Customer Reviews of Pogoplug File Sharing Solution - Black
Pogoplug is your personal cloud storage device. It is easy to setup and works great. All you have to do is download the free app that works on any device and you have access to your files. It serves its purpose for accessing files remotely. If you don't trust Dropbox, this is your private cloud service.
Meh, not worth the cost.4/11/2012
I bought this to share large files in a cloud from east to west coast (USA). The connection was not great and even though the PogoPlug showed up on my server always, people would get disconnected when trying to access it from outside. SOrt of a waste
Great Cloud Service4/2/2012
This device is easy to setup and works great. I have access to four external hard drives from any location that has wi-fi. All you have to do is download the free app that works on any device and you have access to your files. On my laptop it shows up in Windows Explorer as my P-drive. It is a great device at an affordable price.
I have a 1 TB hard disk connected to this. Access files through Android Google Nexus, iPhone 3GS, and web. Once software is updated regularly, it has never failed. Serves its purpose for accessing files remotely. I don't want to trust dropbox, icloud or other services and pay a monthly payment. This you can control yourself and you manage. I also share lot of files with friends, and they download from my home server. Much easier than putting in third part file sharing services. Pogoplug devices are my favorite!
I work in a different city than I live. This makes keeping track of files from home and work so easy, I don't know how I did it before.
good product but not a good purchase1/6/2012
I tried to activate this item through the website but cannot make it. I double checked with Pogoplug Tech Support and found that what I got is an open box item, and was registered with another account. I have several Pogoplug products. However, this purchase is not that satisfied.
Great way to manage your external files throughout11/8/2011
I have two 1TB external hard drives, and a couple other smaller external hard drives, so once I saw what this thing was capable of I bought it immediately. I couldn't be happier with the streaming capabilities this thing has, and have my Pogoplug music folders synced to Spotify on all my computers. Makes managing my huge music collection on all my computers so easy! Also helps me manage my other files (although file copying is sometimes slow). If you have lots of ext hard drives/files, BUY THIS!
Good idea, but slow9/6/2011
Decided to try this after a friend shared files on their unit. It does what the adds say, but accessing anything other than text documents remotely is so slow as to be irritating, Not sure if it is my slow cable upload speed or the unit, but I unplugged the unit and threw it in a drawer after about 3 months. Now I just carry an external drive with me when I travel, with copies of the files I need on it.
Seems to be working fine8/12/2011
Had some minor problem with not able to connect to drives. Customer Support was prompt and provided solutions. As with all hardware there are so many varables like different brand names and systems. I an currently enjoying a fully functioning Pogoplug.
This product had potential. Needs improvement
I love buy.com. Great prices, great service, quick shipping. My favorite online retailer. Now...the pogoplug. Setup couldn't be easier. 1 cable to the router, plug in the power and a USB drive and you're done. It's nice that it only takes that long so you won't have spent your whole day configuring a product that won't work anyway. You can view photos and you can stream music but FORGET streaming video. Don't take my word for it, google it like I should have before I bought. I got it for $50 shipped during a sale. At full price I would return it. As it is, I'm too lazy and will wait for a software update. I've never reviewed a product here before but this one is so bad I felt it deserved special consideration.
It is easy to setup this device,no special network configuration is required.I have similar device buffalo link station produo which require special Network configuration for web sharing. But POGO PLUG PRO is easy to setup as compared to Buffalo link station produo. My major problem is that I am not able to view larger number of my video file. It took almost 72 hours to transcode/process my total Data of 48 GB including picture video documents and music. I have sent several e mail to Pogoplug customer service,and they are prompt in their reply, but still I am not able to view larger number of my video files. Few video files I am able to view. Customer service insisted me that video should be in H264 format, If I have to manually transfer all video in H264 format, then WHAT IS THE POINT OF BUYING THIS DEVICE. Customer service is prompt in their response but still they are unable to fix my issue of viewing video file on their pogoplug web link. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DEVICE TO ANY ONE. For better performance of this device High speed internet is required. I have Verizon FIOS 15 MB download and 5 MB upload connection, even with high speed connection I am not able to view my video file on pogoplug web link. I am able to view only few file out of my total file. Customer service respond to my e mail quickly but still they are not able to resolve my issue of viewing the video file on their web link. Video file can be of any format like, AVI MOD or any file. It is the pogoplug server which trancode/video steams the file and I should be able to view. If I am not able to view the video file, then I can not share with my friends and family. Repeat. Not recommended device.
Like how it works but not a fan of how it performe6/30/2011
I like the data-portable idea so give it a try. It's easy to use but it will make your data access become very slow!! I am not so happy about it. After a while the server lost contact with one of my portable drive.... I have to restart it again! :-(
TOASTED MY EXTERNAL HARDDRIVE6/26/2011
The UI of their software is not good. I determined it was not worth the time or money for the benefits offered. I uninstalled it and now my external harddrive is not recognized by my PC. Tons of important data lost and now I have to buy another external harddrive. Beware!
You have to get one!6/21/2011
I was looking for an easy way to share my USB drives on my home network. This device allows you to add up to 4 drives. You can also "share" them on the web, which I don't want to do, but its possible. Very easy to setup, it did it all by itself. All instructions are on the web via a link which is different, but worked. To get Drive Letter access via My Computer, you must install their software, which is unclear but OK to do. I got mine on sale! Great deal, Great device! Now my kids are streaming movies, very cool!
Great device. you can view your file everywhere u go. simple to install just plug in your external drive to pogo then you can access it every where!!i like it. the only downside is when im trying to download from the other end like movies it takes me an hour to download. maybe its the internet speed but no big deal. the rest of the stuff only minimal time to download like pic, documents etc. i like it. use your smartphone to view your file without adding more gigs to your phone. it was a great thing to have. i will recommend this product!!
The pogo plug works great. was delivered in a timely fashion. went on sale 12 hours after i bought it and i was refunded the difference which i appreciate.
Great device but....12/13/2010
This is a great device for someone who has use for it; it is easy to use and easy to set up. The only down side in my point of view is that, the external drive/s or thumb drive/s is constantly active (or on). There should be a somewhat sleep mode feature. In the end it is a safe and easy to use device.
Love it /Hate it12/5/2010
This is a great concept. I had problems with a Buffalo linkstation and I figured I could kill two birds with one stone by setting up a redundant back-up system with multiple drives and also have a web based drive for distant relatives to access pic's, etc... Great idea right? Wrong. Drives keep disappearing and I have rebooted the Pogo 5 times to wake them back up. Also loses the shares that are set up too. I would not even attempt to stream from the drives either as this seems to be buggy and slow and you need the drives enabled for this and this seemed to cause my drives to be lost. I'm pretty bummed right now as I really wanted this to work.
I was surprised it worked so good!12/4/2010
I had never heard of pogoplug til I saw it on Buy.com at a sale price. I was looking into cloud solutions and so thought why not check it out. So far, I have been pleasantly surprised at how good it works. For what I needed (access to many files from wherever I am)it seems to be an adequate solution. Added plus of having access to hundreds of GBs of music and picture files from my Android phone. Only thing, it takes a few days to process if you put lots of file on it as I did. That can be a little disconcerting it you're not expecting it.
Nice hardware, flimsy software/firmware11/15/2010
I was thrilled to get this one at the launch day. Installation was quite easy. However, it is not performing well as it should. Pros: - Easy to install - Hard Drives recognized and ready to use in less than a minute (see cons too) - Very good speed with wired connection. - Excellent for storage purpose only if you are using NTFS/FAT32 formated hard drives. - iPhone app - Good only for playing mp3 files (see cons) Cons: - Hard Drives formated with native Mac OSx (GUID Partition Table) doesn't work/recognized. - Seagate Free Agent Theater+ recognize it as a Media Server, but would not load a single media file from it. - iPhone app is a joke. I could not play single movie file (different formats such as AVI, MP4, MPEG3, ISO, MKV and so on...) - No movie playback even on PC, Only still image of the first frame of movies shows on the screen. - Very bad quality image slide show on the PC (did not bother to try on Mac) - Wireless connection drops speed frequently. Other thoughts: I wish it worked as it was supposed to be. If you are using a MAC native formated drive, forget it unless you want to move your data from it and reformat with different partition table format. Together with web and iPhone app, this could be a perfect gadget to add to your shelf. However, firmware/software, iPhone app which frequently crashes in iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4 need to be fixed. At this point I would not recommend this to anybody unless they fix it. What's great about it: Price and hardware What's not so great: Software/Firmware and iPhone App. Update: I heard last week from pogplug support that they issued a new firmware fixing the Mac formated drive issue.
