It's easy to setup. The CD came with it does not work for Win8.1. I have to download the software from seagate. Actually I set it up without installing software. But I had problem. Every time I boot the PC, I have to re-enter user name and pd to login to the mapped drive. I don't know how to fix it. So finally I installed the software.

The transfer speed is abut 35MB/s. My Iomega NAS is less than 10MB/s.

According to Seagate customer service, this unit does not work with non-goFlex drives. I tried to use a Toshiba external usb drive, as I was led to believe any drive was compatible, but it would not recognize the drive...which worked fine plugged in to any computer, and in fact was visible (with all my files) on seagate's webpage (which I did NOT want!). Seagate told me the reason it would not recognize my drive is because it works only with their goFlex drives. So, wah.

I'm giving it one star only because the seller's page fails to include this rather critical, need-to-know information. I'm returning it, and certainly don't expect to pay any return shipping. If the return goes well, I'll revisit and raise it a star.

I purchased this device to set up a cheap NAS drive (access my data from anywhere), and to have a local drive at home where I can access any of my movies and music and backup data. I used a Western Digital 1TB red NAS disk (WD 10EFRX) with this docking station

Pro's
a) Not expensive
b) In theory it works (tested with windows 7/8 and Android phone)
c) You can share data with other people. Simply provide a logon ID in the admin setup.
d) Good for local backups
e) works with Android phone, but too slow

Cons
a) Seagate proprietary software (windows only)
b) $10 fee to open up all features
c) Streaming does not work with Seagate browser login software. Has some d) significant issues, ie will not read most music or movie formats. The software does not allow the user to pick the default streaming program.You can stream video and music if you use a networked computer and your softwar ie potplayer or media monkey.

d) Phone application is way to slow . Forget this feature unless you have lots of patience

Early days of testing with windows 7 and an Android phone. My intention is to test this hardware with Linux and open source software.

The product would be great if the software worked correctly "Goflex home" Check out the android reviews for the "Goflex" application" . NOT good. !!!

Conclusion: Good hardware
Bad Software (I fail to understand how corporate America seems content to sell products that do not function as advertised.)

Update to Update

I had to search the goflex web site to find the Windows 8 application. The default download seemed to install the Win 7 app on my win 8 computer !!

1) The bottom line.

It works fine with XP, 7, Linux Mint KDE, and Mac computers, all in the LAN network, tested all of them and works good. It was detected very easy by time machine and windows backup (tried both with success). My primary use is for photo backup and stream movies to my Roku wirelessly. It does the job fine.

It only sucks that you have to open an account with seagate to activate it. Sometimes I can get my files remotely with my android, others it tells me that the goflex is offline, which I know it isn't, and the fact that I can't find a case for my hard drive.

But for local sharing it works just fine. The hard drives goes to sleep when not in use, so after that it takes a few seconds to start again.

It's been almost a year since I've had it with no problems with two hard drives attached.

I thought I would give this product a try. Don't bother if you want to stream video or music or access files quickly. As the previous reviews state - this product sucks! Then the company charged me $9.00 to ship this crappy product back.

Read the negative reviews and ignore the positive reviews.
