The Pogoplug Series 4 is 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. While many may find it redundant with cloud storage services, the Series 4 is easily the best version of the Pogoplug to date.
The Pogoplug Pro adds Wi-Fi and costs $30 less than its predecessor, and remains a unique and easy-to-set-up device for sharing files online. However, many of its higher-end features (printing, media streaming) remain buggy and unreliable.
If you're eager to try out Pogoplug PC, the Toshiba Canvio Connect is a good buy, especially if your computer supports USB 3.0. Otherwise, keep looking for better deals.
With more USB ports and a few new features, the new Pogoplug remains a unique and relatively easy way to share files online. However, its media-streaming features leave something to be desired.
Toshiba announces the shipment of the Canvio Connect USB 3.0 portable drive, including a lifetime subscription to Pogoplug for personal cloud storage on the host computer.
This new backup service looks pretty promising, but it's the free Pogoplug Classic (value: $49.95) that really seals the deal.
The Pogoplug provides a quick and easy way to share files from any USB storage device to users on a home network or over the Internet.

Why settle for one deal when you can get three? But hurry up: two of them have the potential to sell out.
Feel like streaming music, photos, and video on the go but don't want to upload it to someone else's cloud? The Pogoplug Video turns your own hard drives into online-sharable media libraries.
Or get a Pogoplug Classic for about the same price. Both gizmos make it easy to add Web- and mobile-accessible storage to your home network.
