Pogoplug Series 4 review

 

Pogoplug recently joined the cloud storage craze, and now offers 5GB of free storage to everyone in a service similar to Dropbox, Box, iCloud, and SkyDrive. Before the cloud became a buzzword, however, Pogoplug was a hardware company, and the new...

High-speed I/O thanks to SATA and USB 3.0 ports ; Small and light form factor ; Very easy setup

Irritating, buggy software ; Unreliable video streaming ; Low-res photo and video viewing ; Poorly-designed eject button

A $99.95 home server to replace your Dropbox — is it up to the task?

Pogoplug Series 4

 

The Series 4 supports NTFS, FAT, HFS+, EXT2, and EXT3 drive formats and works with Windows XP to Windows 7 and Mac OS 10.6.6 or higher. It works with most Web browsers, including IE8 and IE9, Mozilla Firefox 6, Apple Safari 5, and Google Chrome....

Easy setup. Affordable. Good port selection

Some video playback issues. Can't upload entire folders via the Web interface. Slow video transcoding

The Pogoplug Series 4 is a neat little device that lets you share your music, movies, photos and other files from your own personal cloud while your data stays safe at home.

Pogoplug Series 4 review

 

The Pogoplug website portal where you upload, download, share, and view files is capable enough to get the task done. You use an email address and a password to log on. Of course, you're limited to the speed of your connection, but if you connect from...

Since the danger that your Pogoplug might morph into an unreachable box has vanished, I can recommend it without reservation as a stress-free way to access and share files across the Internet without actually storing them online. The portal would...

Great Product, POOR POOR Customer Servic

 

Orderring was easy, but then I get an e-mail from JR saying it is back orderred and I won\'t get it. Being it was a holiday present I scrambled and ordered from a different vendor, albeit at a lesser price. Surprisingly I received both on the same day....

Ambitious device... works somewhat well

 

Overall, the software still needs a quite a bit of work. However, the core functions work, and it's pretty easy for non-technical users, especially the setup. The pogoplug is pretty ambitious... if the software didn't have so many bugs, I'd be...

Far simpler to setup than I expected, especially considering it is doing some complicated router tunneling ; Web interface does allow quite a few functions ; Pogoplug device allows access via SSH for the geeks among us ; The Windows companion backup...

Mass upload via web application is a bit wonky ; The Windows companion backup software has a few issues. Video backup using the Windows backup software spins for hours, seemingly doing nothing. Windows backup software also doesn't seem to allow backup...
