Customer Reviews

It was explained to me that this was going to work just as my Samsung Note 3 did.
Dan Schlimme
The phone app (Homesync app) allows you to chose music/video/photos but gives you very little options to sort or filter.

It is bad customer service not to have a supervisor available or not to have one call a customer back.

The Samsung HomeSync is a device full of hardware power and software potential that fails to deliver on many promises and comes packed with a lack of app compatibility and crippled control functions. Unless you have a "properly" supported device (which is only the Galaxy Note 3 and S4 right now) it is no more than an overly expensive media player with a built in hard drive. Sure you can store photos, music and video on the device, if you can figure out how to get them to actually copy from your mobile phone to the player, but why would you? There are better options out there right now (now being with the current unaddressed by Samsung, see below). The device fails to meet expections and will not until Samsung addresses the large number of feature gaps in the current software implementation and application compatibility (or lack thereof).

Video:
Supports playing most video types, including MKV with native blu-ray embedded (but NOT blu-ray files directly and no ISOs) and plays this high data rate video very well. Will also stream video to your phone in real time including transcoding of any stream it supports. From the video playback perspective this IS a great device.

Audio:
Supports many formats including Flac! And also supports DTS-HD and Dolby HD streams in MKV video containers. A pleasant surprise.

As a multimedia playing device it really excels. However as a media management and control device it leave much to be desired.

Performance:
Very good performance, great network connectivity (very easy to get connected). I've yet to see the device hitch or slow down regardless of what is thrown at it.

I really wanted to like this device, but it's just too awkward to use and too slow. I got it to work with both my Note 2 (not on a plan) and my Note 3 (Verizon Plan). From the way the default launcher/main screen is set up, it looks like Samsung wants to be the "Portal" to all of my content purchases, which just isn't going to happen. I don't like apps or content that I don't use very often or at all cluttering up my main screen (Samsung only gives you one screen on this device, and of course the apps screen.
Sideloading: I was actually able to sideload quite a few apps (18) that weren't offered in Samsung Apps or Google Play: Google Maps, Netflix, Facebook, Spotify Premium, Firefox, Google Mail, TuneSync, A1 SD Bench, DiskUsage, Google Earth, ES File Explorer, FolderSync, Gmail, IP Cam Viewer Pro (I have IP cameras to keep track of a 92 year old mother with dementia) , iSyncr Trial, PowerAmp, and Quadrant. And, of course I just had to get rid of the Samsung launcher and loaded Nova Launcher (couldn't load the prime). All of these apps worked with few hiccups except that I traded out iSyncr for TuneSync that worked better. I used FolderSync because it keeps track of new additions in my Google Drive account that totally syncs up with my desktop and Note 3. I've got about 125GB out on GDrive, and I'll probably be purchasing another 100GB of GDrive space because it's working so well for me.
But, I thought that if I had all my multimedia content on the HomeSync that response times would be better in browsing the files instead of broadcasting them wirelessly--not. I used about 240GB of the HomeSync's 1TB, and I just couldn't scroll through the folders fast enough in the Gallery app to find my stuff.

I really wanted to like this device. I was perfectly happy and willing to accept the advertised limits on which phones it works with since I have an S4. I thought the specs were great for the price. The styling is nice. The speed seems pretty decent/acceptable. .. but then you open and try to use the thing and all that hope and potential dissolves into broken promises, inconsistent behavior, and financial disappointment that I've wasted my money.

Pros: the specs, potential, specs, potential... Homesync works with a usb mouse and keyboard, even a hybrid one from HP ... my only saving grace.

Cons:
1) Either it or the new S4 will not stay connected with or continue to identify one another, so I've had to constantly go back to a factory reset situation more times than I care to remember. The first one I received was a lemon and after at least a dozen or so support calls with Samsung they suggested I return it, which I did for a replacement unit, which only worked marginally better. The first one would not connect to the phone at all and the second one will usually connect, but the devices will not remember one another and I have to reconnect them time and time again.

2) There is some kind of incompatibility with the Google Play Services app. When I try to use the stock included Photo app it says I have to load Google Play Services, which appears to already be loaded and the Play Store will not allow it to be "loaded again". I tried uninstalling updates and re-updating, but this makes no difference. Due to this disconnect there seems to be the same issue with some other Google apps which say I need Google Play Services and then I can't load it.
