bad product.
Summary: Why would you send me to a give a review of the item when you just cancelled my order? You may have stellar products but I'll never know because between canceling my order without explanation and asking me to review the item from the order you just cancelled, I'll never shop here again.
Cannot rate it a zero - freezing and locking up is a known problem

Summary: I purchased drive and out of the box it began to have trouble. If you charge this and access it wireless concurrently it will lock up and the only rememdy is to let it drain down. Then you recharge the battery but you cannot charge it or it locks up again. I want a refund so I can get the Apple version. What a waste.
Summary: After spending a couple of hours trying to get this to work, I put it back in the box and it now resides on a shelf. Not worth the hassle to figure out why it doesn't work, not worth the hassle to send it back.
Summary: I have had the drive exactly five weeks, used it perhaps six times, and it has suddenly ceased to function. While connecting to its wifi signal is possible, the drive will no longer communicate with any of my six devices via Seagate's app or by simply using the browser. It no longer displays any indexes or files nor does it respond to attempts to access basic settings, i.e., restart, reset to factory settings, etc.
Summary: A week after purchasing the product the drive would stream two audio files and then disconnect Wi-Fi and freeze (the power button wouldn't turn it off). According to the advice of Seagate support I allowed the battery to run down and then recharged it three times, and each time the same result (two audio files streamed and then it froze). I also updated the firmware with the same result.
Summary: i have a windows (vista) computer, IMac, and Iphone 4 Down loading OS software causes major problems. Had to reinstall OS twice already Set up is terrible with very little instructions provided by seagate Thought this would be a great solution to store photos, movies, etc for all devices, but turned out to be a nightmare
Cutting edge technology...but bugs need to be worked out
happy customer, Amazon

Summary: Pro's: Streaming is lightning fast, I can scroll through HD movies virtually instantaneously just like an internally connected hard drive. This device is a permanent solution to space constraints with my tablet. transfer rate was zippy, comparable to most usb 2.0 external drives. I no longer have to worry about what content to take with me when I'm on the go. Also it's very nice to be able to rest in bed and stream tv shows directly to my tablet.
Summary: Very difficult time using the wireless system to hook to other playback devices. Uses it's own wireless connection instead of connecting to the wireless system in your home. Have to switch back and forth between the two with PS3 and other systems.
