Although I firmly believe that there is no better recommendation than Amazon reviews consensus, I decided to ignore it this time and buy this product. I did it because I have had many great Seagate products and because with new technologies the problem may be on the customer's lack of basic expertise or patience.

Well, my apologizes to those who tried to prevent my purchase with their good advice. You were right.

The good about the product is that it does deliver solid streams of video or audio content wirelessly to multiple devices. However, it takes forever to write or upload your stuff into Seagate Central. It's incredibly slow to receive your input. AND, even worse, it's unreliable. Not usually, but every now and then, it does a "disappearing act" from your list of drives. Which is incredibly scary...

For all the good it does, I, and obviously many others, don't have any use for a device that is slow AND unreliable. I hope Seagate keeps working on the concept. I would concentrate on expanding the storage capacity of Seagate Wireless Plus 1 TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming as a perfect solution. Until then, I would advise people to wait..

UPDATE: I'm very disappointed that Amazon has decided, for months now, to cook the ratings of this bad product by using VINE reviewers. Vine is a respectable program when used to produce reviews for new products that need people to give them a try. That is not how VINE has been used here. This "expensive" product has been given for free to people that are more likely to consequently give it a high grade. This was done to balance the bad grades of real customers who bought the product with their own money and want to warn others not to waste their time and money.

Dear NoNonsense,

We wanted to apologize for the problems experienced with your Seagate Central Shared Storage Network drive.

You will experience slower performance if you are transferring files to the device over a wireless connection. Please try transferring files to the drive from a computer that is wired to your network as this should result in better performance.

It may also help to update the firmware on this drive to the latest available. To check for the latest firmware update, try the following link listed below:

http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/005384en

If the suggestions above do not help, we would like to talk with you, by phone preferably, to determine the root cause and available resolution to the problem. We have created a case based on your Amazon name that shows your review and our response. If from the US or Canada our contact number for technical support is 800-732-4283.

Best Regards,
Seagate Support

I'm a serious enthusiast and Unix/Linux systems guy. However, I also understand the need for easy, out of the box solutions.

This device? It rocks for me and for my proverbial mother. Actually, my mother doesn't yet own one, but she should! It is easy to use and configure, although the manual is quite lacking. You'll want to use a wired connection if you want performance, but enthusiasts might still find the performance lacking compared to a PC or high-end NAS solution. However, for the price, this thing delivers for novices and entusiasts alike.

------------------------
Blow-by-blow review below:
------------------------

Before I get to all the great things about it, lets set expectations:
* This device is priced only a few dollars more than a bare drive.
* Performance is about 22 MB/s (160mbps) for Windows and Apple file sharing.
This is faster than your WiFi, however. Use a wired connection.
* Performance jumps to 45 MB/s for insecure FTP!
* Included instructions are lacking. The device is EASY to setup, but you need to find the instructions online.

The good things (non-technical goodness):
* Easy to setup (although the manual is lacking)
* Easy to use.
* DLNA, iTunes server, etc... all disabled by default, and easy enough to enable if you want them.
* Facebook media backup feature
* Print-server included (although not advertised!)

So the great, geeky things?
* Based on Seagate's more expensive BlackArmour NAS product.
* Runs Linux with SSH enabled by default
* Uses LVM storage by default (snapshots!!!

Like so many others, I am having an issue with the file transfer speeds being extremely slow. After testing all my equipment and finding it all working perfectly, I created a tech support ticket. This is what I wrote:

Problem: Seeing maximum 5.5MB/s file transfer speeds BOTH on wired(Gigabit 1000mb/s) and wireless(1300mb/s AC) network. All ethernet cables used are Cat 6 cables.

Equipment:
Router Netgear 6300 1750mb/s AC
Wireless card: PCE-AC66 Wireless Adapter PCI Express Up to 1750Mb/s
Network Storage: Seagate Central 3TB S/N NA6S0KWR
Network cables: Belkin 6' Cat 6

Computer: Hand built
Processor: six core Intel Core i7-3930K OC to 5.0Ghz
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Formula LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Video cards: x2 EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2GB GDDR5
OS: Windows 7

So now that there should be no question as to what equipment I have, lets see if we can work this out. This network storage device only attains a maximum of ~5.5MB/s on both gigabit connection and AC wireless connection. This is confirmed on my desktop and my laptop. The firmware of all my hardware including the router and the Seagate Central are all up to date. Tests on the connection between my PC and router all come back normal. I need to know what to do to be able to see file transfer speeds that fully utilize either my wired gigabit connection or my wireless AC connection. File streaming from the Seagate Central to my TV works perfectly. I just don't feel like waiting a week(non-stop file transfer) for 2 TB of movies and TV shows to transfer over to the network drive.
