Great deal for what it does!

  • Excerpt: I purchased this just before vacation just so I would be able to put a few pics up online while we were away. I use an iPhone 5 and an iPad mini with this device. I use it to copy pictures off of my D610 onto either device and do some image processing in Lightroom Mobile before posting on Facebook or sending them to friends and family. Everything works as expected almost every time.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Connection Dropped

Works fine if u follow an imp. step!

  • Excerpt: I bought 1, then another, and they BOTH wouldn't stay connected to my Android Note 3 phone. connect/disconnect over & over again. I found a note on the net about turning ON Airplane mode AND Wifi at the same time, and then I was able to maintain the connection. The Nikon software for this devices is VERY basic, but there are better apps out there. Definitely worth $25 to at least play around with!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Good first cut

  • Excerpt: Not perfect by any means, but useful for WiFi-based control of camera out in the wild with no other WiFi competing. I wonder whether a bluetooth link would be better since that could be "multi-homed", i.e., could serve the connection to the camera AND another device at the same time.Works at advertised, with few flaws: 1. WPA-2 encryption does NOT accept blanks in passphrase, and 2.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Durable

Worst Product - Save your money

  • Excerpt: It was a pain to even get the first photo to transfer. I've read reviews about interference from other devices or networks.... My family and I went to the mountains for a camping trip, no cell service and no other sort of "interference". It was unable to download 8 pictures, I got 2 but then it kept crashing. I tried with small images, large images and everything in-between. NOTHING worked.... This little device is JUNK.
  • Cons: Plastic, Slow

  • Excerpt: Installed easily and works without flaw between my Samsung Android devices and my Nikon1 AW1. A great convenience for a reasonably quick download as well as for remote control of the camera from my cell or tablet. Great buy for the price.

Wireless Fun

  • Excerpt: The device works pretty well, once you can set it up. Getting the correct app takes some time and a high frustration tolerance. The documentation with the product is shakey. I suggest that you go to http: //www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Wireless/WU-1b-Wireless-Mobile-Adapter.html to download the correct app.I would not advise using this product when shooting raw images, they take forever to download.
  • Pros: Evaluate Photos Instantly, Fun Gadget, Lightweight, Use To Control Camera
  • Cons: Somewaht Difficult Setup

Useless

  • Excerpt: This is a useless gadget without support for the most popular operating system in the world. What is Nikon thinking, not creating a Windows app?
