But the good news is that this little box runs Linux and it is the cheapest Linux computer you can buy. You can repurpose the box as a very light weight server for all kinds for uses. It uses the ARM CPU and I've re-flashed it with a different Linux distribution. I paid $18 for the box and I think got a fair deal.
Just don't buy this for it's intended purpose
The web site is the most unfriendly user website I have ever encountered. Nothing is intuitive. They offer software and don't explain what the software will allow you to do. I can put files on my pogo plug hard drive and access them from my iPad and a web browser, but the main reason I did this was to allow my family access to my photos. Granted I can erase all the files from my pogo plug, but I can't edit permissions. What they really want you to do is buy cloud storage, buying the device is to suck you in to buy additional storage or software. Buyer beware.
I would argue yes - to an extent.
The basics of Pogoplug aren't really simple, which is part of the reason so many people say bad things about Pogoplug.
The Pogoplug makes your computer storage device - an SD card, a flash drive, a hard drive, whatever you plug in that is supported - part of a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. Once you've attached a storage device, you need to attach the Pogoplug to your local network by plugging the cable into your router.
Next you need to activate your Pogoplug, which is free, and - poof! - with the proper software, your Pogoplug device and its attached storage are now available to you from anywhere in the world. You can reach it from any computer with a web browser, by using paid software from Pogoplug or with your Apple or Android device using free software.
Pogoplug provides dedicated feature to backup the contents of your computer or just your music, pictures and videos. Rudimentary players are included in the Pogoplug software. You can also opt to share your files with other people.
Does it work. Yes. Does it work well? Aha! Here's why so many people speak ill of Pogoplug: there are a whole bunch of variables far outside Pogoplug's or your control. I might have speedy transfers - and you won't. The amount of bandwidth available is a huge factor - sizeable uploads and downloads could take days. Or just a few minutes.Read more ›
New Cloud sync in iOS now uploads to the same directory as pogo plugs upload directory for Android devices.
Downside is that in order to make above configuration you need to buy pogo plug premium software for another $29. This software should have been included. Free software provided by pogo plug is crap and will not do much.

I purchased this to use locally only, as cloud backup is useless. I purchased cloud backup on a trial basis with a company that had a promotion a year ago. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Jack Sprat
