From what I've read, this pink version is the same as the black version I bought for $50. It's a steal at $25.

It's pretty easy to set up and once you get their software updates, works very reliably to serve your files to yourself and/or your friends. For me, the user interface is dumbed down a little too much, but I'm a professional techie. I've also had minor problems showing videos from it, but those problems have worked themselves out.

I've found their technical support people to be pretty helpful, though they send stock responses at first. Eventually they get around to actually digging into your problem and getting you a real solution. But they're always polite, never dismissive, and they get back to you pretty quickly.

Verified Purchase
I got the pink/magenta pogoplug because it was only 25 bucks. It seems that the color of the plastic did not market well (compared to the same unit with black plastic being sold for double the price!), but saving 25 bucks for this minor difference seems like a very good deal.

The pogoplug is variation of a technological breakthrough in a low cost, bare bones, stripped down computer that consumes about 5 watts of power. If you plugged in a touchscreen LCD monitor and hacked in a new Ubuntu operating system, you would have a decent little computer. My brother visits a Linux users group where they converted units like this into usable computers (adding a USB wifi to visit local wifi cafes, ones that allow you to plug into their wall socket, since it does not have a battery inside). I was tempted to get one just to do this conversion, but with the netbooks and tablets around, when you add up the price of the things that you would need to upgrade it to a full computer you are not saving any money (you would need to add some thumb drive memory, a USB wifi stick, a USB LCD screen, USB hub, and possibly a keyboard and mouse).

The main strength of the pogoplug as a stripped down computer turned server is that you can leave it plugged in and only consume a small amount of wattage, less than some low wattage light bulbs. I found some minor challenges activating the unit. It is kind of "plug and play" but you need to use your browser to connect with the pogoplug website. There are two different activations. One is very automatic and easy, to activate the unit. The other one, needed to have the plug sense any external hard drives that are plugged into it, is also there, but not as well marked and a little harder to find.

I have had my PogoPlug for a little less than 18 months. I bought the Pogoplug because it seemed like a great way to implement cloud storage for my critical files. I used it with the Microsoft Sync Toy to synchronize three folders on my computer to the web for backup and to make them available when I am traveling. For the first 17 months, I would give the device a 3 or 4 star rating. It worked as advertised but was a bit flakey. It had to be reset often, the software updates were consistently buggy and oh yeah, what an incredibly ugly color of pink! Overall, it was not a well thought out product but it got the job done.

Then in April 2013, Cloud Engines, the maker of Pogoplug pushed out an update that changed everything: They deleted access drive letter access to the cloud storage. This means that to utilize the cloud storage, I had to use a browser, and to use it well I had to use Google Chrome. With this update, Pogoplug took their one big advantage as a product away. No longer could I store data to drive 'P' and decide based on the folder whether it was stored locally on my Pogoplug or online via the cloud. Instead I had to load a browser, log onto their my.pogoplug.com page and drag and drop my files. I could no longer write scripts to automate the backup process. Instantly, Pogoplug went from having an advantage over every other cloud storage device to being pretty much useless.

The biggest problem with the changes implemented by the new update is that users were not told about it. It makes you wonder what will come next; deleting support for photos? There is now way to roll back to the old update. You are just stuck.

Like many I was happy with my pogoplug until they decided to push an update that crashed both my pogoplugs while I was 400 miles away for the Thanksgiving holiday. What an terrible choice in time to decide to force customers' pogoplugs to update, here I am at my father in law's house about to show them some pictures of their niece when suddenly I can't acces either of my pogoplugs with the family pictures on them. I head to the forums only to find that Cloud engines had decided that the weekend before the holiday was a great time to push an update out. It's now a little over a month and 3 service tickets later and I'm still trying to nurse one of my pogoplugs back into working properly. Thanks Cloud Engines!

If they ever get this fixed I might update my review but for now I'd say just stay away until they get the kinks sorted out unless of course you want to be part of what is apparently their unannounced pubic beta. BTW- if they brick your device from afar pushing it an "official update" chances are slim to none they'll fess up and replace it in my experience thus far.
