These seem to be the pink b01 with the sata port on board for those who wish to mod them.

What type of mod? TIA.

Yes, info please...

Is it true that all the PogoPlugs except the OFFICE one allow only one person to connect at a time?
Thanks

A PLX OXNAS 782x based system, probable a Cloud Engines Pogoplug Pro, V3 or B01 (P01/P21/P25/B01/B02/B03/B04) Willingness to crack that casing open. A blank, or to-be-blanked SATA HDD. An eSATA dock/housing (preferably with USB also) & an eSATA to SATA adapter (or you can ghetto rig, but that's not a pretty solution) A linux system (or vm, or live cd/usb) in order to use the commands, scripts & files.

WOW! Thanks for posting this! I just bought two more.

I bought a POGO-B01 a year ago and have been using it with a laptop harddrive connected through the internal SATA connector. It was an easy mod. Works wonderfully as a small linux server. Small, quiet, cool, and low power.

Also search online for things like "POGO-B01 linux", etc. for more on what you can do with these.

For example http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv6/pogoplug-provideov3

I have the "Pro", it's also on sale for $20

For those who have an aversion to the pink

nah this black p21 is the same thing as the pink b01.

No I have these, and while I haven't tried more than a few people at a time, I almost always have 3 people using my pogo network (for personal / business filesharing).

I think there are some major CPU horsepower bottlenecks (Wouldn't support video streaming on a very large scale)

but if you're looking to own your own dropbox without any recurring fees, I don't see anything simpler or easier.

I'll be picking up a few more of these today.

Schmide said:   These seem to be the pink b01 with the sata port on board for those who wish to mod them.

Actually, I've gotten a pretty mixed bag with these. I can't tell if they're the SATA or not, but all of these I've picked up recently have been missing the SATA port entirely.

Usually there's a pattern or a manufacturer date you can use with consumer electronics to figure this out, but so far I haven't seen any information.

(Just saying I wouldn't buy this hoping for a SATA port, they seem to have sold out already in my experience)

This is a far better choice if you are looking for more features

They seem to be shipping with E02 guts inside, so this is the same as the black Pro model.

This model has higher RAM making it more attractive-512mb

Yes, the E02 had the 256MB RAM. I may have been wrong in calling it Pro.

Well yes and no. It has a faster processor, wireless and hdmi, but it doesn't have sata, 4 usb ports, gigabit ethernet, power supply, etc.

I have a ug802 btw.

Also with POGO we can access over the internet..can we do the same with Rikomagic

These are two completely different things. The mk802/mk808 are clients whereas the pogoplug would be a server. They do work great together though. The android pogoplug app + mxplayer work much better than Netflix on android (and about the same as a rokubox in my experience).

If your pogoplus device is included in the pogoplug's cloud space your internet speed must be high enough to make it useful. I have verizon 15/5M plan but downloading the stuff from the pogoplus device via internet is super slow. The device is still in my closet. That means it is useless. Instead of using pogoplug you can set up a FTP server.
