Seagate pretty much made the hack firmware unnecessary with it's latest updates. In my opinion that is.
That's good to know, thanks. I'll take a look at what the new firmware does. I'd rather use stock firmware if they did it right, but they've positioned the Satellite as a media streamer for tablets and the old firmware strikes me as actually hostile for anything like use as a wireless NAS.
Quote from blackadder :
Hasn't it been $99 for a while - at least on amazon.?
Well, $129.00 currently, and that's a recent drop. It's spent most of it's time at or close to $179 except for a ~10-day period around the beginning.of December.
So, no, $99 hasn't been a regular price.
With the introduction of the newer 1GB model[amazon.com] that has taken the old $199.99 price point from this Satellite, I don't know what their plans are or what the 500GB street price will be going forward. It could be close to EOL.
