  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Wireless and small footprint!

Cons:If power goes out you will have to restart your computer to see drive

The Bottom Line: Wireless connectivity to your PC/MAC - recommend this product!


I purchased this Network Storage System from Amazon.com primarily because I wanted the wireless capability to backup all my files. I wanted something that stands up vertically instead of laying down flat that would have a small footprint size and could sit on the edge of my desk. This unit is approximately 7" x 3" so it is relatively small which is great if you are concerned with size like I was. The unit connects to my router via an Ethernet cable that is in the box so take this into account when considering placement. I did not have to use the CD that came in the box to access the unit, my computer was able to detect it automatically which was great. The time to connect after getting it out of the box was about 5 minutes. Another feature is a USB port on the back bottom of the unit which is for a printer. I have not found this to be reliable for some reason and when it did work, the time until it printed was slow. This may be due to the fact that the power went out in my duplex and even though everything is connected to a HUGE backup power supply unit, you will have to restart your computer to see the drives again. There are three areas automatically partitioned on this drive: GoFLEX BACKUP/PERSONAL/PUBLIC. I am using this unit on a Windows 7 64 bit machine and am satisfied with connectivity except when the power goes out. This product works on both PC/MAC and comes with a 2 year limited warranty. Also remotely access from your smartphone and tablet.
