Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Home


A simple, affordable alternative to a full-blown NAS device.

One annoyance of the GoFlex Home is that on a Mac you'll also need to run a separate utility to configure the drive for Time Machine though the benefits of doing so are of course well worth the effort. On Windows you've the option to use that OS' own...

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Home


As a base NAS offering the GoFlex Home is functional but lacks a real killer feature to make it stand out from the NAS pack, and the fact that certain features are in effect hidden behind a paywall detracts from its overall value significantly.

Simple setup. USB port for printer sharing. Media file sharing.

User creation limited unless you pay for pro features. Backup software is a trial version. Lacks RAID. Some pro features should be standard, not paid extras.

Seagate's latest NAS solution offers the basics of backup and streaming, but to access its best features, you’ll have to pay an annual subscription fee.

Seagate GoFlex Home 3TB


This product does what it is supposed to, just not what I expected it to do. Good NAS solution for someone inexperienced with network sharing. Permissions, privacy, and pass-wording functions are very rudimentary and not adaptable. Seagate's interface...

I bought this product on sale last week (a 2T), installed it on windows 7 and it worked well for backup. As usual, for this kind of product, the IU is a real CRAPP and the quality pictures I looked pictures from my ipad via my router, they where realy...

Seagate network HD


I've been using the product for about a week now, and I've already filled up half of the capacity. Transfer rates are as expected, but the product is more durable than I expected. I've dropped the device more than a couple times, and it still...

Hard drive failure


The portability of the product is what makes it an attractive buy. However, I had important files backed up to this product and needed to reload windows. Guess what..... The hard drive failed. I checked it just before reloading Windows. I had to bring...

Adequate, but not high performance.


I have the 1Tb version, and it does the job I need. As clunky as the interface is, if you don't have to use it (which I rarely do), you'll get by. I found it on sale, so I scooped one, and also have a Seagate USB 1Tb hooked to the USB port. That works...

Great idea


My first one had hard drive problems. The second one is going great. I like that I can share files with other people easily. It streams mpeg files to my Nexus nicely.
