Excerpt: This is great for using as an external storage drive, but you cannot (says so on the box) use it for time machine back-up. It comes formatted for Windows/PC, but the install was still easy on a Mac.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Excerpt: I bought this HD to back-up photos when I travel with an Adroid tablet. My intention was to copy the photos from an usb device attached to the tablet for the Wireless HD. It isn´t possible, neither from the ext sd card if you have one in your tablet. You can copy only from the tablet´s main memory.
Summary: Getting to grips with this supposedly simple device has been frustrating. I bought the Seagate Wireless Plus to accompany me on an overseas trip, with the express purpose of acting as a photo back-up device.
Summary: Over the years I've owned several Seagate products, including a few drives from their GoFlex line. While some products worked very well, others had its share of hiccups. When I received this item, I initially thought -- I've got plenty of portable and external HDs, why would I need this?
Summary: This device works really well. I loaded loads of video, all my music tracks, 10,000 ebooks and 26,500 photos and that took less than half the space. I used it on my Galaxy Note 3, on my Kindle Fire HD, on an ASUS Transformer Prime TF201, and on an ASUS MemoPad and all worked well.
Summary: I had more expectations when I was buying it. Sure the storing capacity is huge, but it lacks of stand alone power, especially when it is connected through a local wifi. I want to try having it plugged all the time but I don't know if this is going to affect the battery life.
Summary: This review is based on around 9 months of use. I bought the Seagate Wireless Plus mainly for when we're travelling. The family all have smart devices of some description (ipads, iphones, android tablets etc) and they can't store all the films we may want to watch while we're away.
