Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product but slow transfer rate. I have had this item for about 6 months now and i am very happy with it, we have 4 smart TV's altogether in our house and all our movies and kids stuff are stored on this device and can be watched from any tv in the house all at the same time, so we can watch one program in one room and watch another program in the other room all from this drive. I have installed CAT 6 to all the tvs so as to not slow our WIFI down but have tested this box to the extreme by viewing 4 different HD movies on all 4 tvs without any buffering problems whatsoever. As per some other reviews the unit has a slow transfer rate, it took over 24 hours to transfer 300Gb from my mac to this device via WIFI but did not seem any quicker using a network cable. As long as your not in a rush i suppose it doesnt matter. Also make sure every time you add a film or something to the device you need to do a restart otherwise some will appear to be missing. All in all a good purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from slow transfer rate Very slow transfer rate to the extent that it takes days to backup a sensible amount of information. When you set it to do a frequent backup, it seems to pick and choose what it wants to backup when and misses out the rest, and it never deletes anything just keeps adding more and more to its drive until its full then it stops working.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from slow to upload This drive lacks a direct USB interface to upload data. copying films to the device over wifi is very time consuming.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointing for a Seagate product. I had high hopes for this product. For access to a central store via wifi from a basic standpoint... it works. Want it to do anything else it promises then prepare for frustration, impatience and annoyance. Cannot get a Windows 7 machine to change user. The backup etc. software is wholly incapable of discovering the drive on my Win7 desktop or Win8.1 laptop. I cannot log in to any private account on the laptop. File transfer is painfully slow if you already have plenty of data to shift over. The USB port is purely to attach additional storage - cannot directly connect to a computer. If I hadn't already invested 17 hours transferring data I would have taken it back. The DLNA side of things works with a PS3... to a point - some file formats unsupported which have worked via other methods. Remote access via web seems to work but is a little awkward to use. I suppose for the money it's not bad for a 2TB network drive although if I was spending my money again I'd look at a different product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far Got this from mapplins just after Xmas after hearing some bad reviews on other sites and forums I'm very happy easy to setup the transfer speeds are good and have not had a problem so far plus the Facebook feature is great and being able to add another hard drive to it through usb is also great thinking of adding an ssd drive can't complain at the price

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great under Windows 7 frustrating under Windows 10 Had one of these for over a year and it worked well with Windows 7, but after upgrading to Windows 10 I am continually denied permission or told the network is not present, even though the drive shows up in the list. I can get it working by editing the registry, but then on a subsequent restart it won't allow me access again. Don't buy if you use windows 10, if you have one don't upgrade to Windows 10.

Can I plug this directly into my computer to transfer files? I.e. without being connected to the router, using it like a traditional hard drive?
