I have the GoFlex Satellite, and as a place to hold lots of videos and music to play on the iPad without hogging the iPad's memory (or lack of it) it is great. Still has some design problems with how it organizes video files that make finding, for instance, the episode of a TV series you want, but when it sends the episode to your iPad for viewing, it looks just great. Of course, I got mine for free from the Amazon Vine Program. For $199 retail, I wouldn't buy it. For $79, I would.
