2 out of 5 eggs Unreliable 11/06/2012

This review is from: Pogoplug POGOB01 Diskless System Media Sharing Device (Pink)

Pros:

- Web interface is attractive and simple
- Software allows access to remote folder as network drive
- Easy to view videos and photos in a nice slide show

Cons:

- Very slow to start up when it hasn't been used for a couple of hours or more
- Frequently forgot about the external drive attached to it (I tried a couple of them) and had to be rebooted on site to access my files -- defeats the purpose of remote access

Other Thoughts:

It's a great idea for a product; I just don't understand why it's so unreliable after a few generations. I'm upgrading to a proper NAS with a SATA port*.

*Mind you, these things actually do have a SATA port on the inside, which you can use if you jailbreak them and install ArchLinux, but why spend all that time jailbreaking when you can get a better product to begin with?
