Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD Media Player Review

PCStats
28 November 2013
  • Summary: Seagate's GoFlex TV HD is a media player with network connectivity and hard drive dock. The pint-sized black box fits unobtrusively in a living room environment - unlike a full sized Media PC - and the GoFlex TV HD's on screen controls are simple to navigate via the infrared remote control. Full size media PCs often need a keyboard and mouse to be useful, having cooling fans that make a lot of noise and take up too much space...

Seagate GoFlex TV HD Media Player Review

About.com
20 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Seagate's GoFlex TV has changed little from its previous incarnation -- the FreeAgent Theater+ network media player. It has the same menu and features. The only change is the redesign of the player's housing. Now it is a small rectangular unit with a door that opens to accommodate an optional Seagate GoFlex portable hard drive. The GoFlex drive can sync with your computer's media library and be docked to the GoFlex TV using a SATA connection.

  • Summary: The inclusion of Netflix and other online-streaming options make the FreeAgent GoFlex TV a compelling option for file hoarders who also want access to cloud-based media.
  • Cons: No built-in Wi-Fi (wireless option costs an extra $50); Blu-ray players with similar features are available for not much more money; the drive sticks out when installed; Seagate's 1TB GoFlex drive doesn't fit inside the device; no Pandora streaming.

  • Summary: The GoFlex TV is priced at around Rs. 6,900 which we felt was a brilliant price point for a feature rich HD media player. It is ideal for movie enthusiasts who have a drive full of movies across file formats, and intend watching it on big screens. The internet streaming options will leave net junkies happy.
  • Pros: Easy setup, Plays most of audio and video file formats, Supports over 15 different types of internet video feeds, Economically priced
  • Cons: No file operations allowed ie. copy, move, paste etc., User unfriendly online keyboard

Seagate FreeAgent® GoFlex™ TV HD Media Player Review

The Gadgeteer
24 September 2010
  • Excerpt: I’ve read reviews on The Gadgeteer for media players that hook up with your TV or home theater setup and let you view your home videos, pictures, movies, and even play your music files.  I’ve always been interested in them, but I’ve never had one of these devices.  I had looked into an Apple TV some months back, but they didn’t do HD.  I liked the idea of the Apple TV because of the easy access to movies I could rent or buy for the device.
  • Pros: Easy setup, Streaming, HD playback works flawlessly, Easy to access content from hard drives, USB flash drives, and cameras, Netflix access is easy and works perfectly
  • Cons: Quick Start Guide steps include installing software that wasn't included nor needed, Can't sign in to your Flickr account, No HDMI cable included, Home screen options are a bit redundant

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD Media Player

  • Summary: After spending a few weeks with the FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD media player, I can say that this is one product I would highly recommend to anyone in the market for such a device. Having previously used Apple TV exclusively, I would say that in some respects this is a much better product. Because the Apple TV is linked to iTunes, you're limited in how the content must be formatted.
  • Pros: » Easy to transfer files via included software, » Comes with all the cables you'd need for basic setup, » Can play everything from .vob files, to iTunes content, to .avi and .mwv, » Streaming media channels are nice
  • Cons: » Doesn't include Wi-Fi adapter (a $50 extra) or have on-board Wi-Fi, » HDMI cable not included

9 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Seagate has phased out its FreeAgent Theater line and is replacing it with the new GoFlex TV 1080p HD media player. The GoFlex TV maintains a consistent branding with Seagate’s new GoFlex series of external storage products, which, as you probably guessed, has replaced the old FreeAgent series.
