Seagate purchased Lacie back in 2012, and the Fuel is pretty much a rebranded Seagate Wireless Plus. I also own a Wireless Plus and can use it for about 7 hours on one charge, but for some reason the Fuel while rated at 10 hours only last 4 hours! You would think the Fuel would get a better batter as its a little bigger than the Wireless Plus. One thing to note is there is a new version of the Seagate Media app for iOS 7, looks nice, but things are moved around vs. the old app. Lacie has also dropped the DC charging port found on the Wireless Plus, so it only charges via USB. I like that they did this as its one less cable to carry.
PRO: Great way to stream movies to tablets, 2 TB of storage! CON: Poor battery life vs. Seagate Wireless Plus
Please fix the battery life issue, 4 hours is a joke when its rated for 10 hours!
I ordered this product because I was sick and tired of portable DVD players & toting around DVDs in the car. I used this product on a 5 hour trip with my family along with 2 Android tablets for my kids to watch all their MP4 movies. We don't have to worry about the internal memory of the tablets to store movies! I'm cheep so I wasn't willing to fork over the money to buy all new movies in MP4 format so I went through all the kids DVD's and ripped them... it took a long time but now that it is done we don't have do mess with disks getting scratched etc. For now we are only using the Fuel for our mobile devices but in the future when we upgrade to a smart TV I believe we should be able to stream all our movies to that as well. We have Google Chromecast but currently the ap the Fuel uses is not setup to work with it. Not sure if I should mention this in the review for the hardware or not but as far as I'm concerned they work hand in hand. On the ap when selecting movies there is a place...
Great design, lightweight, huge capacity, but even on power within one foot of iPad fourth gen the wifi playback freezes often -- sometimes so long that reboot and restart play is required. Need to fix this.
