Seagate Wireless Mobile Portable Hard Drive Review – Stream Wirelessly to iPhone iPad Android

February 26, 2017 Jon 27 Comments

Buy it on Amazon – http://lon.tv/t3yv0 (affiliate link)

This external Seagate hard drive also doubles as a battery powered wireless server for mobile devices. Media and other files can be loaded into the drive wirelessly or via a direct connection via USB.

It supports iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android, Kindle Fire, and Windows devices.

The drive can support up to three users simultaneously and will also extend an internet connection through the drive so you can still access the web while connected to it.

It is basic transportation but it works well. The app is a little rough around the edges (especially when it comes to photo browsing) but it works adequately enough to stream videos. An onboard battery can power the device for 5-6 hours.

There is also a web server built into the hard drive which can access most of the media without the need for the app on any device.

Overall this is a good value for what it is.

    First fair video of ssd vs hdd i see

    First thing is first SSD loads faster. How? Coz of It's speed? No, It doesn't define that all well. HDD have 100-150MB/s sequential and only 1MB/s for 4K read which is too much slower and on the other side SSD or SSHD(same as they have SSD portion also) have 150 above sequential and above 20MB/s 4K read. Boot uses uses only ~1GB RAM, so boot time usually depends on 4K Read (Sequential doesn't matter much as boot will not use full capacity since the data files are too many and scattered on disc.) So, get good SSD with faster 4K read(not write) speeds to get faster boot up. For Heavy Gameloads or softwares go for SSD with Fast read too 😀

    Yup, this is it! My i5 with the regular HDD used to take something around 1 minute to load Windows 7. With SSD it takes 12 seconds. It's insane!
