fine as a stand alone, terrible with portable drive

DenZ, Amazon
2 March 2012
  • Summary: I have had this unit for over a year and have the latest firmware. Neutral: While the interface is a bit clunky it is logically organized and as is good as it can get w/o keyboard. Good: Plays almost everything. Connects to netflix, but at this point what doesn't?

Not simple to use

Thomas Paul, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: I have to confess that I am not a network expert or even an expert on using this kind of hardware but I was hoping I wouldn't have to be. The first problem is that it doesn't come with a lot of things I didn't realize it needed like wi-fi and even a small hard drive.

fine drive reader, but netflix is awful

Nicholas Eric vonKlock, Amazon
22 August 2011
  • Summary: As a drive reader/player, this device is excellent! However, if you're looking for a Netflix player, stick with your Wii or computer/iPad. Set up for Netflix is slow and it takes an entire day to actually register and have your account recognized.

Slow and Did NOT Come With Ethernet Cable

SciFiChick, Amazon
22 August 2011
  • Summary: The Seagate GoFlex TV HD Media Playing Device is a convenient little box that makes it easier to connect to the internet or your personal computer and view everything from your TV. You can view movies, music, photos, and more from your tv, just by connecting to the internet.

Plays anything, random lock ups

B-Tine, Amazon
19 August 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Plays anything, at least so far. Small footprint, some Go flex HDDs will dock. Easy set up. Excellent HD video picture play with .mts files. Cons: Random lock ups when running jpegs from a thumb drive. I just loaded the firmware update, perhaps it is a fix?

Early review of the GoFlex TV

Winkster, Amazon
13 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this unit about a week ago. I connected it to an Airport Express via an ethernet cable. The connection was easy to setup and I could access and play Netflix movies. The USB connection works well to play movies from a USB drive.

Best for all types of media

Ima Nonymous, Amazon
27 July 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this product because I was interested in playing all sorts of media files with it. From Xvid to MKV and everything in between. I've never tried to playback a format that wouldn't work with the Seagate. Good: Fast easy initial setup. It's nice to have to have 2 USB ports.

Versatile but old model is better

NJV, Amazon
2 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought one of these after I have been using the older model (Seagate Theater Plus) for a while and I need a second box for my home office. It has identical firmware version number and user interface. Here're the highlights. - Very versatile and can play all sorts of media format.

Mostly OK

Ronald Spinks, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying this is a FORMAT friendly device . IT basically will play any video type file I have on my GOFLEX drive so that is a winner and the main reason I bought the device . My second reason was because I could slap my drive right in there with out using the USB cable .

Quirky, remote and unit slow to respond...Freezes often.

Fine Art "Art*nstuff", Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: The unit is quirky, such as the remote and unit are slow to respond, and the unit freezes quite often. Roku is better choice for streaming videos from online, and its selection of services is better with Amazon's Video O Demand, etc.
