        Comments about Seagate 4TB STCG4000100 Central Shared Storage HDD:

        I have this hooked up to a gigabit hub on my office's network. It makes grabbing files fast and easy, even if I'm not at my desk and without having to give people passwords to my computer. It works great as a backup drive and I house my iTunes library on it as well. The biggest problem I have with it is that connecting to it over the network, even through a gigabit hub, can be laggy and cause OSX to freeze up in situations where a regular drive wouldn't cause any problems. I'd love it if it had an alternate thunderbolt or USB port on it when I wanted to directly connect it to my computer to avoid those hassles, but alas...

        Comments about Seagate 4TB STCG4000100 Central Shared Storage HDD:

        New computer was having trouble keeping USB HDDs active and I decided to try this wireless unit to back up large photography files. Initially had trouble getting Seagate's Dashboard software to see the drive. After one re-boot it showed up as Network Attached Storage and is performing very well. Access speed could be limited by a wireless router's baud rate, but mine is almost as fast as the USB connected Hard Drives. Remote access to this drive through the Internet does leave a lot to be desired. That, most likely, is due to the low speed of my Internet connection.

          No problems with set up...connected easily and was transferring files in under 10 minutes. Quiet and, at least up till this point, hassle free.

          I got this drive a couple of days ago. Set up is very easy but the performance is very slow. It is not worth the money.
