1 out of 5 stars   Like using a PC. Not good for Mac users
By Dr K (Ashland, OR) December 28, 2010
Review submitted for Seagate 2TB FreeAgent GoFlex Home (SESTAM2000100)
Pros: returnable
Cons: Not for mac
Other Comments: I regret buying this. I expected to be able to use it as a drive on my home network, and interact with it as a networked drive. Instead, everything about it is like having a PC on my home network, right down to the PC icon in the Shared Items sidebar. Every interaction with it is like using a PC. Though the box claims parity with the banner 'For PC and Mac', it seems that Mac users are an afterthought with this device. It can't be reformatted as a Mac drive, which means every interaction with it is mediated by the counter intuitive interface. I think most Mac users don't want another interface . . We have the Finder. The reason I regret buying it is now I have to return it.

5 out of 5 stars   great storage and easy setup
By gdv2500 (Huntingtown, MD) November 19, 2010
Review submitted for Seagate 2TB FreeAgent GoFlex Home (SESTAM2000100)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Large storage capacity, Good user interface, Easy setup
Cons: A little slower, A bit noisy
Other Comments: This product was very easy to install and set up. It plugs directly into the router and is accessed as a network drive on any PC that you set up. Make sure to save your login/password information that you use when you install the drive. The interface comes on CD and is easy. The drive shows up as 3 mapped drive letters (X: for shared, Y: for backups, and Z: for personal). You can set up an automatic backup of your PC that will automatically run and copy to the drive. The only downsides are: Copy is a bit slower than on a directly connect storage device, but the huge capacity and ability to share storage on multiple computers makes up for that. It starts up with a whirr and hum that startles me sometimes - not loud, just a noise I'm not yet used to.
I recommend this product Yes, I recommend this product
