Who Won Our Seagate Wireless Plus Drive Competition?

Who Won Our Seagate Wireless Plus Drive Competition?

Thanks to everyone who entered our competition to win an awesome Seagate Wireless Plus Drive — there were lots of interesting suggestions for the ideal movie to stream from this versatile device. After careful consideration, these are our five winners.

Tazza latched onto the wireless connection:

Free Willy has the scene where the whale jumps over the sea gate, and I’m pretty sure that scene was filmed without wires.

MC Razza also incorporated the product name, but in a more detailed way:

In alphabetical order:

S. – Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
E. – E.T.
A. – Aliens
G. – Groundhog Day
A. – Austin Powers
T. – Trainspotting
E. – Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

notsellinghats identified a key performance benefit of the drive:

I love that the Seagate Wireless Plus drive can stream different HiDef films to different devices AT THE SAME TIME!!! This means that I can watch The Fast and the Furious while my wife watches Sex and the City 2!

Philbo was just seeking to save some sanity:

Peppa Pig Seasons 1 – 8 because it’s the only thing that will keep my daughter occupied long enough for me to do anything!

Finally, Steven made a neat gag:

The Ten Commandments. Because I could stream to a tablet a movie about a bloke who crosses a stream to get a tablet.

Thanks again to everyone who entered — keep an eye out for more competitions in the future. And special thanks to Seagate for the prizes!


      • Hey tazza, have you received your seagate wireless plus drive yet? I’m still waiting for mine. 🙁

        • Nope, but I also won a dlink router from Gizmodo (I know, right!) and it took a little while to arrive. I’m pretty sure Allure just forward details to seagate and they send the device, so it’s not really up to them how long it takes.

          • Okay, cool. I’m glad it’s not just me! lol

            I was worried because I received an email from Angus last Wednesday and one from Danny last Friday informing me of the win and asking for my deets. I asked for a confirmation that they received my email but received no reply.

            I asked because in the past I had a bad experience after winning an item from a popular tech website (not Allure Media) who didn’t send my item despite me sending them my deets and trying to contact them via email, phone and even fax. They claimed they didn’t receive anything from me and gave it to someone else because apparently I didn’t contact them to claim it.

            And what? You won that dlink router too? Unfair! :p

          • @mc_razza @tazza
            I haven’t received anything yet either – thought I might have has to follow up – but you’ve put my mind at ease – thanks – I’ll just wait patiently 🙂

          • @notsellinghats @tazza
            Have you guys experienced any issues with your Seagate Wireless Plus drives? Mine has comprehensively sh*t itself today. My computers do not recognise that the SWP is connected to it via USB, WiFi isn’t working despite showing a blue light, I can’t power it off or reset the device, and I can’t connect to it.
