With all of this cloud talk, between iCloud, Music by Google, and now even Best Buy’s Music Cloud it can get confusing on what service to use. Many people aren’t there yet with trusting corporate clouds either. There is a lot of concern about privacy, piracy, drm and streaming. Seagate has an answer for all of those questions.
The Seagate GoFlex Satellite is a 500gb personal cloud for you to take on the go wherever you go. All of your music, movies, videos and files can be stored on the Seagate GoFlex Satellite. It’s essentially a wireless portable hard drive.

The GoFlex Satellite creates your own personal wifi network between the GoFlex Satellite and your computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. You don’t even need an internet connection, so as Greg says even in the desert you can stream your music, your videos and your files on your device.
We checked with Seagates main competitor Western Digital who said they don’t have a wireless product at this time and that the cost wouldn’t be right. How’s $199 sound. Just last year you would have paid close to that for a regular corded portable hard drive with half a terrabyte of space. Now you get 500gb and it’s wireless.
One of the other great features is you can connect up to 3 wifi enabled devices to your Seagate GoFlex Satellite which makes it just as useful at home or in the office as it is on the go. It’s extremely easy to set up, just fill it, charge it and enjoy it.
The Seagate GoFlex Satellite provides up to 5 hours of use on the rechargeable battery with up to 25 hours of standby time. It charges via USB port as well which means any of your usb back up chargers will power it and of course at home or in the office you can use it and charge it simultaneously.
