WHO NEEDS WIRES

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

The new Sea­gate Wire­less Plus looks like any other ex­ter­nal hard drive from the com­pany. It is small enough to fit in­side your coat pocket if needed, though it needs a strip dock to con­nect to the USB ca­ble. The de­vice cre­ates a wi-fi net­work of its own to con­nect. While you can copy files to the de­vice us­ing the USB, to ac­cess the con­tent from an iOS or An­droid de­vice you will need to down­load the Sea­gate Me­dia app.

Once the app is down­loaded just link your phone or tablet to the Sea­gate Wi-Fi and you are ready to go. The app has dif­fer­ent fold­ers for the files on the 1TB hard drive and you can play them di­rectly on mo­bile with­out any buf­fer­ing. We tried link­ing up to three de­vices and faced no is­sues. Use this as a file dump which you can ac­cess from all de­vices within a 30-me­tre range. Really, this is the fu­ture.
