4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value Entry-Level NAS - Some Limitations 18 May 2013
By Robert Groom TOP 100 REVIEWER
Size Name:3TB|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Seagate Central is a hefty unit. This is largely because it contains a heavy, 4-platter hard drive, and because there are additional peripheral components packed into the unit for running the NAS logic.

It can best be described as 'unobtrusive'. It's matt black, and designed to lay flat on a surface. It can't be stood on its end, but as it's all too easy for external drives to get knocked over in that orientation, and you have a good chance of losing data if you do so, that's no bad thing.

The case has a fine mesh covering, which is very effective at allowing heat to escape, but it is a bit of a dust-trap, so I think a regular vacuum clean will be in order. There's no integral cooling fan - cooling is via natural convection - this does make the unit practically silent in operation however, and less likely to fail from heat stress if the fan fails (which they often do). Note that you should not place other devices on top of the unit, or it will not be able to cool itself adequately, so if you're stacking equipment, the NAS will need to be top of the heap; perhaps a challenge if you're pairing it with something equally un-stackable like a D-Link Boxee media player.

The drive itself is a Seagate ST3000DM003 5900rpm with 4 platters and 8 heads. It has 64BM of cache, and a latency of 5.1ms. It's rated for 180MB/s peak sustained data, but in practice, this is limited by the network interface to substantially less.

Apart from the small LEDs on the network port, there is only one light on the unit, secreted beneath the mesh covering. This glows orange on boot, and then changes to steady green when it is ready for action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great drive for the price 7 Oct 2013
By RichM
Size Name:4TB|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a large storage device for my media library. Wanted something that could be connected to wirelessly, so my TV could see it, and could stored 300+ DVDs in mpeg format. This does the business.

The drive is not physcially large, but it isn't tiny either, but what would you expect for 4TB? It isn't truely wireless requiring an ethernet connection to the router but once setup everything else is gravy. It does require a plug socket as it must be powered, but as mentioned elsewhere it is not fan cooled, so once running is virtually silent. It needs a reasonable amount of space around it so don't put things on top if you can help it and certainly don't completely block the top up. Dusting as mentioned elsewhere is also essential.

Setup is quick and simple, it comes with a management program call Seagate Central and can integrate with TVs and mobile devices using the media app. You can also access your content via the web using the External Seagate Tappin website. Note though that finding detailed documentation on both the management program and the media app is a tad difficult though and when found leaves a lot to be desired.

Finally, when I received mine I had a problem with the PSU. Sent an email to Seagate Support and received a reply within a day and a new PSU shortly after with no hassle.

Definitely recommend this.

For some extra reference, here are some helpful tidbits missing from the documentation for you:
1. The drive comes with sample files (some small videos, photos and music files). If you want to keep these don't wipe the drive using the the restore function. The data isn't restored after the wipe and isn't available anywhere to down load.

4.0 out of 5 stars A grand (Seagate) Central station 24 May 2013
By SpecialOrder937 TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Size Name:3TB|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Seagate Central is basically just a NAS (Network-Attached Storage) drive. Amazon's title calls it a "Wireless Hard Drive", which is a bit misleading. There's no wireless capability built-in; it simply connects to your wireless router. Seagate seems keen to avoid the term "NAS", possibly because some people don't know what the acronym stands for, nor what it is. The Seagate Central might best be described as a smaller, simpler, single-drive version of a typical NAS device, and as such it succeeds quite well.

Physically, the Seagate Central is as bland-looking as your average hard drive. There are only three ports on the rear of the device: power, Ethernet and USB. These ports are built into a recess - a design decision that's as irksome as it is pointless. The Ethernet port is the Gigabit type, which is great, but the USB port is USB 2.0, which rankles with me. Why should an up-to-date device like this one, whose primary purpose in life is the transferral of data, be sporting an older, poorer data transferral standard? This is even more unforgivable considering that USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. In operation, the device makes about as much noise as an ordinary desktop hard drive, and it's much quieter than many NAS devices I've used.

Set-up is pretty straightforward: just connect the device to your router using the supplied Ethernet cable. If a direct connection to your router isn't practical, you could connect the device to your router via Powerline adapters or a wireless bridge. Using one of these connection methods might allow you to place the device near your TV - an appropriate location for the drive if you intend to load it with movies. On a Mac, the device appears in the Finder's sidebar.
