Size Name: 1 TB
This is my second wireless hard drive. For 1 terabyte, I can put a lot of movies, my entire music collection, documents and photos. It is a lot easier to setup, I guess the app is a lot more polished compared to when wireless hard drives are relatively new.

It was packaged nicely in a beautiful sturdy box with the drive well protected by a dense foam. It came with a USB 3.0 cable and power adapter for charging the internal lithium-ion battery. Also some extra adapters for non-US users. Make sure to charge it fully the first time you take it out of the box. The AC wall adapter is rated 100-240V so even if you travel to Asia or other countries you can still plug it on the wall without the need of a transformer. It has a folding prong and has an output of 5V at 2Amps. A full charge can last up to 6 hours.

Using the USB 3.0 cable, I transferred whole movies, pictures and documents in lightning speed. I have a couple of WD Passport drives for 2 TB, compared to them the Aero is a tad bigger in heft, but you have to remember that the Aero houses its own battery. I pressed the button on the side and confirmed I have 4 white LEDs for a fully charged battery. The first thing you need to do is download the free app - available from the Appstore (for IOS) and Google and Amazon for Androids. The app is very light, it took only a few seconds to download it to my iphone, iPad and Mini. Upon firing up the app, I was able to connect to the drive's content by switching to its own Wifi; initial SSID is Patriot; you can rename it later. I played one of my high def home travel movies, it buffered for a few seconds and then start playing. Playing a DVD quality movie streams instantly, even scrubbing it in the middle, it continued to play almost in an instant.

Size Name: 1 TB
Other reviewers have already talked about the many great features of this excellent AERO PATRIOT WIRELESS MOBILE DRIVE, which gives you a full terabyte of additional file storage space for your Android or iOS mobile devices (e.g., smartphone, iPad, Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HD), or even your PC. It's a portable mini-hotspot, and a server/router that communicates wirelessly with your devices, so you can stream your home videos and movies, watch slideshows, play music, and view data files.

But like other similar products, the AERO has a couple of drawbacks:

*** First, it will NOT be able to play or display all of your movies, digital DVDs, documents, photos, etc., unless the device you're using has "native players" that support the particular file formats (e.g., .wmv, .m4v, .pdf, .jpg, .doc, etc.). Also, it will NOT allow you to play files with DRM (digital rights management) protection, unless you use third-party file conversion software first.

*** Second, it's a bit tricky to set up (though I think it's well worth the trouble). Unless you're fairly knowledgeable about how wireless streaming works--which I am not--you'll probably have to spend some time getting your AERO set up properly with an "Internet pass through" connection. However, the AERO is extremely easy to set up if you only want a wireless storage device. (Setup is discussed in more detail later.)

I tested the AERO drive with a Nexus 7 tablet, an iPad2, a Kindle Fire 8.9" tablet, and a PC running Windows 7. It worked flawlessly with all of them. I was delighted that once I got the AERO's password-protected "Patriot" network connection set up, all of my mobile devices with the "Patriot Connect" app installed could connect to the drive.

Size Name: 1 TB
Length: 9:40 Mins
This is nicely designed portable WIFI disk drive with a capacity of 1 TB. It features a rechargeable lithium ion battery that will power the device for up to 6 hours. The WIFI acts as a cloud and allows up to 8 devices to connect to the device but only 5 can stream data simultaneously. You can upload and download music, photos, videos and documents quickly and easily. You can connect a smart phone, tablets and computers quickly and easily.

Apps are available for the Apple IOS systems, Android and Kindle to allow you to connect a lot of different devices and operating systems. I used the USB 3.0 cable and installed videos, songs, photos and files onto the drive and I was able to open them up on the Apple iPad wirelessly. Using the USB 3.0 cable connected to a USB 3.0 port on a computer allowed the files to transfer to the drive at 100 MB/s which is fast. Just remember that you have to connect the USB 3.0 cable and press the drive's on button before the drive will be recognized by the computer. Using the USB cable will also charge the drive's internal battery but at a slower rate than when you use the AC wall adapter that came with the drive. Here is a link to the Patriot Connect App for Kindle.

Patriot Connect

The WIFI system not only connects to your device but you can set it up as a pass through and it acts as an access point to your internet connection. That way you can log onto the drive and still get to the internet if you want.

On the top of the drive is a set of lights that indicate what processes are going on.
