Summary: Just received this product. So easy to set up with my IPad Air. Positives: Has a built in battery so if you are on the move you can still play your movies. Negatives: The Seagate software does play many file types, so just make sure you have VLC installed and access the video content through the local network, if needed. Great for view Microsoft Office documents too. Definatly, the way to go if you wanted to extend your storage space for your IPad.
Summary: Purchased this about a month back. Now my iPad will never run out of space. Only had the original firmware installed for about a week. It works well but the iPad app is a little weird. So I gave a custom firmware a try. Now I can stream via FTP to n-player which works flawlessly and is exactly what I was looking for. In my opinion the battery life could be better. 10 hours advertised is definitely wrong. If you are streaming an HD movie it'll maybe last 4-5 hours.
Excerpt: Very good piece of technology....some issues sometimes with a weak signal....but very good with your decices once you get it set up out of the box. I especially like to be able to take all of my work with me and to be able to access it wirelessly to get work done. If you are self-employed or an independent contractor, this is a great device to have..
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Portable, Quiet
Summary: Overall the unit works quite well. I have had good results with using it with both my AT&T Galaxy S III (Android 4.3) and Nexus 7 (Android 4.4) I would recommend it to friends/family looking for a device of this type. However, I do have a laundry list of minor irritants concerning the Seagate Media app. 1. I wish the app would default to the Seagate drive's root directory rather than whatever it is it defaults to. 2.
Excerpt: I have the Seagate Satellite 500GB, and it has worked great. Wanted more space to carry more files and the Wireless Plus was the answer. It is slightly thinner but weighs a bit more, it is sleeker then its predecessor. I didn't need to setup the app as I already had, but it connected quickly and allowed me to secure just as quickly.Files transferred quickly using a USB 3.0 connection.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Summary: We are a road traveling family. Anywhere from the Carolina's to Maine, we hop in the family wagon, and take a road trip. When it was just me and my wife, local radio and talk stations or just good ol' conversation was enough to keep us entertained. Now with two young children, our road trips at times have been challenging. Our vehicles do not have an entertainment package, but our girls do have some tablets that they use for educational purposes when home.

Summary: Pros: This product is really well done. Device works very well out of the box. A full TB of storage available to my iPad for extra storage. I can put all the movies I own on this thing, so its great for road trips with the kids! The Seagate media app is good enough for my purposes. Internet connection sharing through this device works well, once the connection to the external wifi is established.
Summary: Right out of the block, I want to be clear that I admire the SEAGATE WIRELESS PLUS and what it promises: 1TB of battery-powered WiFi goodness. But there are a number of strings attached to that promise, and users should know about them in advance. First, the SEAGATE WIRELESS PLUS does seem to work as advertised. I was able to stream 4 720p shows that I had encoded for iPads to 4 different devices simultaneously.
