I know what you mean but I think I said that about 5 times last year. Even worse if it is less than $5.

Why? You are accessing it over the internet. So you will be restrained by upload speed, not hard drive speed.
You're right. But I set it up as local hard drive in my PC and shared within home network. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I do the same - when people say they run out of space on their phone because of all the music they have I just laugh and tell them about Google Play Music Manager... and then they think its too hard.
Yeah, but unless you find some open wifi, you're also consuming cellular data mins too, right? The cloud has its downside too.

No deal is truly slick if the device stops working tomorrow when a different slick deal would keep working past its company's demise.

Knowledge is a good thing.

Sprint unlimited Data is still a beautiful thing, even if LTE isn't exactly there... Heck I still get WiMax

True, do you know of something that will work past a companies demise? The idea of streaming my media from a local device through a personal HD is appealing to me.

Damn, I'm looking for 'with USB 3.0' one.
Thanks, anyway.
FYI - USB 3.0 isn't really useful. The CPU is not fast enough.

Can you explain why?

If the popgoplug device is not dependent on the pogoplug company's cloud, why would the end of the pogoplug company harm the pogoplug device?
if you use their web interface or apps, then it goes through their web service. like a redirect.

but if I remember correctly the company promised to release their code if they go belly up.

now, you can only trust them that they will do this.


but since this thing is so cheap and can easily be repurposed to do other stuff, it's not a big deal.

be careful. my pogoplug device corrupted 2 of my external drives. some data is lost. I didn't unplug my drives at all. Just moving data around. I don't believe it was fast enough thru IP versus USB directly on your computer.

Just got the E02 up and running from last week's deal using the free Pogoplug service. Running two TBs from two portable hard drives. Mostly for my large music collection. Shows up fine on the smartphone app and plays albums in order when using the "Files" option. Music files play without stuttering but with a couple of second lag, presumably to access the file on the drive.

I have no idea why these devices get slagged in these forums sometimes, I suspect it is from those who put linux on them, and give no credence to those who just want to use the service. With the smartphone apps the service brings cloud music storage from x number of GBs on dropbox or box to multiple TBs.

The E02 would be better than this if you have room for a larger device and multiple drives, but if you just want to plug in one portable drive and drop in an SD card with your current favorites this would be fine.

Only if you made the tragic decision to go with ATT or Verizon. Sprint unlimited has not complained when I have sailed past what would have been caps on ATT or Verizon.

To this day I don't why people pay higher rates for less bandwidth.

Sprint FTW and Ting might just be better.
