From the Manufacturer

At a Glance

Automatic Remote Backup for your Computer and Mobile Devices – Reinvented
Backing up is like taking vitamins; we know it’s good for us, but it’s often too difficult to remember and maintain. Online cloud backup solutions are slow and expensive for large document or photo collections, and attaching a hard drive to your laptop or computer is not practical when you’re on the move. Set up Pogoplug in 60 seconds, point all your computers and mobile devices to back up to your Pogoplug, and never worry about backing up again.

Live Adventurously

Unlike other solutions, Pogoplug works to safeguard your computers and devices even when you take them away from your home or office. Live adventurously - trek through Tibet, climb Mount Whitney, or scuba in the Great Barrier Reef. You can rest easy knowing that your photos, documents and other important files are continuously and automatically copied to your Pogoplug even when you are on the go.

Access Your Backup from Anywhere
Missing a critical presentation because you dropped your laptop? Access and download it on the go from any web browser. Can’t fit all of your photos or videos on your phone or laptop? Leave them safely at home on your Pogoplug, but access them from anywhere.

Powerful
Back up all of your family’s devices or even a small office to a Pogoplug. Simply add additional or larger drives as your storage needs grow – no fees, no limits.

Secure Sharing, Easy Sharing
Worried about publishing videos of your kids on Facebook or YouTube? Share large files instantly, securely and privately via links you email to trusted friends and family.

Or, publish to Facebook, Google+ or Twitter with a single click.

60-Second Setup
We challenge you to set up Pogoplug in 60 seconds or less. It’s as easy as connecting Pogoplug to your router, attaching any USB or SD storage, and entering an email address and password to create your account.

How It Works

1. Add storage.

2. Install Pogoplug's free companion software
to start continuos backup.

3. Keep your files safe at home and
access from anywhere.

I too for one fell for the USB 3.0 connection, but you can't quite get that much significant increase in performance over WIFI connection anyway. USB2 is plenty fast for 720P streaming.
However the biggest oversight on the side of POGO is they do not support SAMBA/SMB share over the same Network. Their 2 years old Seagate Dockstar (aka. Pogoplug) can do it. You can't truly call yourself a NAS product without the support for some basic standard. If you do not have the SMB/SAMBA support, that means, your other hardware, i.e. Media Streamer, Google TV, or other devices that can take advantage of popular network protocol can not see the data on the pogo. Why would then someone connect all their external storage to one single Pogo, when you can't even share it among all your devices in your own home!

I am not bashing Pogo the company as a whole, their 2 years old product works great, the Seagate Dockstar, if you can find one, you can pick one up for $20-30. It supports the SAMBA/SMB accses/Windows Share , so I can stream movies, watch photos, edit files from all my devices without the worry or install of any of the Pogo application.

Their App , simply gives you access when you are outside your home, but what about when you are home. It's much more efficient to access the data directly without another software layer.

Pogo, please do something about this.

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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
That is the question unintentionally posed by the Pogoplug 4. Or not. As you read through the reviews, you will find eloquent opinions on both sides.

At first I really didn't know what to make of this device, or what use it could be to me. I had the same feeling with the Seagate GoFlex and the Maxell AirStash. While similar in nature, those two items must be in range of the device in order for the user to access files previously loaded thereupon. The Pogo is in the middle- between local WiFi mass storage, and the Real Cloud. I am sure if you are reading this, you know what cloud computing is- if not, in brief, it is a way in which all (or some of) your data is stored at a remote server farm somewhere, and you access it via the Internet. To some it is the future of data storage, to others it is a security risk. I work in IT and see both sides. Some clients embrace it fully, others run from it saying something about "security issues".

It has been proposed as the only bulletproof way to do a system backup with complete confidence. But most IT managers I know prefer to have a backup they can take home, not depend on a remote server and the Internet. However, I have seen more local backup solutions fail that cloud-based. However, I have not yet discovered how one might set up a schedule to run backups.

Enter the Pogo, a halfway step. With it, you can attach any number of mass storage devices and access it anywhere via the Internet. It accepts almost any storage you may have at your disposal- USB drives, external HDD's, SD card and most weird of all, a bare 2.5" HD, which sits upright in the middle, like an iPod dock. I had to wonder, how many people have such a drive just lying around, or would be willing to buy one just to use with the Pogo?

Verified Purchase
After owning 4 of them (serves as cheap home network cluster), here is my review.

The Good to Bad

1. Cheap, mostly you get them in "deals" from any where as low as $19 to $39. Big bang for money for h/w junkies.

2. Easy to root and install custom build including "nslu2 - linux" which can run on top of existing factory software. You can install stuff like transmission, samba ( windows share works for home TV) after "ROOTING"

3. Currently customer care do respond fast, even though guys are completely clueless and seems as if haven't seen a real device ever. Android and IOS apps are available.

4. It's like having 33.3% "up time" with unlimited storage compared to Dropbox's 99.9 % with limited space. Most of time web-ui keeps on spinning as it's trying to query your device for folder list etc. So don't depend on it or be patient and keep refreshing your browser.

5. There was a good forum with lot of hacks & trouble shooting tips which was "moved" w/o moving "ANY" of its content. If you have any problems with this better do some DIY or trawl deep into goggle. Current product knowledge base and customer service won't be much help.

6. Pogoplug would try hard to sell $29/yr plan for some "premium" features. If you plan to open some e-con company get email list for these valued pogoplug customers.

7. Transcoding problems, takes 10 hours to encode an 40 minute video and whole this time device is very-very slow. I would recommend disabling photo thumnails, video encoding etc. Still Whatever you do web-ui would choke. If it was really a problem it could have been done through companion desktop software, just poor design, picky software, use cases and no customer experience bench marking.
