    FAR TOO RISKY TO PURCHASE AS A BACK-UP DEVICE, 3 Jan. 2015

    After three months use I can state that I have been sold a seriously flawed product (fortunately it is guaranteed until 2017).

    It is Seagate build and badged as Samsung. Unfortunately, I was swayed by the apparent Samsung branding. The unit will no longer function as a WiFi hotspot (despite all of the reset procedures and battery charging cycles). This is a huge problem if you have bought this product as your primary backup device.

    The only solution offered by Seagate is a product return. So any customer experiencing non-functioning WiFi has to wipe the drive and compromise their backup facility for the period of return. These data security capable hybrid products should be treated differently to other forms of electronics (the replacement should be sent in advance of the return). I am now faced with the need to buy additional storage media to take the back-up for the period of the return procedure.

    If you are wanting a device that can be accessed over WiFi by third-party file management android apps – look eleswhere! The technology is under-developed at present. Android users that are looking for a large storage capacity that can easily be accessed through a third party file management app (like File Explorer or Solid Explorer) will be sorely disappointed. There just is not enough functionality in the Samsung app, and the superior third-party Android apps cannot read the drive over the WiFi.

    The functionality that ought to be available with this product is achievable if it is connected to a HooToo TM02 mobile router. Free exchange of files by means of android third party file management apps is in fact possible. When are Seagate going to provide this level of capability in a WiFi HDD?

    Very disappointing … and I will not be surprised if it is withdrawn from the market by Seagate.

    A lot of reviewers here have had issue with the Samsung Wireless app used to browse and view media on their tablet/phone but for me, the experience has been flawless. I bought the drive at the beginning of December and have used it extensively since,both for viewing content via a USB port on a TV and also through the app on my tablet.

    The drive connects using Wi-Fi, creating a network for you ( you don’t need an existing Wi-Fi- network to use this – perfect for out and about ) and I’ve tested it at a range of over 20 metres in different rooms. It copes well even at this distance and so far there have been no interruptions to anything I’ve watched. Setup is easy, I have the drive formatted to use on a Mac and files are dragged and dropped onto it. Transfer times are quick the 1.5 TB of storage means I can squeeze lots of movies and TV shows on it without worry about their size.

    There is a slight whirr from the drive when it’s first called into action but settles down afterwards and cannot be heard during movie playback. I have a 16gb Xperia tablet and with limited storage like this, the Samsung wireless mobile media product is ideal as an expansion.

    I managed to time it right and got it for £90 through Amazon but would happily pay £120 for it. Very pleased customer! Any questions, drop me a comment. Hope this helps

    It’s an external hard drive with wireless connectivity. Nothing more, nothing less. But sadly Samsung have chosen to cripple it. Firstly, it doesn’t just appear as storage to your Android device. You can *only* access it through the Samsung app. Which means you’re at their mercy. I have thousands of albums in Ogg Vorbis format. This is well supported by Android and playback is fine. Except that the Samsung app only knows about MP3 and not Ogg Vorbis. So despite the fact that I have a hard drive connected to my Android device, containing media that the device is happy to play, I can’t play that media because Samsung’s app doesn’t know about that particular format. For the supported formats, it works well enough. But there is no reason for the additional restrictions.
