Love it

Joseph G., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • Summary: Really don't understand others complaints. Yes it cost more but it has wireless ability, Duh
  • Pros: whenever computer is on it uploads previously un uploaded photos. Camera does bot have to be on. I certainly appreciate not having to plug in a cord. No hassel the pcs are uploaded.
  • Cons: not as fast as a wired connection, but so what without any effort pics are uploaded

WHY THE HELL DO I HAVE TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT WITH THEM?

fan t., Newegg
31 May 2012
  • Summary: Wasted my money.
  • Pros: BAH, the account creation requirement kills any pros
  • Cons: When I first saw this, I thought - cool. The memory card can attach to a local wifi and send it to my computer that is attached locally (or optionally, via "the cloud"). But these people *FORCE* you to _use_ their "the cloud". You *HAVE TO* create a stupid ef-fling account just to activate the co...

Suspect business model

Anonymous, Newegg
10 May 2012
  • Summary: Based on these issues it seems to imply that Eye-Fi has one of those particularly bad business models where they are selling the cards with the intent to monetize you at a later date and there appears to be room in their privacy policy for this sort of thing.
  • Pros: Comes with USB adapter.
  • Cons: Requires an internet connection to their servers to download setup software. Requires an account with their servers even to transfer files locally. Does not allow uploads to the card so it can't be used in a picture frame. Filters and checks data to ensure that only JPEGs are uploaded so they can...

Lost over 200+ Photos

Shawn B., Newegg
24 July 2011
  • Summary: Makes you wonder why camera manufacturers do integrate wifi and Bluetooth out of the factory, everything is going wireless these days. Eyefi is an interesting concept, however, the execution could be a lot better. The price is a bit high for what you get.
  • Pros: *Easy uploading of files *Compatible with almost all SD card cameras *Decent storage space *Easy to configure
  • Cons: *Slow uploads even over wireless N *Iffy reliability *expensive

Better than the camera

Randall C., Newegg
11 December 2010
  • Summary: Makes my wife happy with seems only like pure magic. Buy yourself a wolf shirt with this thing and you'll be immortal.
  • Pros: A little setup, and a lot LESS headache, especially if the girl is pretty continually bummin out on the "where's the cord" blah blah blah.... SOLVED. Then, it gets even better: doing product shots or fussy photography? the images are on your screen, and in photoshop in a snap - absolutely killer....
  • Cons: If your in a rush to pull video off, then maybe use the cord or drop the the card in a reader, seems to be a little faster...especially since the camera shuts off after 5 min. Hardly a flaw though

repeated problems

Christopher E., Newegg
5 December 2010
  • Summary: Both the software and firmware have been updated quite a bit. For someone like me that uses it once per year, I'm left with a broken solution. Seems like the product simply is neither mature nor stable. After last year's charity Christmas party, I had two working cards.
  • Pros: After writing some custom software, it allowed me to replace polaroid camera with a digital solution and still get instant results
  • Cons: First card didn't work (it had been returned and wasn't unregistered). Second card worked when it was purchased, but neither will work one year later. No customer support on weekends

disappointment

Russell J., Newegg
25 August 2010
  • Summary: I have the previous generation but even on todays eyefi forums there are posts about completely losing images in addition to the same problems I continously had regarding simply connecting to wifi.
  • Pros: it can act as storage, barely
  • Cons: - expensive - service charge for hotspots - software extremely unreliable - no way to manually initiate image transfer - wifi configuration works about 1% of the time - overall totally unreliable

Not compatible with satellite ISP

Carl V., Newegg
26 May 2010
  • Summary: Why would you need to 'get connected to Eye-fi server' when working locally? I understand you need an internet connexion to upload to your preferred social media website, but why would you need an internet connection to simply upload your JPGs to your local computer?
  • Pros: Product promises a lot. I was promptly offered an RMA + prepaid shipping label (!) when I reported it was not working. Great customer service from NewEgg!
  • Cons: Will not work with satellite ISP. When I tested my first card, it didn't connect to Eye-fi server. Eye-fi support failed to identify the problem so it was returned - easily - to Newegg. Second card arrived and same negative results, but this time, Eye-fi tech support confirmed that most satellite...

Great Product

Anonymous, Newegg
12 April 2010
  • Summary: Got this for my wifes camera so I would no longer be bugged to transfer data each time she wanted to upload to picasa. Now whenever she takes the picture or video it moves the data directly to the preferred share that she knows how to easily get to.
  • Pros: Easy setup, quick transfers, and innovative product. 802.11 N network support
  • Cons: Support for windows home server is lacking.

produit de qualité médiocre

geo75 "sylvain84", Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: Il faudra passé un temps fou pour configurer ce produit. Rien est intuitif. Je l'ai acheté avec le Doxie Go et j'ai fini par garder la solution sans cette carte qui est surtout un gadget. Comme demandé par le vendeur, je détail un peu plus.
