It works, very annoyed about having to use an account on their stupid service

Summary: As a memory card it works nicely. It also connects nicely to wifi, and doesn't cause unreasonable load on my camera's battery. But it's absolutely absurd that we should have to use their ridiculous service to transfer the files. At the very least, give up your iron grip by making that portion optional. There's no technical reason whatsoever to make your eye-fi service mandatory.
Summary: It's a miracle fitting WiFi technology into such a small package that also is a memory card - but set-up is awkward and limiting. It needs to be re-configured (by plugging it into a computer) for each new Wi-Fi network, so it seems like it would be difficult to use while travelling.
Summary: UPDATE AFTER 3 MONTHS OF USE. Despite what I said below, I decided to purchase a second one. I don't regret it but ... I've learned a few things along the way which I wanted to share. 1) It depends on the camera! In my Fuji X20, which is a late-model camera, my experience is 100%. Based on that alone, I would give it 5 stars.
Summary: The concept is really good. Unfortunely the transfer doesn't work all the time. Some times you need to play with the software to re-establish the connection between the camera and the client (computer, android device où iOS device). The iOS app will crash from time to time. Overall, it's a great product but needs some fixing to make it better.
Summary: Wireless transfer works well, as advertised, but is far too slow for me. I normally shoot 70-80 or more large high resolution jpgs at at a time, 3-5 MB and up, and each one can take as much as 20-30 seconds to transfer: far too long and far too much battery drain. Since my Nikon D5100 can disable its Wi-Fi, I use it as a regular card and transfer conventionally via USB or directly from the card using a slot/reader. On the positive side, it works.
Earlier versions have performed better, sad face 8-(

Summary: When my wife and I attended MacWorld 2008 in San Francisco, the product we were the most excited about was the Eye-Fi cards. We imagined how it could improve the experience of our family members when it came to downloading photos. We purchased 4, and smuggled them back to Canada, and gifted them to various family members. These worked pretty well, but were limited to downloads within networks you added on your computer.
Summary: Ich habe zwei 4GB-Eye-Fi-Karten im Einsatz. Das Produkt kann, was es verspricht: Bilder über WLAN auf PC, Tablet oder WLAN-Handy übertragen. Das ist praktisch, um sich das Kopieren zu sparen, Fotos direkt großformatig anzuschauen oder auf Facebook & Co. hochzuladen. Probleme gibt's allerdings beim herkömmlichen Zugriff auf die Karte via SD-Slot. Jedes mal nervt eine Meldung "Möchten Sie Eye-Fi (D:) reparieren?".
Gute Idee - Einzig der Vollbild Modus und eine ordentliche Anleitung fehlt

Summary: Ich habe mir die 4GB Karte geholt und bin ganz angetan von dem Produkt. Zuerst mal das positive, die Installation ging problemlos vonstatten. Die Reichweite ist bei meiner Kamera, da ich nicht über einen Router arbeite, absolut ausreichend. Achtung, wenn man seinen Router angegeben hat, sucht die Karte diesen immer als erstes. Wenn man wie ich direkt mit dem Laptop oder Handy koppeln will muss den router ausschalten oder aus der Konfiguration löschen.
