5 SEA­GATE CEN­TRAL

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets -

Sea­gate, $369 (4TB) sea­gate.com/au ★★★★ House­holds with mul­ti­ple lap­tops, tablets and smart­phones should ap­pre­ci­ate Sea­gate’s so­lu­tion that of­fers up to four ter­abytes of net­work-con­nected stor­age. The Cen­tral drive is a large but low-pro­file black box that con­nects to a house­hold router and, dur­ing set-up, a com­puter. The Cen­tral unit can au­to­mat­i­cally back up files, and al­low those files to be ac­cessed or streamed through the Sea­gate Me­dia app on any in­ter­net-con­nected de­vice, in­clud­ing smartTVs. For such a large de­vice, it’s risky to rely on just one in­ter­nal hard drive, but the Sea­gate Cen­tral could solve an en­tire home’s backup is­sues.
