A great way to transfer files between wifi devices anywhere.
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.Read full review
Great product, easy to use, and excellent for long road trips!
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.
This is an excellnet product.
Great product. Easy to install and use with my laptop, tablet, and phone. highly recommend. Seagate has an excellent reputation in the undustry and their support website for this product is excellent too. it has a really portable form factor so it's easy to transport or slip in a briefcase or purse.
NOPE - read EVERYTHING before you spend your hard earned money!
They make this sound like such a "GREAT" thing, but it is not easy to use, the instructions are very vage and for the money - I give it 1 star. You have to have the RIGHT file type, the RIGHT everything for this to work - so the drag and drop- NOPE. Not impressed at all and was really hoping to use with my iPad so that I have everything with me. You have to convert things before you can use - so more money to buy more software to be able to use an already expensive piece of equipment. I am pretty savvy with these types of projects, but this one is in the drawer until I am ready to tackle it again. VERY FRUSTRATED!
What a Brick
I bought this for my Apple Mac Book Pro Laptop computer with the intention of it backing up my computer. The pro's are that it does not take up valuable USB space, until you need to save something which is contrary to why I bought a wireless, The con's is that it ONLY has a 5 hour batter life! To me it just does not back up my system the way I anticipated it would, the whole system on this drive. I am very dissapointed. Right now it is a brick that just lays there! I am back to my plug in Maxtor Hard drive.....No I would not buy this again.......
