This small, unassuming box has ports for a variety of inputs, including USB 2.0 and 3.0, SD, and even 2.5" SATA drives. Plug a hard drive, memory card or flash drive into one of them, and your files are instantly available over the internet via Pogo's "personal cloud." While the Pogoplug Series 4 may lack a lot of the high-end features of other network drives. it makes up for it with simple sharing options and mobile device access.

A cleverly simple device for getting files and media from your hard drive, USB drive, or SD card online and making them shareable with smartphones, tablets, and PCs ... the best version of the Pogoplug to date.

Overall, the Pogoplug Series 4 is worthy of the money only if you plan to use a USB 3.0 or USM drive and only if you don't mind significantly slower writes than reads.

Pogoplug is a solid option for those who’d rather roll their own clouds than use commercially available services, so long as you can deal with some niggling software issues.

I wish I had more reasons to use it. Originally my plan was to use it to store movies, music and photos and simply stream them to my laptop, iPhone, iPad and PS3. IT'S SO SLOOOWWWW though. I am a torrentter and it does work for that...sometimes. Other times it just makes the download super slow...
