Summary: I've only had the drive for a couple of weeks so I can't speak for its longevity but I am completely happy with it.
Pros: I get a steady rate of 35 KBp/s when transferring large files. Only uses one USB port. Small size is convenient.
Cons: Their software, which you have to download from their website after jumping through some hoops, didn't increase my transfer speeds at all. Tried the drive on another pc lacking their software and got the same results, speed-wise.
Summary: The functionality of the device is good. However, the battery life is about half of that advertised while streaming videos. Also, the device must be powered off in order to charge- it will not charge while connect to your PC and loading files.
Summary: What a great way to connect all your devices and extend the life of those older devices with limited storage. Throw movies on here and install a free player like vidon and an old low memory iPad is now useful again! This little unit us powerful and easy to use.
Summary: The USB connection broke after minimal use. They do not warranty this part for repairs. The hard drive inside works fine and is made by Western Digital. The case, otherwise, seemed to work well.
