Ordered two of the PogoPlugs believing they would not offer a product that didn't work. I was amazed at how wrong I was. Neither of the devices worked with a myriad of USB thumbdrives or external hard drives. Out of about 30 tries I had one recognition of a drive and it would not show of using the external software. Tech Support is only via email which was also very inconvenient. Stay away, stay warned! Returned the same day received, I have rarely seen so disappointing a product.

-Lou quote

I was extremely excited to try this out. I am a digital pack rat and thought this interface would make organizing the multiple hard drives I carry around to be a snap. The packaging was nice and the instructions - well they evoked an easy setup. It was - then it went downhill. I have only plugged in one 500gb drive, holding 360gb of data. Went to bed expecting the drive to be fully read, thumbnails ready, roaring to go this morning. It is as slow as a frozen turtle! Unbelievably slow in fact. The web interface is a little quicker than the pogoplug software running on my network. I have a very fast connection up and a decent one down and none of the other devices on the network are experiencing any problems. I even disconnected everything except this device and hopped onto my backup internet connection (a t-1 WAN) and still slowwwww. I am considering sending it back or turning it into a web server with an SSD.
