Summary: OK, I like to take products to the limit and find all they can do. Besides using the unit as it is intended as a wireless storage, it work also as a multimedia router. There's no need to be connected to the Internet to be able to stream hd videos from your computer, phone or any dlna device. Install a dnla server or app on your computer or phone and stream music, movies, and photos to your tv or sony smp200 media player or to your computer with xbmc!!
Summary: Bought a 16gb iPad and one I loaded some of my videos to show clients I realized I should have bought one with more storage capacity. When I saw this item I bought it right away and glad I did. What a great product.
Summary: As I travel I enjoy watching movies to help pass the time. Since I did not purchase the 64GB iPad I have found a way to extend my storage space. The Kingston Wi-Drive provides 16GB at a reasonable price. As I traveled on the Amtrak train I was easily able to connect my iPad to the Kingston Wi-Drive and watch my movies. There was never any lag while watching the movies, it was as if they were really on the iPad.
Summary: So I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents as there seems to be some debate over this issue. As stated elsewhere as long as you turn on the device and let the blue wifi lights come on PRIOR to plugging it in to the USB charger it will transmit while charging. Just got back from a family vacation and being able to make additional movies available to the iPad was really nice. No glitches or stuttering on playback. Seems like an excellent product!

Summary: I just got my 16GB WI Drive. Within in 20 minutes of having a charged battery I loaded two folders each with about 130 videos and 7 GB(golf instruction videos.) You can do this in Windows Explorer by just dragging the folders you want. A tiny blinking light indicates the transfer is in progress. For me, one folder is for Kindle Fire (MP4) and one is for Iphone/Ipad. You change the wifi setting on your phone/tablet to to receive the Wi Drive.
Summary: I've had this drive for over a month now and decided it was worth writing a review. The first one I received was unfortunately defective...however, this turned in to an opportunity for Kingston to show just how amazing their customer service is. They made short work of the turnaround and the replacement works perfectly. In fact, it works even better than I imagined. The range is absolutely incredible.
Summary: I have a 32Gig version and a 16Gig version. Both work great. I have not had the issues others have had. I found the set up to be easy with no issues. The internet passthrough works, although, I rarely use it. Movies for the grandkids and for long flights work great. Ok so the rest of the reviews talk about the device, I'm going to let you in on a couple of things I've found out that will make this device even better.
Summary: I purchased the Wi Drive from when I travel to provide me with additional storage to both my Galaxy Tablet and Kindle Fire. My wife and share these devices, so having some extra storage for videos or photos was important. Before I get to the actual reeview, let me say I wish I had purchased the 64GB unit. I purchased the 16GB one. The unit is easy to tranfer videos and pictures was very easy.
Love this little device! Works for iPhones and iPads.

Summary: I paid $49.99 for this little device because it is actually cheaper to buy this than to buy an extra 16GB for the iPad. This device is so simple to use. Just: 1. Copy the songs or photos to it. 2. Charge it up. 3. Download the Wi-Drive App for your iPhone or iPad. 4. Turn on the device. 5. Turn on the wireless in you iPhone or iPad. 6. Once connected, launch the Wi-Drive App. 7. Select to play songs or just browse for photos. 8. Green indicator- has plenty of power.
