GoFlex Satellite- Mobile Wireless Storage- Brilliant for Working on the Go
Portable wireless storage is the new king on the block., This Drive combines 500GB of storage with a five hour battery and apps for both Apple iOS devices and Android offerings as well. The drive comes with a USB 3.0 adaptor for rapid file transfers to the drive,. It is about 30% larger than the Apple iPhone 4 and just under twice as thick. But it can easily be be stuck in a backpack or briefcase and forgotten.
Charging it on the go or at home, is very versatile – through a standard DC-input plug on the side as well as through the USB 3.0 interface and to charge the drive on the go, there are two solutions to charge the drive. The first is a compact AC-adapter which is not much larger than the plug itself.. The second option is a small car-charger, meaning even on road trips you can keep the drive topped up and streaming out media. These methods combined with charging through a USB port on your computer should cover almost any scenario to keep the battery -charged.
Fast read and write speeds making it fast to move around media quickly before a trip at home or abroad. Interfacing from a mobile device requires the download of a GoFlex Media app, which is currently available for both Android and iOS. Once connected with the Wi-Fi access point created by the Drive, the app recognizes the hotspot server and lets you browse all of the available media.. Seagate includes folders for videos, photos, music, and documents, as well as a settings area to configure the device from your phone. The GoFlex Satellite also has an on-board webserver for notebooks to interface with over Wi-Fi.
Smartphones and tablets with a radio for the cell networks won’t be able to get email or get online while connected to the WiFi provided by the Satellite. This is of course a limitation of those devices and something that should be resolved at some point by Google and Apple.
