Sandisk Connect Wireless Media Drive

 

A few weeks ago, I received the SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive to review. Thanks to the awesome folks at SanDisk that made this possible! We are in a cloud connected world these days, but what happens when you lose your Internet connection, like when you’re on a flight that has no internet connection, or you just don’t want to pay for inferior in-flight internet access at dial up speeds. Well, before you were out of luck. Not anymore.

With the SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive, you get access to your movies, photos and music and other media even when there is no Internet connection. It creates its own WiFi network that up to eight people can connect to. This is an amazing product for any road trip, for example.

Simplicity wise, it can’t get any easier. It fits in your pocket, and looks very durable. On the back there is a microUSB port and on the side is an SDHC/SDXC card slot. The front has LED’s for battery, wifi and internet along with the power button. Charging time only takes a few hours and gives about 8 hours of battery life, depending on how many users are connected and what you are streaming.

Setting up the device can’t get any easier, just connect it to your Mac or PC. The SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive is formatted to ExFAT so it will work on any OS. The drive I got had 64 GB of free storage on it, which honestly is more like 58 GB, but that’s ok too! Unfortunately, the  SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive is USB 2.0 and not USB 3.0, so you are a bit limited on data transfer speeds.

Accessing the  SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive from your iOS or Android device can’t be any easier. Just download the application from the App Store or Google Play, install it and connect the SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive and you’re ready to go. The  SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive creates folders such as music, photos and video for you so hopefully you’ve uploaded your content in the right place. It really can’t get any easier than this! Select the content you want and volla.

The price is very adequate as well! Go check out Amazon right now for the 32 GB model and the 64 GB model. {rating}
