Great drive

Privateer19, B&H Photo
4 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I have used this to transfer and store files from other sources and it works great. Love the fixed cord and the extension as it stays with my home setup. Not a fan of the "included" software all else is great.
  • Pros: Compact, Fast

Project Collaboration for mobile users

Daniel H., Newegg
21 October 2014
  • Summary: This is a great drive for groups that need to collaborate with large files off-site. If needed a user could add wireless data from a phone in the field by following these steps on the computer. You can also do this process via the smartphone app. 1. Power up wireless drive and connect to it. 2. Enable the hotspot/tether mode on a smartphone. 3. Open a web browser and go to the hard drive’s config page by going to 192.168.14.1 4. This will bring you to the settings page.
  • Pros: This is a hard drive solution that is good for those who might collaborate on site or at a field location. It is also applicable for students collaborating in person. By creating its own hotspot, it eliminates the need for a drive to be passed around as everyone can work off of it at once, up to 8 simultaneous wireless connections. This is easy enough as all you have to do is power up the drive and the wireless access point becomes available. The name and password for...
  • Cons: Price. I know that adding things such as a battery and two wireless cards (to allow bridging) will definitely make it cost more than a standard hard drive. If they bump the size to 1.5TB or 2TB it might be a little more tempting. If you want to connect the drive to an existing wireless network so that devices connected the EXISTING network can see it, it doesn’t work. If you want to be able to connect to the drive wirelessly, you must connect directly to the drive’s w...

quick and roomy.

Rowan, Amazon
14 August 2014
  • Summary: I'm a tech dinosaur, I'll get that out there right now. I have another back up memory, but obviously, it's old, this one is faster, smaller and has way more room, and way more expensive. I plugged it in and nothing. For tech dinosaurs like myself, that's disturbing. in the box was instructions how to plug in, I plugged in. Nothing. also in the box was a piece of paper for the vine reviewers with an email address.

Wireless Portability of 1 TB of videos/music/photos

Alan K., Newegg
6 August 2014
  • Summary: The product fills the need for portability of large amounts of stored videos, music and pictures. It's great to take with you when travelling on vacation or for business. I will rate this product as a 4 out of 5 eggs due to the cons I mentioned above.
  • Pros: The Buffalo HDW-PDU3 Wireless Mobile Storage device does as its name implies. I am reviewing the device which has 1.0 TB of storage for videos, music, and pictures, or even data you can access. I have set up this device to wirelessly transmit videos I stored on it through the network to my Smart TV. I also downloaded the Buffalo MiniStation2 App to my Android smartphone for access to the data stored on this device. 1) The device does exactly as it is advertised to do....
  • Cons: 1) Very poor documentation is provided on how to set this device up. It was mostly trial and error on my part. 2) The battery indicator light is either green or red. It would be helpful to know how close you are to being drained by adding bars or some other measure. 3) I could not set this up as a hot spot on our home network, but could only access it through the devices SSID and passphrase. Though it is advertised to be a wireless hotspot. 4) My USB Transfer speeds w...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: This is a good little external storage device with a few perks such as wireless and a phone charger. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is in serious need of better set up directions. When you purchase this, you will have to download an app in order to use it. The process is not very intuitive, but once you get it going, it works great.
