Seagate GoFlex Satellite Review!!

Okay, I admit I am a techie, geek...whatever your word of choice to describe a computer/technology nut. So, when given the opportunity to review an amazing new product from Seagate, I was beyond happy :) However, you don't have to be a geek to enjoy the item I received; read on to discover how to become a Chief Home Officer!!

I received the GoFlex Satellite for review. The Satellite is very unique. It is an external hard drive that will stream wirelessly to your iPod, iPhone, Smartphone, Tablet, etc. I was excited about trying this out, and got started right away. The first step was to hook it up to my Mac, via USB.

Next, I started loading the Satellite with movies, music and photos. When you access the drive via your device, the files are arranged by type, but I also created folders to keep it organized while adding, rather than just having a jumbled mess. (Yes, I'm a neat freak too :)

The drive will hold any type of file, and is 500GB, so you don't have to worry about overloading it. Obviously, your device may only play certain files, so check what format you need before loading the Satellite. Once I had some movies added, I disconnected the Satellite, powered it up, and waited a few seconds for the wireless to start up. 
To access the files on the Satellite, you simply connect to the GoFlex Satellite wireless on your device. 

Once connected, pull up your browser and it automatically takes you to your personal multimedia theater!

Watch this short video for a demonstration:

At this point, you can watch movies, listen to music, or browse pictures from your device of choice. It's literally a theater at your fingertips, whether you're in the car, on a plane, or sitting at the restaurant waiting for your meal! The Satellite will stream to up to 3 devices at once, so you can scroll through family photos while your kids are watching Lassie. It is extremely compact, and literally fits in my purse. Never be bored again when you have a Satellite with you!
I was really amazed and impressed with the GoFlex Satellite, and recommend it to any Mom on-the-go! This would make an awesome gift for Mother's Day in a couple weeks; you can fin more information or order online at!
