Ratings and Reviews
Seagate Wireless Plus = AWESOME!
Top notch built quality. To be able to stream all of my media files from this device (1TB) is awesome! No more carrying around my 15" MBP on my trips, and no more limited syncing on my iPad or iPhone! Well, the App on the other hand needs a few improvements though, not to mention the lack of a comprehensive setup instructions. BTW, if you have a very large media compilation like me, prepare for a long wait before you can access the drive again, since it will take a while to index all your media files.
UPDATE: Down to 4 Stars! The firmware is still really buggy and slow, and every time I connect it to the power charger it freezes and you really have to reset the unit.
UPDATE2: I finally decided returning the unit to Seagate for replacement, because of the frequent disconnection and freezing issues. Looking forward for the replacement! Still 4 stars, still an awesome product!
UPDATE3: It finally arrived! Everything's working as it should be (the firmware is still buggy though- freezes once in a while). BTW, DO NOT REFORMAT THE DRIVE! If you made this mistake, use NTFS format in Windows and make sure it's set to Master Boot Record (MBR) do a check disk if the unit crashes (which will eventually happen) just to make sure.
CONCLUSION: This is the best wireless back up solution to beat. It's portable, connects to wifi as a hotspot, and does not rely on a router to work. It works but I won't recommend it for now.
Great product, horrible app
I love the seagate go flex satellite. I had no problems getting my media onto the device or accessing the wifi. I simply drag and drop my itunes folder. Then came the interface. It is opening directory after directory to get the data you want. Then you find it doesn't open ePub files which are supported by the ipad They are there, but you can't open them. So your books can't be used. Then you try music. Again you open music folder, artist folder, album folder, and finally select the song. There are no playlist so you have to search out a song, wait for it to end, and then search another song. No shuffle. Cant search new song until one that is playing has ended Music is rendered unusable unless you really want to hear one song. I had no issue with video playback. It streamed perfectly. To get to a video it is again opening folder after folder. There is no apparent organization. There is no album artwork for music or video. Since i dropped in my itunes folder I was hoping it would be organized and used in a similar fashion as it is on my ipad. I was greatly disappointed. It takes away the entire experiencing you are used to having on your iPad and turns it into folder opening, poor organization, and horrible presentation. This is a five star product with a 2 star at best app. I want to like this product so bad, but I can't believe how bad the interface is. I hope seagate updates the app so it can be the must have device it should be.
I'm so glad I purchased the Wireless Plus. This is so cool! There's obviously very limited space on my iPad and iPhone, and I was looking to replace my old external (it started acting funny so I got scared I'd lose my stuff - still works though, just wanted peace of mind). Anyways, I'm a music freak. My iTunes library is perfect as I went through every single song added the "official" track numbers, album art, and all that good stuff. I also made sure all spelling, grammar, punctuation, and capitalizations were correct. I'm a neat freak so I wanted everything to be 100% uniform when I back it up. I highlighted my entire library in iTunes and dragged it to the external. It was fairly fast (less than 1.5 hour for 65gb). At first it listed only songs in random order. A few mins later, everything was indexed and sorted out! Perfect! Now everything looks great, works well, and sounds great! It did what I had hoped it'd do very quickly. Smooth streaming with no interruptions!
1 concern is that my iPhone connected to it automatically even though I set a password. I was able to play songs with no password approval. Maybe it needed to be reset after I set the password, who knows. I'm going to test this tomorrow to see if the password does work using a Kindle or family member's phone.
