"Good, but rough around the edges."3.0 starson by wilback
Pros: Lots of usb ports, with support for HDD and flash drives.
Linux kernel can be hacked to add new features, with strong hacker support
Cons: Web integration not robust nor intuitive, as the review states
This is not a NAS device, e.g., samba support is not built-in
Pogoplug's utilities that make pogoplug look like drives on your PC are resource hogs and are too complicated.
Summary: I bought this looking for a cheap NAS device that would let me also access my files outside my local network. As a NAS device it's inadequate without hacking (see http://www.plugapps.com/index.php5?title=Main_Page and http://openplug.org/ ). It does a good job for just accessing your files on the internet. I've also had considerable problems with high speed transfers suddenly resetting and dying. This occurs with the pogoplug's software and with ftp addons, and I never see this problem with other NAS-type boxes on my network.
As the review states, the web interface is not very well thought out. Because pogoplug believes the usual samba network connection to drives was too complicated for the average user, they make you install their own utility to make the pogoplug's drives look like local drives on your PC. To me, it seemed like overkill and yet another background task eating up my machine's resources.
If you're looking for a cheap NAS box, look elsewhere.
