"Very poor implementation with iPad"1.0 starson by DOBM
Pros: Slightly better than having no external drive at all, but only just.
Cons: The WiFi connection is not fast enough when trying to play HD movie content, the picture & sound keep stalling, with no sign of a buffer being used.
The free App does not remember what's on the drive and has to rebuild it's contents every time you go
Summary: One of the most poorly software implemented products I have ever found. Barely usable in it's current build. Avoid it until some major rework is made.The problems I have identified nearly all apply to the Goflex Media App for iPad/iPhone. I have found that the product works much better, including streaming of HD movies, when using Safari web browser, rather than the App itself.

Updated on May 28, 2012*UPDATE* The new firmware makes the device very usable at last. Shame it wasn't this good to start with as they would have sold tons of them. Thumbs-up to Seagate who have stood by their product and have obviously invested heavily in improving it at no additional cost to purchasers.
