I had been looking for a NAS solution for the home for a long time. I had three external USB drives that were shared off a main computer but whenever someone shut the box down the hard drives left too. Every review of the NAS Dongles talked about configuration issues and slow speeds and having to buy 3 dongles did not seem like fun either.

I took a chance on the Pogoplug and boy was I pleased. First, the manual fits on one page. Plug into the wall. Plug into the router. Go to [...] and activate. Upload files and start sharing. I have never plugged in a piece of internet enabled hardware and gotten it configured the first time until now. Even when using a notoriously closed ISP the hardware works perfectly. Now, when I get a request for a photo for a newsletter, I connect to my pogoplug and send it on. I had a large directory of Church pictures that our webmaster wanted to browse for the Church website. Just shared the directory and he did it himself. No getting a flash drive or burning a CD.

I've been using my Pogoplug for 6+ months now and I LOVE it.
I am using it on a 300mbps wireless-N network.
I am getting 25-30 MBps (yes..MEGABYTES)in data transfer across my gigabit LAN.
Here are some tips for faster data transfer.
If you have windows 7 , vista , or XP:
1: Disable autotuning: open CMD and type netsh interface set global autotuning=disabled.
2: Remove Remote Differential Compression: open control panel , go to programs and features , click "turn windows features on or off" , DE-SELECT remote differential compression.
3: Remove IPv6 from network properties: open control panel , network and internet , network and sharing center , change adapter settings , right click your adapter , choose properties , DE-SELECT IPv6.
4: Clear DNS cache: open CMD , type ipconfig/flushdns.

****access your Pogoplug from the web , download and install "Install Pogoplug On Your Computer" .
POW! , you should be good to go.

This works wonderfully on my LAN for MOVIES!

This is a known issue at Pogoplug. There is a forum post going back months. Some comments about the regular pogoplug using an old Kernal which does not support drives over 3TB. It's possible the pro version works (based on a post on the forum). Do not buy this if you want to put a 3TB drive on it. I have a HITACHI X-Series 3TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive 0S03092 and it is not recognized on any USB port. This was the reason I bought the pogoplug and it does not suit my purpose.

A known secret which Pogoplug does not share.

I just got this a week ago, so I haven't tinkered with it too much yet, but the setup was fairly painless. I plugged it into my router and plugged an external drive into the pogoplug. The light turned green and I went to the website; it brought up all of the files. I've had some trouble using it through the website. I can browse files, but it hasn't let me download anything yet. That could be an issue with my router, though. Like I said, I haven't tinkered with it too much to figure out where the problem is, but I'm thinking it might be a firewall issue.
There's even an app for Android and iOS operating systems, so I can access the files on the go. It's great because it lets me access my music on my phone from anywhere. In theory, it should let me access videos remotely, too, but I've been having problems with that. I can access them over my home network just fine, though, using the included software.
The software allows the pogoplug device to appear as a local hard drive on your computer (Windows or OSX). The device itself says it is capable of streaming pics, movies, and video to PS3, XBox360 and FreeAgent Theater+, though I've only tested the PS3 streaming. Again, it works great for music, but I couldn't get the video working.

From what I've seen, if you access the files remotely, you have to keep your ISP upload speed in mind. You can only download the files as fast as your home connection can upload them, so it will seem a bit slow, but it should be better than not accessing the files at all.

If I can figure out what's causing the video streaming and website issues, this will become an amazing device. Otherwise, it still works great as network attached storage.

I purchased the PonoPlug and converted it into a network music player using the instructions on the Vortexbox dot org user forum. Search for "Squeezebox replacement." [...]
It works perfectly and has replaced a Squeezebox in my music system. A highly recommended solution!

Bought the original Pogoplug and attached a Drobo for storage redundancy. - Very happy with the setup and performance.

The original died and I replaced it with a Pogoplug video. (which was recalled because they might burst into flames...) replaced with a PogoPlug Biz. Both the video and Biz versions 'forget' that there is a HD attached if they go ~ 2 - 4 days without being accessed. I have checked the Drobo for errors, rebooted the system as Pogo recommends until I'm blue in the face. No joy.

If you are thinking of using a redundant storage solution like Drobe with PogoPlug...DON'T
