This is a really good product. Easily installs in just a matter of minutes. You can access it from anywhere via PC or apps for phones or tablets. Recently used the app by a pool in Mexico to stream music and it worked really well! You can even send out links to share folders and files. PC is best for adding, moving and maintaining though. Apps still need a little tweaking to be more friendly but it's nice that it will automatically back up new files (pictures, music, etc.) you add to you phone or tablet. You can even set up your PC to back up as well. You can have different files types back up to different locations. If you like to have access to your files from anywhere, even on the go, this is a great product for you. There is no monthly fee and it is totally YOUR cloud. I have 4TB connected and it purrs along just fine. Just remember though that you can only up/down load files as fast as your slowest connection. You may be on a 50 MB pipe at work but if your PoGo is only residing on a 5MB pipe, you will only be able to up/download at 5 MB max. I've bought a couple of these for friends who take lots of photos so they always have access to them.

There's a trick to get it to connect to the network. It has something to do with reconfiguring my modem. Then you have to connect and restart several times each time you want to use it or something like that. I can't remember now because I got so frustrated with it after finally getting it to connect then it would disconnect randomly. The idea is great though.
