Summary: I moved everything from my Ipod, Ipad and personnal laptop items to this. I formatted everything to .mp4 using FreeMaker and now I can access the Patriot using any device I want from any room and stream from it, to my laptop to my projector. Rockin!
Summary: This is so useful and i use it with my iphone 4s. Haven't tried it with my routed nookColor but that is next. I have my entire movie collection on it and still have lots of space left to use for docs or music or photos. Plan on using it fir my next trip!
Summary: I really want to like this product, but it just isn't working. My devices (iPhone 4s and Nexus7) connect just fine, then navigate to folders. All content is .mp4. Movies/shows begin to stream, then after a short while, the white activity light goes out. Like it goes to/sleep and the devices then say cannot play file. You have to power it down and back up again. I will attempt to contact patriot memory.
Summary: The drive works well with my Nexus 7 and ES Explorer. I kept it plugged in so I can't comment on the battery life. The software cold use further revisions and is clunky, but is sufficient. The hang up for me was after adding files to the drive via USB I would unplug it and the wifi would instantly turn on. I would then connect to it and couldn't see my drive. After trial and error I found that I needed to power cycle the unit after adding files before connecting to it.
Summary: I have only been using this for about a week but it has done everything it says it does. I downloaded and updated the firmware on the unit right away as others recommended and tested it out. My tablet had no problem connecting and accessing content with the App. My laptop "saw" it as well, it just doesn't always come up in the list of network drives, but it is easy enough to access it in finder.
Summary: The device is extremely easy to set up and certainly warrants the great reviews posted. I was listening to my music library from my Android phone, and Kindle Fire HD in no time. I had some trouble getting the internet pass through working, and came across a very pleasant surprise - it is penguin powered! This truly made my day! This made solving the internet pass-through problem a breeze (turns out I had to enable DHCP on my main internet router).
Summary: So the first 9 people who reviewed this item were all given free samples of this drive for them to give an "unbiased" review. I, however, had to buy mine, so maybe people will view my review differently. I am not a tech geek per-say, but I am savvy enough to set up most of my electronics like my TiVO and external drives and things like that. I have an ipad 4 with 64 gig of memory, but I find that you can never have enough memory.
