Summary: First, I am not a tech type person, but I can follow directions. I setup the drive and connected via the Seagate Wireless App without problem for the first month I had this drive. I streamed music and video, and read/saved several documents via the Seagate App onto my iPad and also my Android phone. Both allowed me to connect without problem via wifi and upload/download and stream material as needed.
Excerpt: I bought to save pictures from sd card via ipad... probably is my fault but the software doesn't permit to change folders and destination when using wi-fi connection. the wi-fi isn't fast enough to view films on ipad from disk... the battery life is enough but really short. I hope in a software improvement for ipad...
Only good for media on wifi, has connection problems

Summary: Only images, video or audio files can be accessed by Wi-Fi. (There is a download for sale online that someone made to reprogram it to work for any files on Wi-Fi). Other files types are only accessible when attached by USB. It's designed so Wi-Fi doesn't work when connected by USB. Its media user interface is very slow and clunky. Not well thought out at all. Folders with lots of files take a extremily long time to display and it has very few settings options.
Summary: I was able to get it working with my iPad 4 with the sample files, music and video, but could not load my own and get it to work. I worked with seagate support to no avail. As usual with Amazon returning was a breeze. Don't expect plug and play. I love the idea and will keep watching for new versions.
TO MUCH HASSLE AND REQUIRES ADDITIONAL APPS AND SOFTWARE DOWNLOADS TO BE COMPATIBLE

Summary: At first this product seams brilliant, but the more you dig deeper into its functions and features you realise that it can be very frustrating and long winded. Good points: * Yes it is handy as a wireless point when kids want to access internet say on long journey's in car * Yes its pretty simple to connect to other laptops and mobile devices * Yes the memory 1TB is more than enough and fast enough using the 3.0 data point * Yes you can connect smart TV and stream films,...
Lazy and dysfunctional software support for neat-idea hardware.

Summary: I read a lot of poor reviews of this product but wanted it to work so badly that I still took the gamble on it. To try and be as succinct as possible, the hardware, which is a great idea, is crippled by under developed and badly implemented software. This hard drive is effectively a massive capacity iPod but its poor user interface and embarrassing user-experience just highlights just how great iOS is and that to deliver a sub-standard software implementation for such a...
Summary: I bought this for viewing photos and videos on an Ipad 4. I could easily use videos and photos that were transferred direct to the ipad from my camera but of course was rapidly running out of space. This seemed to offer a good solution and it is definitely a step in the right direction. Pros: Gives a lot of storage space, beat the Apple storage scrooge policy!
Summary: I purchased this drive as I have a large library of video and music painstakingly created from my DVD collection. What a great idea having an extension of the very limited memory of a tablet device. The reality is some what different, the battery life after only a weeks use is 3 hours at best. Whilst streaming to my IPAD I find I have to reboot the device a number of times as the wifi just dies (normally just at the good bit).

Summary: Пользуюсь более месяца. Прошивка последняя, 2.2. Проблем с подключением к образуемой им сети Seagate WiFi других устройств домашней сети нет, но скорость низкая. О 802.11n и речи нет. Родную локальную сеть WiFi вырубает и не видит ее в списке доступных сетей в Seagate Media (хотя возможно, дело в настройках моего роутера, буду проверять).
Pros: Достоинства: не увидел Сырой девайс, неясно зачем сделан.Очень слабый WiF, иногда даже в полуметре не берет. О 802.11n и речи нет. Постоянно зависает намертво через 3-5 минут независимо от просматриваемого контента. Комп его не всегда видит даже через USB. Проблемы не только мои - посмотрите отзывы хотя бы на ян-маркете.
