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.
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.
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!Read more ›
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?Read more ›
A Strong buy for anyone !!!

Don't buy this device!!! Obviously Pogoplug changed their remote access software, so you can access files only on your computer and not on their device anymore. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Juergen Amling

For around twenty bucks, you can not beat this for a low-end NAS. It's got 2xUSB3 and 1xSATA, plus 1xGigE... and it comes in under 10 watts. You can run Debian on it.Published 1 month ago by Martin Espinoza
