Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

Pogoplug takes over and backs up your data on the hard drive.
SamChuck
The mobile apps for iPhone and Android are horrendous as it takes 2 to 3 days on a LAN to reindex your media when you add new songs or videos.
Bryan D. Uslick
Don't wast your money, and more importantly, don't wast your time trying to get this thing to work.

If you are unlucky enough to receive a defective Pogoplug unit, you're stuck. Write it off. Forget it.

Pogoplug technical support's purpose is to stall until the warranty runs out. After 5 days of running me and my computer around with reloads, remote tests, and other busywork, nothing was resolved. The support people, Gali and Fiana in particular, have impeccable manners, great patience, pleasant correspondence styles, and no competence whatsoever. They simply ignore whatever they don't want to deal with. Repeated ALL CAPS messages will get them to admit that you exist.

My unit simply would not let my username online. No one else's either. I tried my own remedies for 2 days before contacting tech "service." When I did, they spent 5 days of email ping pong wasting my time. Since they are paid to stall, their time was well spent. I also bought the Premium software (the free version is actually crippleware) which I am stuck with now. No use for it. No refund.

It's also possible that a diagnostic procedure that Pogoplug uploaded to my computer conflicted with some of my non-pogo applications. If you notice hidden .ceid shortcuts on your desktop, you may be affected too. My video editor (normally rock-solid) would not work at all until I uninstalled the "Premium" software & manually removed all "pogoplug" keys from the registry.

I should have been suspicious about a company that refused for months to recall an earlier model, hundreds of which caught fire.

This product is simply unreliable. At least 50% of the time, my drives were not available online (through the PogoPlug portal) and I had to return home and reset the drives and the unit. It simply cannot be relied upon to have your files there when you need them. Don't waste your money. (I'm not mentioning how slow it was WHEN it worked and the fact that some drives do no support the use of pogoplug- which I found out later AFTER my purchase of the unit).

Installing the Pogoplug is a breeze. The Windows driver works quite well, mapping a virtual drive to the Plug. The web UI is so simple to use. What I find rather disappointing is that:

1. It's terribly slow. Best used for viewing photos. Forget about watching videos or even streaming music.
2. No improved performance in LAN: as slow as access from the Net. The Plug is not recognisable as a SAMBA device within the local network, meaning you can't use it as a home archive.
3. Barebones support on Android: it just feels rough.

Overall comments: though the price is good and the cloud service it claims generally works, it's more of a toy than to be taken seriously.

The concept of this thing is great: create your own "personal cloud" and access your data and entertainment anywhere. For me, this was a total failure. After wrestling with it for two days, I couldn't get it to stream a single file, except for a few photos in my iPhone's camera roll. What's the point of that? It took hours to index my 250GB of music, and then wouldn't play any. It needs to transcode most movie files, but it's impossibly slow. The 224MB file I used as a test would have taken a projected 10 hours to transcode, but I cancelled after an hour. Fans of this thing transcode on their computers and then set up a folder of duplicate, converted videos on the hard drive, but I think that's stupid. There is an app for iPhone called Air Video that works perfectly and instantly to stream over WiFi, (which is great but local), but does demonstrate that conversion needn't take hours. A lot of people love pogoplug; maybe you'll be lucky and be one of them. I sure am not.

This black version is too slow to be useful.

In addition, it 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.

I bought and installed the Pogoplug on my LAN for the purpose of sharing photos over the Internet.

Right out of the box I had misgivings. There is no documentation or technical specifications. That immediately raised serious questions in my mind about it being vulnerable to hacking or opening access to my computer and personal information. You have to attach it to your modem/router and allow it to go out on the Internet without knowing what it is doing. I decided to take it on faith that the company was legitimate and not going to install a backdoor into my system.

I attached a Seagate USB external hard drive as my main memory device. I have also used USB memory sticks for temporary storage. All are USB 2.0.

Initially I had issues with people accessing my files. The Web access used by outsiders does not show any indication of activity. If you have a couple of hundred photos like me, it can take a couple of minutes for anything to appear. I have also had people report 404 and other errors fairly frequently. My workaround was to create more folders to compartmentalize everything. They load quickly enough for people to see something happening and know that they are connected.

Once you get inside the folders, people see a filmstrip and a large image like they would see in Windows. It is a serviceable but not glamorous interface. It is also not customizable.

Once I established that people could access my photos over the Internet, the next step was to fill up the hard drive. To do so, my plan was to push the files over my 10/100 MBps LAN. The Pogoplug shows up as a drive, so all I have to do is drag-and-drop. The problem is that it is incredibly slow. I normally get about 30 kBps. That is dial-up modem slow.
