Summary: I purchased this to add storage to my home computer system. It connects directly to the router. It was immediately recognized by my computers as being on the network and available for storage.
Summary: Are you making a poor decision? Would Stephan Luczo (Seagate CEO) trust his data to one of these devices? All computer components die eventually. You just don’t expect it to happen right away.
Summary: Hooked this up and everything loaded fast but for some reason that Seagate couldn't figure out, I could not set up the remote access so I had to erase all the backups that I had done and start over again.
Totally Defeats the Purpose of Personal Cloud Storage with Stupid Privacy Invading Policies
12 May 2015
Summary: I was all hyped up to start using the benefits of the Cloud without the worries of my data being on someone else's HDD, nor being accessible by anyone else without my permission. This is definitely not the product for that, thanks to those stupid Privacy Policies.
Summary: A nice item and pretty easy to set up. However, I was a bit shocked how long it took to transfer a 288 MB file from my computer to the drive. Over an hour! I did not matter since I just let it do it's thing while I did other things.
Plenty of space and then some, quick set up, and discreet packaging. It's perfect!

Summary: We had this up and running within 5 minutes. No issues at all and runs like a dream. Tons of space, and the ability to access our files remotely has come in handy. It's not a total replacement for Dropbox or other sync apps, but it's perfect for the files you didn't expect to need.
Summary: Even after reading all of the negative reviews, I made the purchase and hoped that maybe all of the others were just too impatient to make this work. Well, after several HOURS of attempting to get this configured, I gave up.
Summary: I have gotten both the unit Seagate and WD. By far the WD is far better. The setups is simple, but always seem to have and issue with my pc. The Android app really is not much of an improvement. Can view folders separately, and can't upload to an individual folders.
Summary: Extremely disappointing. The Dashboard software will not run on my main PC. When I get Dashboard to run on my laptop, the instructions are very complicated and difficult to figure out how to even use this product.
