A great way to transfer files between wifi devices anywhere.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I needed a way to share my media between my PC, tablet and android. The GoFlex Satellite has its own access point and battery so it can be carried around anywhere and connect to up to 3 devices at a time. It has internal sensors that will detect free fall and will temporarily shut the drive off before it hits the ground to avoid damaging its integrity. Transferring files is quite easy and can be done directly off the high speed USB 3.0 port, downloaded/uploaded through the browser on any WiFi mobile device or with a free app they have. I'm not sure but I think it can be accessed in windows explorer over WiFi as well. Speed is blazingly fast, especially through the USB 3.0.

Make sure your computer offers USB 3.0. Many 3.0 devices will not work on 2.0 ports. It is not required, but recommended.

Great product, easy to use, and excellent for long road trips!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This drive is fantastic for providing aural and visual entertainment while you are driving on the road. You can store hundreds of movies with it and thousands of CD's worth of music at the same time. Then your children, relatives, or friends can stream movies and videos to their iPads, iPhones, Laptops, or Android devices (basically anything with a web browser) while you are driving. Of course you could do the same thing at home to. And since it allows pass through internet browsing from your home network, you could listen to music from this drive while surfing the internet on your home wifi at the same time. Easy to use and access, I am very pleased with the product.

You need this if you depend on I Phone,I Pad Touch, I Pad, or other tablet

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is a great hard drive, I use it with a I Phone, I Pad touch, Mac Book and lap top computer. But I mainly use it with an IPAD 2, it is great to have the wireless ability to store and save large files. It has is invaluably to store movies, books, music, and other large files. As we all know 64mb is not alot of storage and 500 G is a needed addition.

Awesome product! Great value for the money and well worth it!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I purchased this to use along side my iPad so that I can have access to all my movies and music without using all of my storage. This is a great product and has not disappointed yet. I had other portable drives but none were wireless or accessible via my iPad when needed, this was a great decision and the price was right. Does not fail, perfect on the go and keeps my son busy on the road watching movies.

The Seagate Go Flex Satellite 500GB drive kept the promises made on the box

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Seagate Satellite was a good purchase as I was running out of space on my 16GB IPad. I was able to load all the pictures that I use frequently, I also loaded a few movies and I was able to quickly stram without utilizing an outside Internet source. The software was easy to install,furthermore, after registering the drive, I was able to upgrade the firmware, thus allowing me to permit more users to stream simultaneously. My Overall impression, a fairly priced item, that made good on its promises.

Must have for sharing content easily!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great product. Bought this to entertain family on the road that allows mulltiple content streaming. It's nice to have all of your music, movies, etc. at hand that can be shared with others without internet connections. Not much competition for this type of solution, but well made and so far worth it!
