Doens't do anyting for me.

ManoaHI, Amazon

  • Summary: Can't really see the point for this. At the time, I would have preferred a larger capacity, but still, I think more memory cards are a better option. I get the iPad point, but 16 GB is much too small. For use with a computer, it is not worth it. USB thumb drives are better for their portability, camera extra drives are better for cameras.

limited storage, heats up fast and no ability to copy from ipad to hard drive

ganesh, Amazon

  • Summary: didn't read the description completely before i bought this, i assumed a two way file transfer with this, being a hard drive, but it doesn't allow you to copy contents from your iOS device to the hard drive, it's one way only. Heats up pretty fast. returned it.

Not worth the money

  • Summary: When I bought this item I got it with the intention to free up space on my iPad. In short it has not lived up to my expectations. It wouldn't sync up right have the time and when it would you couldn't download to it. It's a complete waste of money as far as I'm concerned.

mine failed after few months.

Jungsuk Cho, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: I used pretty good in couple months. I was trying to update firmware in pc/mac. both failed on me. and now it didn't stream mp3, mp4, avi for other device. *YOU MUST KNOW* when you use this device over wifi. you can not use internet. your iphone/ipad/android will lose their internet connectivity. means your device never tell you that you have new mail or tweet. If you have mobile hotspot with you, you can connect this device to your hotspot and your all device.

Disappointing and under-engineered

Douglas Colligan, Amazon
11 September 2012
  • Summary: I'm on my second Wi-Drive. The first one crashed/froze after I went to Kingston's website to update the software on it. Emails with a very polite, very co-operative tech person at Kingston did not help, so I returned for a replacement. That worked fine until - don't ask me why - I decided to update the software on the replacement. Yup. Crash. I sort of got it going again and managed to use it to transfer files to my iPad so I am keeping it. But it is of limited value.

Not that easy to use

  • Summary: This was hard to set up. I gave it a low rating. Good concept, but may need some revamping to make it easier for customers.

Great Idea, poor execution, wait for the next Gen.

Steve T, Amazon
11 July 2012
  • Summary: I love the idea. This little unit will serve info wirelessly on its own wireless network and will also bridge to another wireless network. (In theory) I have not had the ability to test it as the unit failed 30 seconds after I attempted to configure it. I am not kidding. 30 seconds after trying to configure it, the links on the "CD" image that the unit utilizes to configure are corrupted.

kingston wifi drive

Mr. Denis J. Burns "D J Burns", Amazon
5 March 2012
  • Summary: drive works fine but Amazon in their infinite wisdom prevent Kindle fire users in the uk from accessing the Android Market. The drive does not come with the software installed..therefore I cannot use it in the way I wish on my Kindle fire...why sell it if you can't supply the software?????
