Introduction

Seagate Personal Cloud 2-Bay Consumer NAS Review 01 | TweakTown.com

With many NAS solutions today offering cloud access, Seagate has come to market with a solution built from the ground up as personal media storage. The Personal Cloud comes to market available in several configurations including single bay solutions up to 5TB, and dual bay configurations up to 8TB.

The Seagate Personal Cloud allows users to manage and organize their media, whether it is video, music or documents all-in-one central location within your home. The Personal Cloud can also be scheduled to backup your Windows and OS X based computers automatically, along with the ability to connect and backup your cloud services such as Google Drive, Dropbox and Sdrive.

In addition to backup up your devices, the Personal cloud is DLNA ready allowing users to stream their media to compatible smart TVs, gaming consoles and even Roku or Chromecast. If you want to access your content on the go, that too can be done via the Seagate Access or the Media App available on iOS, Android, Windows 8 and Amazon Kindle.

For anyone that has used a Seagate NAS appliance in the past, you know that NAS OS 4 is the operating system onboard these appliances, the version used during testing today is 4.1.5.13.

The specifications are rather simple and show that the Personal cloud requires Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari and is compatible with Windows 7,8 and Vista along with OS X 10.7 and later. Remote access is available on iOS and Android smartphones along with Desktop and Mac PCs.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
