Trigger pulled. At that price, it's too good to pass up.

These are great aside from the crap stock firmware. I have one running on ArchLinuxArm and I love it. Use it for streaming media through my LAN with minidlna.

This coupon code is great. But this drive sucks. USB 2.0, 5400rpm, 2.5 stars on amazon

You could get a newer, 4star, USB 3.0 drive (although w/o network connection) for about the same price (probably cheaper if you factor in shipping w/ prime).

@sharpjm: That network thing is kind of a big deal. Especially when you consider that is allows you to access files from outside your network. That is the entire purpose of this model, so everyone on the network can access it without a computer always having to be on. Also with a gigabit connection does it really matter that it's USB 2.0?

Best Buy is no longer allowing the coupon codes to be used apparently. So now the drive is $149.99.

Coupon just worked for me. It was $125 and change after tax.

@mahali: You're totally right. I tried a different browser and it worked. I think the Chrome plugin 'Ghostery' had blocked my ability to click the button.

@idontkn1: The point is that the network feature of the drive works poorly, at best - as shown in the reviews on amazon. Many routers these days have USB ports capable of hosting a USB based network drive or the alternative is to set up a shared drive on a hard-wired PC that allows all of your network computers to access it.

@toolzb: I just tried it and it still works.

I got one, hope I don't regret it

Coupon is dead. Deal is still $149.99, pre-tax

been running one of these for about two years, and it's one of my best purchases. It works the way it's supposed to, and you can pop the drive in and out of the caddy and swap with other seagate freeagent goflex externals. You can also plug another external (or printer) into the USB port on the base unit for either more storage or wireless networking of a printer that doesn't have it's own wifi.

The Promo Code changed, but the deal is still available. Check the home page for the new code. Today it's RECYCLE23

Thanks for the updated discount code! I skipped this yesterday, but realized that I need to shift one of my old external drives to my son's new place so he won't be completely without backups. I really like the network feature-- thanks for pointing that out.

@asillyname: Thank you for the new code, which drops it to $115.49 - ordered yesterday at $116.99.

Now the new code is PROTECT24 for 24% off ($36) so it's even cheaper.

Exactly what I need: plenty of storage and network interface. Thanks for posting, the most recent code is working. Just paid $121.97 for it, out the door.

Received this last week. Setup was simple. It has a nice feature where you can access your files from off your network. I have this device behind 2 firewalls so the configuration was a bit tricky, but it's working great. Plus they have an app for my iPhone so I can access my movies now from wherever and don't have to have them taking up room on my phone.

So, the bitching about it being USB 2.0 and not 3.0 is not relevant. The drive has NO usb connectivity to a PC. It has a USB port, which allows you to plug in another USB hard drive or a memory stick for additional network-accessible storage. But that USB port cannot be used to connect the drive to a PC.

The biggest gripe about this is Seagate wants you to register the device on the web. It must have a unique name across the entire planet, which is annoying. This is so it can be accessed from the Internet. This feature can be turned off after the device is registered.

The problem most people are having is that any router worth its salt blocks this device from connecting to the web. I tried to get this to work for hours, until I disabled the firewall in my router. Then immediately it worked and I registered. That done, I disabled the internet connection, and re-enabled the firewall. After that hassle, it's fast and works great!

Hi.... is there a new promo code?
