4 out of 5 eggsIncredible Device - When Modded

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: Worked as advertised out of box. I purchased it because of it's ability to receive modded firmware which adds numerous features.

Cons: Seagate could easily implement numerous features, but doesn't invest in doing so for some reason

Other Thoughts: Worked well out of box. Flashed to modded firmware from HackSeagateSatellite.com (which adds tons of features) and can't be more happy with it.

Mod's Added Features Include:
- New Interface
- Dropbox Sync
- iTunes Server
- WiFi Passthrough
- Eye-Fi / RAW Image Server
- IIS / Web Server
- plus many more

I am not affiliated with the site whatsoever, just want to share the knowledge -

4 out of 5 eggsGood device

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: Huge portable library of files available for your iPad or other Apple devices, works very well. Also compatible with Android.

Cons: Since Apple just switched to iOS 7, had to sequentially update the drive firmware to 2.1, then again to firmware 2.2, to be compatible. Now it works fine.
The unit is sealed, rechargeable battery will eventually die, and cannot replace it.

Other Thoughts: Quite pricey, purchased from auction site. Have it in a hard drive case, hope that it will be durable.

1 out of 5 eggsLocks up all the time

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: None

Cons: Too man limitations as listed by other reviewers. I'll focus on the problems. It appears as if Seagate's firmware development just doesn't know what they're doing. Hey, Seagate. (knock, knock, knock). Your current firmware development approach isn't working. It must be removed. This thing has more bugs than code written in 3rd world nations. Oh wait, did I just let out a Seagate secret? Anyway, I used the USB to move about 1/3rd of a TB of MP3s. Now when I connect to it via my iPad it says it needs to rebuild the music library. It's stuck at 3 percent. I've tried several restarts, which is only possible after the internal battery dies - good thing it doesn't last anywhere near the 10 hours they claim. Guys, this product wasn't actually ready to deploy into the market. I suggest everyone avoid this product until Seagate starts to take their development seriously. $200 for garbage. If this isn't corrected in the next couple days it goes back with two middle fingers. Yes, it did report it had the latest firmware. There's nothing wrong on my end, it's just (bleep) that doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: I feel like a fool in believing that Seagate wasn't like all the other companies that push products out the door before they're tested, and they're developed by engineers that just don't know what they're doing as they're being directed by management that will do anything to keep their jobs. It's pathetic.

3 out of 5 eggsNot much help available when something goes wrong

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: Easy to set up and connect to my primary access point as required by FiOS.

When it works (see below), it works fairly well.

Cons: After months of reliable performance in my home, I took this to Florida (air flights both ways). It continued to work reliable in Florida, but once home, it got very cranky. That is, difficult to start (the on/off button is non-responsive), and wireless only broadcasts for ten minutes of so and then simply stops.

I don't believe that I'm doing anything differently than before the trip - same physical location and connectivity. Finding information on these problems has been frustratingly difficult. In other words, this is a good device when it works, but you're on your own when trying to resolve problems such as this.

One disappointing discovery is that data transfer speed at USB2.0 (all I have on my laptop) is realllly sloooow at @2Mbps.

Other Thoughts: What I really wanted was an NAS (network storage device), but didn't know that at the time I bought this. My plan is to purchase an NAS, laboriously transfer files from my Wireless Plus, and then discard it to avoid the temptation to use it in the future.

3 out of 5 eggsSAMBA WiFi read write / encrypted container with samba

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: slick hyper portable

Cons: -no full drive encryption possibility
-no native wifi writing on the drive
can not work as wireless device when hooked up through USB (favors USB interface) obliging to carry the charging cable all times in addition to the USB cable when longer uninterrupted witless sessions are needed (charging through drive USB -sata interface ill interrupt your wireless session as drive will favor USB 3 connection - charging and will kill your wireless)

Other Thoughts: - samba hack in order to access and write files wirelessly through network folder browsing (not the app)
- create TRUCRYPT file (900 GB) where to have all your files and access it through network browser (explorer) and mount it through truecrypt
-play all your media files with corresponding regular app.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Joe,

4 out of 5 eggsDLNA/UPnP Update

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: See my March 8 review

Cons: See my March 8 review

Other Thoughts: I response to the message above, as well as a message that I received in response to a review on another cite, I called Seagate support. I spoke with a very nice guy who indicated that the Seagate Wireless Plus HDD is not the issue and instead, the issue is that the UPnP FLAC player apps flush their cache when the HDD is restarted. I was somewhat incredulous, so I performed the followings tests, which confirmed what he said:

Test A - With the HDD remaining on: (1) turned the FLAC player apps on and off, (2) turned the iPhone5 on and off, (3) disconnected from HDD wifi and reconnected, (4) disconnected from HDD wifi, connected to music servers on other wifi, reconnected to HDD wifi. Each time, all of the music on the Seagate HDD was instantly available via two different FLAC player apps when I started them up.

Test B - Turned of HDD off/on with iPhone5 on. It took approximately 20 minutes for all of the music folders to become available.

Test C - Turned of HDD off/on with iPhone5 off, and then waited 10 minutes before turning iPhone on. It still took approximately 20 minutes for all of the music folders to become available.

The Seagate support guy also suggested using a Samba (SMB) player. I tried that and learned what everybody else already knew - SMB absolutely sucks.

The 1TB Seagate Wireless Plus is very close to being an absolute must-have for people that use CD quality resolution (and above) music files on the go. I plan to use mine in the car. [MP3 users can store an infinite amount of music on an iPod classic.] Unfortunately, without FLAC support in the Seagate app, the HDD is not very useful for music lovers with iDevices unless, of course, you can remember to turn the drive on and connected it to the iDevice 20 minutes before you go anywhere.

The Seagate support guy also indicated that the design team considered adding FLAC support to the Seagate app, but left it out because they did not think anybody wanted it. He suggested that they might change their minds if enough people requested it. Sooooo ……. please send Seagate a request for FLAC support (resolution of at least 24/96). Happy listening.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat HDD, But DLNA/UPnP Needs Some Work

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: To keep things brief - what everybody else said. Overall, its a great HDD.

Cons: SeagateMedia app relies on the mobile device's native capabilites to play music, so if you want to, for example, play FLAC files on your iPhone, you need another app. This is not a problem in and of itself because there are plenty of inexpensive FLAC player apps that work well. The problem is associated with the fact that the FLAC player apps use DLNA/UPnP to communicate with the Seagate HDD. For reasons that I admit I do not understand, each time the HDD boots up or resets for whatever reason, the DLNA/UPnP software sorts through all of the folders to create a directory. This takes more than 10 minutes in my case (500GB of FLAC files). I've watched this process on three different FLAC player apps. Same process, same amount of time to gain access to ZZ Top at the end of the list.

Seagate should either add the capability to play common music types to the SeagateMedia app (video too I guess) or should configure the DLNA/UPnP software so that the user has the option to save the folder/file information and refresh it on demand as necessary. This way, when you turn on your HDD, its ready to stream.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Joe,

This reply is from Seagate Support. We noticed your review and wanted to comment on your experience with your Wireless Plus drive.

Our Wireless Plus should not reset itself every time the drive starts up. When new content is added to the drive, it may re-index the new files but this is usually very quick unless a lot of new content has been added. We would like to talk with you in greater detail to determine the root cause and available resolution to the drive behavior described in your review. We have created case # 03280748 that shows your review and our response. Here is a web address with contact information to speak with a support representative directly:

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost there Seagate, almost...

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: This wireless drive is a cool concept for travelers. With a sleek, minimalistic look, it's perfect for folks who want their entire movie or picture library available wherever they go, but don't have the internal storage space available on their playback device. This drive lets you have that mobility easily and conveniently. The power button is on the side of the drive and is easy to access and push, and is slightly recessed so that it isn't bumped on or off by accident.

The drive itself weighs about a pound, battery included. It is USB3.0-compatible for fast transfers with compatible computers. You can also run it on battery or plugged in with the included AC adapter/charger. During my testing, the battery seemed to hold a long charge of 5+ hours (more than enough for a long plane ride). A Seagate Media App (free) is required for media playback. Download the app, then connect your device's wifi to the Seagate, and launch the app. From here the app will find all of the media on your device and let you select by type or search through the raw folders. You can also view the drive's battery life.What is really cool is that the drive also lets you do a sort of pass-through wifi mode, where you can also connect to the internet by joining another wifi network.

The default wifi network the drive uses can be changed and a password can also be set on it. I found that this password does not accept special characters, so that is a limitation.

Movies streamed from the drive smoothly and without hiccups. I did not test the usable distance, so trying to stream from a longer distance may create bandwidth issues. This device is more suited to being in the seat pocket in front of you, or perhaps on the desk next to your bed in your hotel room while on the road rather than on the other side of your house.

Cons: The biggest let-down of this device? Movies must be MPEG4 only! All other formats that I tried failed saying that playback of this media was not supported. This is terrible for folks who have an existing digital collection, perhaps on a traditional external drive, in a different format. They would have to go back and convert their entire library again! I'm not sure what Seagate's reasoning was for this limitation, but I bet it will turn a lot of people off of this product.

As cool as I thought the feature was, Wifi pass-through didnt work for me. It gave me a simple error saying "operation failed." I thought that this may be because the internet wifi network's password had a special character in it (as i mentioned earlier), but did not test this theory. Maintaining internet connectivity these days is a must, and this was very disappointing to me that it hogged my wifi connection without letting me pass-through to the internet.

I did not find a convenient way to transfer media straight from my phone/tablet to the Seagate drive - I had to channel them through a PC first. This is an inconvenience but not a deal breaker. The drive also takes a minute or two to power all the way on to the point where you can access it wirelessly. Just a nuisance but again, not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Not sure how the FCC/FAA would feel about people using this on a plane. But, what they don't know will most likely not hurt them.

Removing the USB3.0 connector module from the drive reveals standard SATA data and power connectors. I like that Seagate does this with their recent external drives, as it gives the geeky people out there more flexibility for wiring the drive up (especially when using a computer that doesnt support USB3.0).

Manufacturer Response:

Dear KD007,

This response is from Seagate Support and we'd like to thank you for taking the time to post a review of the Wireless Plus drive.

The Wireless Plus App will support all media files that are natively supported by your mobile device. For other file types that are not natively supported, you may use any number of third-party players.

It is not clear from your review description why the internet pass-through did not work for you. We wanted to provide additional instructions on the pass-through function just to make sure this was done properly (see page 9 of Users Guide):

http://ow.ly/hefx3

To upload files directly to the Seagate device, try following the instructions listed on page 19 of the Users Guide listed above.

If these suggestions do not help, or you have additional questions or concerns, we would like to talk with you in greater detail 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. Here is a web address with contact information to speak with a support representative directly:

Best Regards,
Seagate Support
