The Personal Cloud from Seagate is essentially a NAS system, but it is not marketed as such. Aimed at families, it allows users to store all their files in a central location and access them anywhere. With plug-and-play functionality, you simply attach the Personal Cloud to your router via an Ethernet cable and, after a painless setup, the Personal Cloud is now accessible on your network.
Why then should a consumer consider the Seagate Personal Cloud 2-Bay? With 2x 4TB HDDs hidden away within the device there is certainly ample storage (with the choice for RAID 0 or RAID 1 configurations, too) but perhaps the most interesting features are the remote access options and mobile backup functionality. I shall explore the Personal Cloud and see if it is worth a buy.
