Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use from a laptop or desktop, however it is supposed to be easily compatible with an iPad/iPod/iPhone and I am still struggling to set this aspect up. The seagate firmware update instructions are for the other hard drives as it is impossible (as far as I can see) to copy the firmware without putting it into a file but if you put it in a file it won't run! If this problem was easier to solve I wouldn't hesitate to give it 5 stars but as I'd bought it specifically to run with my iPad I am a little disappointed that I now appear to have to wait until Seagate issue an actual hardware update before I can use it to its fullest potential :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely happy with my purchase The unit worked as expected. Connected it to my Router and my iMac (Snow Leopard) found it and it connected with passwords. My Panasonic TV with Viera Link system can "see" some of the the folders but I have not had the time to put any content into them yet The delivery was great The unit arrived the following day! To the isle of Man too, wish more suppliers could do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to stay loyal to Seagate as I already have two of there drives running a USB stand alone 1TB and a 500GB. So I wanted a network drive saw the great price on this and so I bought it. Setting up was easy phone app and iPad app both work fine and easy just remember your input details to log in to the app e.t.c. I copied 400GB of data from my 1TB which took about 25.5 Hours to complete but had no problems at all, now the 500GB is plugged in the the Nw 2TB and works great together. One thing is as yet I can't see the 500GB USB drive through the app. Not much of an issue as its a non user photo backup. Ace bit of kit stop reading and go buy one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truely amazing product. A 2TB networked drive for the price. unbelievable. T took long time to load 2TB of data to it. Dont try and do anything else with the drive while you are loading all this. Just leave it for a few nights. You need to set up a profile for each computer accessing it. Aafter doing that it just works, even through my wireless network as well. No more problems with accessing music, movies, files all round the house and even the garden. Dont hesitate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought this hoping to use it to back up the music and video files from my PC so I could listen to/view them from my iPhone and iPad, the only problem been it only seems to support limited video file types and only ones less then 2gb so 99% of the video files mostly .mp4's just give an 'unsupported file format error' tried various things like formatting it and converting files which did work in some cases, but it would of taken weeks to convert my whole library, if getting it to use for apple devices read the reviews for the seagate app before purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and get running. sharing over the internet is okay. DLNA is another matter. there is no refresh for the DLNA files. media player (tv) shows deleted files. added files and folders do not show on TV menu, but do show on PC. Avoid if you want to use this for DLNA media player units.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have read all the other comments about this product and thought I would submit a review about the product. If you have used enterprise NAS' before or even a semi decent NAS avoid this. The built in webserver for managing the device is very simple and I wouldn't even bother installing the seagate backup software. You can only use the 3 present UNC shares on the device which have stupid names:- GoFlex Home Private GoFlex Home Public GoFlex Backup You cannot create any new physical shares on this device. It has no features to be able to join an AD domain (Yes I run a domain at home) Out of the 3 NAS boxes I have at home this has the slowest read/write speed of any of them and one is 2 years old. My advice would be if your looking for a decent NAS for home use with some added features then look around. I will more than likely be returning this product and exchanging it for something else.
