Sandisk put a lot of thought into designing this product, and it shows. It's a USB flash drive (with removable storage) that doubles as a wireless network drive compatible with Android and iOS devices.

Using it with a computer is easy, just plug it in like any other flash drive. Phones and tablets access the device via WiFi and a special app that helps facilitate the file transfers. The speed is adequate for streaming HD movies to multiple users simultaneously. The onboard battery is rated for about 4 hours of usage but I do suggest using a USB power adapter for longer durations. Wireless mode is disabled when it's plugged into a computer.

Sandisk smartly provides an option to connect the device directly to an existing WiFi network in addition to having the device offer its own WiFi connection. A number of 'preferred' networks can be set up so the flash drive connects to those configured networks automatically whenever an access point is within range. Both direct and networked connections are available simultaneously.

The flash drive can also play protected iTunes files provided the iPhone or iPad is already authenticated with the iTunes account that originally purchased the content. The files will play through Safari but otherwise are completely functional. I do not own an Android device so I was unable to test whether or not Google Play content works in a similar fashion.

The only thing lacking is a bookmarking feature for video playback. Streaming video has to be played through the Sandisk app and it will not remember where a video left off if the app is shutdown mid-stream. It would be nice for it to remember where to start from when it's re-loaded.

But overall the Sandisk Connect offers a great solution for inexpensively storing a large amount of media. It's perfect for families with long road trips and want to ensure their kids are well entertained for the ride.

I've tried to come up with a way to take movies in the van for road trips for the longest time. 1) Built in DVD players = high maintenance and 4 out of 6 kids not liking what is playing. 2) bought some iPads and kindle fires. Don't want to pay through the nose for extra storage so they can only hold a few movies. Eventually the kids are all fighting for the one iPad that has the one high demand movie. So I tried to just put a router with a hard drive in there and never got it to work.

Finally, I happen upon this while looking at sandisk SD cards. I think....too good to be true. A mini router that can stream 5 movies at the same time and hold 64gb of data? Plus 64Gb more expansion? No way. I dove in to try.

Bottom line? Loaded up all 64GB with movies and put in another 64GB SD that it recognized no issue. Loaded the sandisk app on all the iPads, iPhones, and kindle fires. Jumped in the van and turned it on. Not one peep from 5/6 kids for the whole trip. (The 6th is only 1 though). Works like a charm. Period. Love it.

Battery lasts a long time too...5-6hrs maybe? I had it on for 3+ with 45% remaining. If needed, you can just plug it in though with microusb to car power.

Glossary for this review:

Media Drive = this product

Flash Drive = Sandisk's other wireless flash storage option

You're probably wondering how this product compares to Sandisk's SanDisk Connect 32GB Wireless Flash Drive (SDWS2-032G-E57). To my surprise there is a distinct difference between these two products and the Flash Drive slightly edges out this one.

The reason is that the Media Drive app lacks the ability to copy many types of files from the iPad/iPhone/Android device to the Media Drive. For example, if I receive a PDF via email in the iOS mail application, I can toss that PDF to the Flash Drive's app and then copy it over to the device. The Media Drive doesn't recognize the file at all. Additionally, viewing PDF files on the Flash Drive app will have them open up in the app for immediate viewing. The Media Drive downloads the file and then instead prompts to have it open in another application.

I did find that the Media Drive app was much more intuitive for viewing and/or copying photos between devices. I also like how I can take an SD card out of my digital camera, place it in the Media Drive, and immediately stream video files and still photos to my mobile devices. Very slick. Photos also pop up immediately although the Media Drive app lacks the ability to view RAW files shot by my Nikon SLR.

It's currently not possible to copy files from the card to the Media Drive's internal storage, but Sandisk promises that functionality soon. That will be a great way to back up footage on the go.

The bottom line?

I really like the concept of this device, but it's still a bit rough in execution. It does work fine for its basic use: load it up with media files from your PC (via USB) then stick it in your pocket and you can stream to multiple devices. No cables needed.

Unfortunately, beyond that it gets frustrating. For example, transferring files in the other direction, from your device to the flash drive is nigh unpossible. As others have noted, there's no option to open files in other apps. Photos and videos always go to the Camera Roll (if it works) and you can't choose a normal file folder. File management is nonexistent.

Wifi is confusing. You can turn on internet access through a local network, but there's just too much complication of how that works, how you access it, when it's password protected, etc. If you're not a technical person, this will be very difficult. There are other weird things like you have to turn on wifi before you plug it in to charge.

I think the hardware is solid. The software is the problem. Of course, it's buggy and locks up occasionally. But the biggest problem is that it just isn't well designed. It's confusing and arcane. You know there's a usability problem when they include four videos on how to use it.

I would recommend this product for a technical person who can live with its limitations (or wait for improvements). There are plenty of other wifi media storage/streaming drives. What sets this apart is it's small size and lack of cables. Just don't expect too much. Plug it into a USB port on your PC, copy some files over, then drop it in your pocket to stream. But it's not a full-featured media management solution.

UPDATE: I'm giving this another star because it turns out you can use larger (i.e. 64 GB) micro SDXC cards. The XC cards are sold formatted as ExFAT but the wireless flash drive wants plain old FAT. So, if you just reformat the card as FAT32 they'll work fine.
