            Easy to connect to it when it is up and running. Little to mutch time to get it going. Like that you can enter a code(could have been shorter). The size is good and the lights that indicates that it's on and transmitting.

              I use this with my Ipad and it is every bit as good as described. What a pleasure to have the extra space available for movies, TV episodes and Movies. They just need to work on allowing the use of folders in the Ipad app. I recommend this product to anyone that wants to extend the memory available to their Ipad.

              Comments about Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage Device:

              I use the satellite so the kids can watch movies in the car without having to access my data plan. They can each watch their own movie on their iPads or the same one while the wife watches her podcasts without having to use any data. The 500 gig capacity allows for enough movies to safely complete any trip with the kids. Connecting to the satellite is easy and I have never experience a disconnection. If the kids want to watch the same movie I can output it through Safari to the car's entertainment system.
