1.0 out of 5 stars Seagate GoFlex NET Media sharing Device, 16 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seagate STAK200 FreeAgent GoFlex Net Media Sharing Device (Personal Computers)
This took a little effort to get it working. The drive attached was not directly accessible; you had to go through pogoplus. files could not be dropped onto the drive from remote devices. After a week, the green light (indicating net connectivity) turned orange (Not connected) and I was not able to access the attached drive in any way what-so-ever. I tried all ways to correct this - it was invisible to the LAN. I could access the drive by plugging it directly into the PC, so the drive was not a problem.

I was also pretty annoyed that I had to use the USB port to connect the 1Tb drive as it was too big to fit into the two docking ports.

I have returned this device to Amazon as I was so disappointed with it. Amazon were fantastic in the returns process. Mega credit to Amazon. I would not buy this product.

Hi I was wondering if may ask - when you say the 1TB drive did not fit in, did you mean this small Ultra-portable 1TB one:
Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB USB 2.0 Ultra-portable External Hard Drive - Black

...or was it the larger 3.5" GoFlex desk one that requires a power adaptor on it's own, e.g:
Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 2 TB Desktop USB 2.0 External Hard Drive with Capacity Gauge

If indeed if that smaller drive does not fit, that makes it a bit pointless, as it makes sense to use this with a portable drive you can take with you, and 1TB is the capacity you'd want. Thanks in advance for your help!

we was told by government this type of spyware would not happen & even gave us the computer missuse act but this has not stopped seagate from using your computer & network with out permision to talk to a site befor you can use it that is braking the missuse act & seagate should be fined for doing this & for forcing you to register via a back door system that may be allways there.

i have the original 1tb drive, not the slim one. it will not fit into the drive until you take the adapter out of the slot. simply snap it out with your fingers and the drive will fit perfectly.

Hope Seagate Read This
And by no means is this directed to Angela C Marino (above)
I wont be using this unit due to the LAN issues as stated in comments by Malcom Cuzick, I was actually looking for Firewire Dock or Thunderbolt Dock its been horrible even didn't load properly not like Seagate! anyway
Well Seagate have confused the hell out me re Firewire Thunderbolt USB3 1TB Drives at this time,
Just snap off the ccasing hahaha sounds about right, laughed when I read this, its a good hack, but I hope Seagate read this, When you select any number of Seagate GoFlex Drives there is NO COMPATIBLE ACCESSORY DETAILS IE: Thunderbolt Adapters or Leads? Firewire , USB3 leads? or Compatible Docking Units for each Drive offered? Weather GoFlex or not. Got even less info at for MAC GoFlex Portable 1TB Drive, I wanted 2x 1TB drives with Thunderbolt daisy chain offering Thunderbolt Out so Video Out for a second HDMI monitor as is a standard feature with Thunderbolt, but none of that Info or part numbers available on Amazon or for Mac External Firewire And Thunderbolt Drives I looked at.

Eventually Found This At (haveto pick UK manually)
