The device could be made a lot more useful if it could be made to work with things like Dropbox, for example.
Larry
I think the CloudEngines company has lost the vision that made them develop the Pogoplug in the first place, and that's really sad.
Adam Van Pelt
If Pogoplug were to go out of business, I would still have access to the hard drive and could plug it into any computer.

I've been using pogoplug connected to a 250GB external hard drive for about a month now, and can say they werent kidding how simple this is. It took longer for me to find room around my desk to connect everything than logging into their site download a simple application and off i go. The application creates a virtual drive on your computer that allows you to use it as a normal drive connect straight to the pc. Although they do provide a software to monitor for folder changes to sync to your files i opted for a more robust software. I decided to use SyncBackPro to monitor any changes on folders and sync then from my pc to pogoplug and pogoplug to pc (along w/ many other features). This seems to do the trick nicely. If you have multiple drives connected to your pogoplug you can do active sync which will transfer the files to another hard drive for redundant backups.

The website [...] looks and works wonderfully. Its able to transcode your videos into HTML5 allowing you to view your videos anywhere and pretty much anything. The sharing option is fantastic when working on projects. Only downside is if you share a folder that other party (and given full access) can use up as much storage on your hard drive as they want. There currently is no way to limit how many gigs they can use. It would be best to have a extra hard drive for sharing only in case your sharing.

As a android user they do have a app on the marketplace which recently had a update that really improved upon it. Again since videos are HTML 5 you can view them easily. It does get little choppy on 3G but on wifi works perfectly. Only downside is that you can upload documents/images from your phone to your pogoplug.

I work out of town a lot and want to be able to transfer large files back and forth to a remote site. Also I collaborate with other professionals and need to share large files with them. Pogoplug is my solution. It works great. I have 2TB drives connected to it and, rather than trying to e-mail large files, I just upload to my pogoplug and share them with whoever I want. Also, whenever I have questions, the Pogoplug customer service is quick to respond and very helpful. I have been very pleased.

Update (January 2013):

For anyone looking for a real alternative to Pogoplug, I whole-heartedly recommend the NAS products from Synology.

I purchased the Synology Feature-Rich 2-Bay Network Attached Storage Server for Workgroup/Office (DS213) and wrote a very detailed review of that product here on Amazon. I've been using it for several months now and have been thoroughly impressed. The Synology box I have does everything I need and it does a lot of things I don't need now but may need down the road.

Unlike the Pogoplug, the Synology has been able to do everything it's advertised to do. More importantly, what the Synology does, it does exceptionally well. The Pogoplug, on the other hand, is billed as being able to do many things; but it fails to deliver reliably on most all of those things in my experience. Sure, the Synology box I got is many times more expensive than the Pogoplug ($40 vs. $299 as of this writing), but I truly believe you get what you pay for. The OS on the Synology products ("DSM" -- short for DiskStation Manager) is incredibly robust and has an impressive list of third-party packages (apps) that extend its capability.

Also, the Synology products work beautifully for Time Machine backups right out of the box. No need for third party software or hacks to be able to use a Synology box as a Time Machine destination. What's also nice is that you can create a different user account on the Synology for each Mac that is using Time Machine and set a disk space quota that's unique to each account.

I've had my Pogoplug Pro for over 6 months now, and I can't recommend them at all. I got it because I thought I would easily be able to transfer and share files and stream media to any Internet-connected computer or device. Well, if you really want streaming you have to pay for the "premium" software. What part of "free" do they not understand? I paid for the device and they said the service was free. Apparently they've changed their minds...

1) I don't want to have to install software on a computer that is not mine in order to get the full functionality of the device. That defeats the whole purpose. The selling point was that I could access anything connected to the device, any time and anywhere I had Internet service. That's not the case and it's false advertising.

2) I don't even want to have to install software on my own devices in order to get the full functionality. I don't want stuff running in the background and hogging resources, especially network resources. Folks, streaming audio and video over the Web just isn't that difficult, and file transfers certainly aren't. There's no accounting for what a PITA this is in practice.

3) It's incredibly unreliable.
3a) I'm constantly having to reload the my.pogoplug page in order to continue what I'm doing, and then it starts back at the beginning, not the page where I actually was.
3b) Devices are constantly showing up and disappearing, so I click on a link and it tells me the thing I clicked on doesn't exist (and when I reload it is in fact gone), or it's just not there at all when I need it. I have several different devices attached, and which one(s) are available at any given moment seems totally random.
3c) It couldn't be any slower or less responsive.
