Conclusion: The Kingston Wi-Drive is a handy companion to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that adds storage and streams content to multiple devices, but its specs don't quite match its high price tag.
Pros: Compact, light build. Can stream content to three devices simultaneously. Simple to add content. Companion iOS app makes connecting easy.
Cons: Expensive for the amount of storage you get. Short battery life. Only works with iOS devices. Limited to iOS-native file formats.
Excerpt: There are some smartphone accessories that make you go “huh? Who would buy this?” And then sometimes there are ideas so smart you think, “Wow! Why didn’t anyone do this sooner?” Finally, there’s the “GREAT idea, poor execution” accessory.
Pros: Acts as an external hard drive for an Android or iOS device; Also doubles as a hard drive for a Mac or PC; Sync is extremely fast; App connects quickly and smoothly; Saves space on your device

Excerpt: 1 Flares 1 Flares × Today we are looking at the Kingston Wi-Drive. This portable device can be used to wirelessly transmit and share content with up to three tablets or smartphones simultaneously. Photos, videos and music can be shared with iOS and Android devices.

Pros: Ingenious and compact wireless storage device
Cons: Expensive; connecting to an existing Wi-Fi network can be tricky
Conclusion: The Kingston Wi-Drive works, as it should. We have some minor worries about the operating temperature and the battery life. We aren't thrilled that you can't have it plugged in to a PC or other power source and still use it on Wi-Fi either.
Pros: Wireless, small, reasonably priced, Android and iOS support
Cons: App is basic, gets very hot, bigger than most wired storage
