Storage capabilities of tablets like Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab are very limited, even at 64GB. What if you want to access a huge collection of your media library containing music, movies, documents and photos?
Thanks to my officemate Charles, he introduced me to Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage. It's basically a portable external hard drive that streams media over WiFi to three (3) WiFi enabled devices at the same time.
GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage specifications:
- Automatically sync media and documents from your PC or Mac® computer
- 500GB of storage capacity
- Up to 5 hours battery life2
- Up to 25 hours standby time2
- 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi delivers reliable skip-free streaming
- Wi-Fi range of more than 30 feet
Not only it is able to be used by 3 different devices at the same time, but it also allows the viewing of different files in each device. It's compatible with a desktop/laptop or smarthphone and can be run with either Windows or Mac.
I think this is a great gadget for families who love watching movies and sharing photos or music with one another. Priced at $199.99, I am thinking if my sister and I can share the cost of purchasing one and then use it when we're at home. That way, we get to watch different videos using two iPads/laptop.
Reviews say the device is great, but still has some improvement areas in terms of implementation. You may read it here and here.
Do you know any other gadget at a lower price that is capable of doing the same functionality? Or do you own for yourself? Lemme know via comment below.
