5.0 out of 5 stars Simple swiss-army knife, March 19, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TonidoPlug 1-Bay Network Attached Storage, Personal Cloud Device - SATA II(2.5') - WiFi N - Gigabit Ethernet - USB 2.0 (Personal Computers)
I didn't have much expectations for the device. I was looking for a device that can convert my USB disk into a NAS device and got this recommended by a co-worker.
I am glad he did. My main requirement was to store all my media files on a NAS and use it from a media PC. It is definitely good doing that and even better it made all those files available outside my home. Now I could access them from office. I am learning more about the device everyday and this is my experience so far, owning it for a week.

Pros:
- able to connect my USB disk and serve my media files.
- I have a LG smart TV. It can pick up media files via DLNA service running inside the plug.
- wired and wireless connection.
- access files from my office.
- Finally the awesome feature that made me give 5* within a week of use ....iPhone App.
Lets me listen to my music collection from anywhere.

Cons:
- Wireless strength.
- Some media files won't play on my smart TV.

Features I didn't care about(others might find useful):
- They have their own app store. There are few apps there already. Torrent seem to be interesting. Haven't got a chance yet.
- Share files with friends and family. Seems to be good feature, but myself is not much of a sharer :-).
- I could add a 2.5inch HDD to plug itself and make it a standalone NAS, but currently I don't have a HDD for that.
- Site says mobile apps available for android, blackberry, windows mobile. I don't have these phones, so not much of use to me.
