Even top tablet computers will only hold 64 gigabytes of content; far from the terabyte promises of a laptop.
For those who need more space for movies, TV shows, apps, photos and email, Seagate has developed a cunning technological solution.
The Seagate GoFlex Satellite is a portable hard drive that looks standard, if a bit thick. It comes in a glossy black package with cords to charge it and connect it to a PC or Mac.
Users can plug this hard drive into a computer to drag and drop favourite files to it. Alternatively, free Media Sync software will find content to add to the hard drive.
Users must also download the GoFlex Media app from their app store of choice - Apple or Google.
Once both devices are loaded, the hard drive must be turned on to start broadcasting a wireless signal to which the tablet can connect. Media can then be wirelessly streamed from the hard drive on to the tablet's screen, letting users carry a library of movies or other media with them.
The GoFlex Media app's menu is easy to use and is divided into categories such as Videos, Photos, Music and Documents.
This broadcasting hard drive offers up to five hours of use per charge, though its staying power will depend on your use.
It's also worth noting that our test unit struggled to talk to the iPad on several occasions. In short, this device is prone to the same reception drop-outs as any wireless gadget.
Setting it up is easier than you might expect of a streaming device, however, and Seagate deserves kudos for making it simple.

Seagate today unveiled a new Android app that provides a seamless wireless connection to 500GB of storage for streaming up to 300 HD videos from the company's GoFlex range of external storage devices. Previously, the functionality was available on Android tablets and phones by using the device's browser, but now the experience is enhanced through the seamless connectivity and added features of the GoFlex Media App for Android.
Three months ago, Seagate introduced the GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage line of products, available worldwide for $200. It's the first battery-powered HDD to wirelessly connect to any Wi-Fi-enabled device, including Android and iOS devices. GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage is capable of providing hours of entertainment for up to three connections. The lithium polymer battery has a stand-by battery life of up to 25 hours and delivers up to five hours of continuously streaming video.
The free GoFlex Media App – available on the Android Market and iTunes – wirelessly connects to the GoFlex Satellite drive. To help with extending battery life, the free GoFlex Media App for Android provides a progressive download feature, which temporarily loads the video on the device, allowing the drive to go into stand-by mode. The GoFlex Media App for Android has the following features:
- Access your media library stored on the GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage device wherever you are – no Internet or wires required.
- Stream HD videos and begin playback in an instant.
- Enjoy music and video collections, photo albums, and even review documents.
- Automatically organizes all your digital media into videos, photos, music, and document folders.
'Seagate's line of GoFlex external storage has always been about enabling flexibility and part of this flexibility is being OS agnostic,' Patrick Connolly, vice president and general manager for Seagate retail product group, said in a statement. 'Seagate GoFlex Satellite mobile wireless storage continues with this theme of flexibility by providing added storage to mobile devices where there may not be a physical port to connect a cable. An Android supported app had been part of our development plans for the product from the very start. We are now pleased to offer the new GoFlex Media App from the Android Market.'
