Great for ipadPosted .

Now I have all my media with me without having to lug along a laptop. Great product.I would recommend this to a friend

Device lets two computers see one thumb drive.Posted .
I wanted a PC to wirelessly access a USB drive in another PC. The device does accomplish the goal, but awkwardly. The host computer sees the device just like any thumb drive. The external computer sees it in a browser as a web page which responds very slowly to read/write commands. Furthermore, it took some effort to figure out how to make the system work.I would recommend this to a friend

Sleek designPosted .
I jumped on this wireless flash drive when it was on sale and compounded the deal by applying a promo code I received from Student Deals. Which ever is on a better sale, buy it because here is a little trick to this Wireless Flash Drive. There is a flap on the side that carries the microSD card. That's right. You can swap out the memory cards. I've placed a 64GB and 128GB memory card in it; it has worked for both cards. This is a great piece to have so you can share files or even use it as a microSD card adapter in a pinch. Sure the transfer speed isn't that great but ti be able to expand it and share files makes it a great buy. I sort of wish the USB drive was shorter in length but then how would it sustain its battery life and sturdiness.I would recommend this to a friend

Good solution for iOS device storagePosted .
I purchased this for an overseas trip where I knew I would have limited internet. I wanted to take only an iPhone -- no laptop -- but still take lots of photos and videos that would otherwise quickly use all the storage space on my iPhone. It worked great for this purpose. As soon as I shot a video, I wirelessly transferred it to the flash drive, then deleted it from my phone and was able to shoot several times the amount of video that would otherwise be available to store on my phone. I knock off a star -- perhaps unfairly -- because I was under the impression from the product description that uploading other data from my phone to the flash drive was equally easy. It does not appear to be designed to work like that, however. Documents, for example, can be downloaded from a computer to the flash drive then wirelessly sent to your phone. But the reverse process is not available except for photos and videos. Or if it is, I haven't been able to figure out how to do it yet.I would recommend this to a friend

Sandisk delivers a solid alternative for storage!Posted .
Here's my full review of the Sandisk USB Connect: Since the arrival of the iPad, 3rd party companies have tried to come up with a workable solution for expanding storage. The most successful ones were Drop Box, Box, and other cloud based solutions. They've been joined by Google Drive, Skydrive, and iCloud, with all competing for the future of cloud computing. That's all well in good, until you don't have an internet connection and you're not wanting to use that precious mobile data on a capped plan. Meanwhile, industry bearers like Western Digital and Seagate offered a different approach: turn a personal hard drive into a sort of cloud device by having it broadcast its own wifi signal, independent from an ISP. While this was a great idea, it was based around older, slower tech that any iPad, Nexus, or Kindle Fire's flash based architecture would eat for lunch. Plus, everyone has a heartbreaking tale of dropping a $100+ on an external hard drive, only for it to fail, taking with it all that precious data. To add to that headache even well regarded companies couldn't figure out how to make a solution intuitive enough for the average user. Enter Sandisk Connect! This device essentially provides users the best of cloud speed with the dependability of having the data physically on hand. Perhaps the best thing about the device is it works across platforms (iOS, Android, and Windows). While the purest may hate to admit it, most homes have a combination of devices: a Windows computer for work and an iPad for home, or Galaxy S4 paired with a Macbook Pro. To have a device that gets pictures, movies, documents, and pdfs to all is extremely convenient. To do it with flash architecture and a speedy built in wifi network is even better. To provide all this with a well regarded brand name for $50 to $60 is unbelievable. Sandisk Connect does it reliably and well. Photographers will especially find it convenient as my tests not only showed reliable use with JPEG but RAW as well (Cannon CR2 files to be exact. I expect this to be a case by case deal as my iPad Air natively recognizes the file, but my Nexus 4 does not). The device shines brightest when working with photos, pdfs, and docs...all things that USB 2.0 tech was originally built for. The free app through iOS and Android is a standout and very intuitive for most tech users. Video is where Sandisk Connect shows to be a mixed bag. Streaming a lower res video (540p and lower) is a breeze. Start to stream photos or other videos to another device simultaneously and you'll quickly experience buffering and slow loading. I was able to stream the entire length of The Avengers in SD, but not much else. If you can make that work, then the Sandisk Connect is for you. If you have visions of loading a 64gb card with full length HD movies and streaming them, you'll be disappointed. First loading an HD movie on the thumb drive is painfully slow over USB 2.0. Second, the file size limit for transferring to the device is 3.99 gb or less (more than any full length movie in HD). There may be workarounds to this, but even so you're gonna be out of luck when you hit buffer after buffer during the film. We're probably a generation cycle or two away from seeing the HD video streaming match that of other tasks, just in time for USB 3.0 to be a little cheaper. Sandisk Connect can also hop onto your internet hotspot allowing you to surf the net while loading content from the drive. I took the time to write a thorough review because I do believe this is a great solution for many smartphone and tablet users. I do not know how well this product stands up to wear, tear, and the test of time. But for $50 and the quality Sandisk usually brings, it's worth the gamble.

Handy way to transfer camera photosPosted .
My DSLR camera uses an SD card and will accept up to a 128Gb card. A microSD card adapter makes the micro SD card (included with the SanDisk flash drive) easy to use in my camera. I'm then able to put my latest photos into the SanDisk flash drive, turn on the wifi, and transfer selected photos fro my camera card to my iPhone...then use email or text for sharing the photos when wifi access is not readily available (within carrier data network) ...There is no longer a need to wait until I get back to my desktop or laptop computer card readers. Now there is also no need to carry that heavy laptop on vacation anymore...or wait/rent a hotel lobby machine. I am also able to store and stream my favorite music and videos (which can be easily stored on the SD card) to my phone for those airport delays. A word to the wise, though: The 32Gb flash drive will accept larger SD cards, but they must be reformatted to FAT32 (Directions, downloads, etc are available on the SanDisk website) and only accept file sizes less than 4Gb. After purchasing this 32GB flash drive, I followed it up by purchasing the 64Gb version...which accepts a 128Gb microSD card and will allow file sizes greater than 4Gb. Both drives are handy and work well. A review of your memory card needs and compatibilities would be a good idea before purchase. The flash drive charges easily and quickly and lasts long enough to watch videos and listen to music. It can be recharged using any USB charging device including a spare battery source.I would recommend this to a friend

Awesome IdeaPosted .
I have really enjoyed this item! the ease of use to be able to transfer pictures to the drive wirelessly is an awesome idea. Oh by the way it works great and it is able to be encrypted with security to help prevent from random person accessing it while say at Disney World.

Great way to stream content without internetPosted .
The "cloud" is great for streaming movies and music, until your cable and internet goes out or you have a power failure. Once you load up this flash drive with movies, music, and pictures from your computer, it creates its own WiFi network that you can connect to from your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or Kindle Fire. You can then watch movies on your tablet without needing an internet connection, which is handy when you have bored kids in the car. Just remember that the movies you copy to this drive from your computer must be in a format supported by the device you want to play it on. As an added bonus, you can backup the photos on your phone to this flash drive using the SanDisk app.I would recommend this to a friend

- A:Answer It works wireless with an app that you download to your iPad, but you don't need wifi to use it. It just sends its own wireless signal back and forth to your iPad. So it doesn't physically connect to the iPad. The USB works with a desktop or laptop. You can download a movie from a desktop, then play it wirelessly on your iPad.

Q: QuestionIf you have a 16GB USB can you buy a 32GB or 64GB....I I have a 16GB USB and want to increase the storage can I put a 32GB Micro in and use or can I only use the original size?
Asked by GMANN 1722.
- A:Answer I bought the 32 gig version and swapped out the microSD card for a 64 gig SanDisk microsd I happened to have laying around. Not sure if this device would play well with non SanDisk brand cards (some devices are picky) but you should be able to use any size microsd card and it should work.

Asked by Evansvilleguy.
- A:Answer I have not tried this, but it should work. It is really overkill for a photo frame. Save some money and get a lower cost USB 2.0 drive.

Q: QuestionDoes anyone know When transferring Photos from Device to Device, is the Raw Data preserved & transferred- thanks!Photos have Raw Data attached to their Files, which is important in Reproduction. I just wondered, when transferring that there would be No Loss in THIS DATA.; OR is it Dependent on ANY SOFTWARE in USE; I.e. APPLE IOS ? By the way,.....has anyone had problems with Updates Needed; as it seems that THIS MAY NOT be UPDATED Yet to Apple IOS 9.0? Also, WHICH APP is to be DOWNLOADED for This Product- I see that there May be TWO available....Thank You
Asked by BLnFL.
- A:Answer You should be fine. I am an amateur photographer who shoots in raw and sometimes adds gps info to my pictures. The data is stored in the file so it will travel from usb to hard drive and back to usb without losing any of the "unseen" information.

- A:Answer This item is a home base to connect to it by choosing wifi. You connect your phone to it that way but in no way can it be used to check emails or online. This should be able to be used in your location because it only transfers wirelessly as it acts like s wifi hot spot.
