    How many people would buy a Seagate wireless hard drive for their iDevice?

    I've been researching external storage options for my iPad 3, and i ran across an ad for the Wireless Plus, which has a storage capacity of 1 terabyte, and can be accessed by the iPad with the accompanying app which is free in the app store. However, since this is a relatively new innovation, the cost factors in at around $200 USD. How many would buy this for their device?

    As an added note, USB 3.0 connectivity is included for those that use PCs to transfer media, so there is not the limitation of being confined to using iTunes since the app uses your device's wireless connection to read the data on the drive. MODERATED: No external links!!!!!

    It's a reasonable price since it has storage, plus wifi and USB 3.0. I have a similar device called the gauntlet node. It is an enclosure that you can put your own 2.5 inch drive into.

    I was looking at buying a sea gate drive a while back for my iPad. I was hoping more companies would sell something like this besides debate. I was looking at tigerdirect.com as they had some good prices. I will hold back until my bills are paid first

    I don't think I'd ever use a Seagate, simply because you've been pushing them so hard; this must be the 4th or 5th post advertising them, where the mods have had to remove a link to where (I suspect) the OP is selling them.
    You had your entire life to prepare for today.

    Interesting that you would automatically go to the assumption that I must be selling them because I am "pushing them so hard" as you say.

    Fact of the matter is, I am not now, nor have I ever been a Seagate salesman, or any other type of sales person, for that matter. The fact that I included a link that was removed was due to my ignorance about the rules of this forum, even though the app includes a function to insert links (which I find a bit odd)

    The link I included was to the Seagate website where one could check out the specs for themselves.

    Furthermore, I don't even own one yet, as I'm waiting for them to come down in price before I buy one, but it's definitely on my wish list.

    Good evening members. The point of this thread is to "discuss" Seagate. Keep the tone civil please.

    Thank you.

    Well, to return to the discussion at hand, I can only think of one reason for not buying Seagate, and that's if any equivalent from Western Digital was a bit cheaper.

    Both companies make decent products and I wouldn't look past them for alternatives.

    As a system builder since '97 I agree with you that failing owning a Seagate, I would use a western digital. Both products have similar warranties as well. My very first system I used a Maxtor, which failed within two years, but every Seagate I've used is still functional, as well as the Western Digital drives I've installed. No complaints about WDs, I just have had really good luck with Seagate, so it's my personal preference.

    😊

    Extremely interesting article, sir! Esp regarding the hybrid drives set to come out in 2014.

    I've been wondering, since flash technology has been solid-state all along why the industry hasn't gone toward Solid state for desktops way before now. It looks like a possibility that very soon, we'll see SSD for the iPad expand to rival that of laptop and desktop units in terms of storage capacity.

    Personally, I don't care for cloud-storage solutions, so I will always be looking for local storage options that afford me more room at a budget price, with reliability being a major factor.
