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.
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.
This new backup service looks pretty promising, but it's the free Pogoplug Classic (value: $49.95) that really seals the deal.
The Toshiba Canvio Connect has some good excuses for you to get it.
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.
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.
This Cheapskate exclusive will save you more than 20 percent on a yearlong subscription to the service, which gives you all the cloud space you can eat.
Why settle for one deal when you can get three? But hurry up: two of them have the potential to sell out.
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.
Normally the company offers only 5GB, but Cheapskate readers get double the space! Upload, share, and stream files via your PCs and mobile devices.
