Customer Reviews

Great device, very easy to use.
Kerrie Graham
All other videos work with other iPad movie apps (I have AVPlayerHD) but you cannot tell MediaShair to use this app so they fail.
Ian Davies
I have a 5 port USB power supply in my car so it will be plugged in constantly.

What a great little multi-purpose widget.

It's a wireless access point for Wi-Fi devices with no ethernet port (my phones, Macbook Pro)
It's a Wi-Fi repeater, creating its own little subnet of devices, and sharing a wireless connection to the outside world.
It's a portable power supply/phone charger
It's an SD card reader, USB stick reader, or USB disk interface for my android phone, or any other computer attached by wireless or wired connection.
Heck, it's even a USB-SD converter.
It's a NAS device: I can mount its two disks (SD card and USB device) from any computer on my wired or wireless network.
It's fast: as a Wi-Fi access point it easily keeps up with my 25 Mbps cable internet service, and can transfer files from the SD card at > 5 MB/s.
Yeah, it's a media server too.

Can't park your "personal files" SD card in your work laptop because it sticks out? (I'm talking to you Apple!) Just park it in this device - it appears as just another disk on your Mac, plus your phone can see it at the same time.

Want to read a Mac-formatted USB disk on your PC? Just plug it in.

Don't want to mess with registering a half-dozen devices with every new Wi-Fi location? Just let them talk through this, and just change this one's Wi-Fi. All your devices remain in a "home" network, and can talk to each other and to its common disks.

Want to bring along a disk full of files/movies/songs to share or present at a party or meeting? Just bring it and turn it on.

Stuff to be aware of:
- It's got hours of battery life, but I leave it plugged into a USB supply while at my desk.

Pro:
* Small, Solid box. That has so much potential.
* It takes many file formats: HFS, NTFS, FAT32, exFAT
* Can be use as access point through wired connection

Cons:
* (FIXED)And this is a big one for me. Even though it will be able to save large video file (>4GB) through exFAT or NTFS, but its SAMBA service can not recognize the large file. It will report the wrong file size and can not play the large video files!! The native IOS apps can see the large file correctly but it is useless because it does not play MKV on iOS. I tried using Windows to play video files through its SAMBA service, and it does NOT work either. I am sure this is something IOGEAR will be able fixed if they are dedicated to this product.Please fix it.
* Performance is not optimal for network access
USB Reader performance ~20MB/s
SAMBA wired performance ~5MB/s
SAMBA wireless performance ~2MB/s

EDIT: They finally come up with the fixed firmware 2.000.012 and it has fixed file size issue over SAMBA. I have updated reviews to 4 stars!

This device is extremely versatile and easy to set up, and features like samba support and the ability to read the most-used file systems on portable drives, the ability to act as a wireless access point for a wired connection, and a 12-volt/5-volt (@1 amp) car adapter make it a cinch for taking it on-the-go.

Things it does:

-Allows you to take a variety of movies, music, and documents on the go, allowing access by a large number of devices (android and iOS devices, laptops, etc.) via wireless. Your capacity is only limited by the size SD card or portable USB storage you hook up to it.
-Allows you to serve up a wireless access to a wired connection (like, say, the one in your hotel room) that all your wireless devices can use.
-Suvives on battery for hours while serving up wireless access to files, your LAN and the internet (via wireless bridge...it obviously doesn't feature mobile broadband built-in).
-Works in conjunction with IOGEAR's free mediashair app to allow playback of music and video files on your android/iOS portable devices.
-Serves up samba file shares for your truly network-enabled devices. On a rooted android device, provided the right samba support app, this can mean browsing and playback via the device's native apps instead of IOGEAR's mediashair app.

What it doesn't do well:
-It doesn't transcode, so if your device doesn't natively support playback of a given file type (.mkv on iOS devices, for example), you'll want to transcode your files to a compatible format.
-It suffers the same bitrate limitations as other wireless solutions, so playback of large video files can be problematic. You won't be streaming any 25-gig bluray rips, at least not without dropouts, pauses, and other performance issues. Although it supports larger file sizes, staying under the 4.5 gig mark for movies is advisable. This is acceptable, imho, for most portable playback devices, given a decent compression scheme is used.

I take a lot of pictures and even more large sized videos so buying more SD Cards is not an option. I can do almost everything from my iPhone or iPad except backing up my SD Cards to SSD/HDD and for that alone had to carry my laptop as dedicated photo bank solutions were flawed and expensive. Keep in mind speed is a real concern. I need to backup 64G easily possibly even more a day and even on my Mac to backup 64G it would require an hour to do so.
With the emergence of this device type I saw a chance to finally ditch the laptop (especially since carry-on restrictions are getting crazy , common 5kg limit???) I read up on the Ravpower Filehub, the Kingston MLW221 Mobilelite they came close and helped me realize what I was needed even more.
Ravpower FIlehub has great reviews but I was concerned about the 3MB/s SD Card read speed. This would mean 64G will need 6hrs to backup!! Some have mentioned not being able to read of exFAT formatted SD Cards which is a must for me
Kingston Mobilelite is not much smaller but battery is. The limit of 3 simultaneous users (vs 5 for Ravpower and 7 for IOGear) would tip me off to a lowend chipset possibly giving me even worse read/write performance but before I even got to that determination I found a reviewer loosing his content and it dropped out of this race immediately

In comes the IOGear Mediashair.
