Today we are taking a look at Seagate Central. Seagate Central is Seagate’s entry into the affordable consumer-grade home NAS market. It comes in three configurations: 2 TB at $169.99 (model STCG2000100), 3 TB at $189.99 (model STCG3000100), and 4 TB at $229.99 (model STCG4000100) (prices are as offered on Seagate.com).
The Seagate Central device has quite a nice look to it. The front is a good looking carbon color, and the rest of the device is covered in a black plastic mesh which helps keep it cool. It has a blue status light on the top, but due to the mesh grille, it is difficult to see unless looking straight down at Central, so it won’t bother users in the dark.
