Pogoplug allows you to build your own cloud-in-the-basement solution in literally no time. Just plugin your external drive, register on their website and you're done. Your files are accessible via any web browser and also from your smartphone/tablet (Android and iOS apps are free). Pros: + Works perfectly as you iPhone photo backup system and catalog; the timeline browsing is perfect for finding some photos you just thought of, but already had to remove from your phone to free up some space. Cons: - The device is not extremely fast; you may definitely wish for a bit faster browsing and access to your files; not a big problem unless you're very impatient. - The only way to access your files is through the my.pogoplug.com website; this may make you a bit uneasy about the security/privacy of the solution. - This is NOT (at least it wasn't in my case) the E02 model which is ArchLinux capable. It's more like the P22 model (although it doesn't say it anywhere on the device); you only get 128MB of ram and 800 MHz CPU. Probably not enough to use it for anything else than the built-in, optimized software. To be fair: I didn't try putting the ArchLinux on it. I found it hits the limits of the hardware on the E02 (pink) model. Overall at this price point you can't go wrong. At the very least you get an automatic mobile device photo backup system, which works very well.
If you know pogoplug, like it, and want to have user shares, this is the device for you. Also, its an E-02 model, so you should be able to install arch linux if you don't like the onboard firmware.
If you want a custom look for your client look this is not a solution.
This product has been so useful already. Needed to share 200MB worth of powerpoint presentaion and video files with a international business partner... way too big for email and i dont have an FTP server... granted access to our business partner to access the PogoPlug Biz and he got everything he needed fast and his presentaiton went off without a hitch!! paid for itself in the first 3 days!
