I got my 32GB Kingston Wi-Drive (and app) to use with my Google Nexus 7 (since that particular tablet lacked a suitable SD Card slot). When I received it, it had a little juice in the battery, so I tried connecting my tablet to the peripheral. When the thing wouldn't connect, I went back to the instructions and found I needed to enable it in wi-fi. That's not so much a drawback as it is an annoyance...it meant I had to disconnect from my home wi-fi in order to use the device. I connected it, and immediately set up a WPA-PSK password for it, because I don't want my files or devices to be compromised by some hacker. It seemed to work okay, so I disconnected, and put it on the charger so I could really give it a full test.
It works great. I can transfer files effortlessly from as close as right next to the tablet, to distances of across the room or across the house with very good reliability. Not too shabby.
It charges up quite fast, so you're not waiting for the device to reach full charge.
Now, The Bad:
It heats up quite fast, whether it's being charged or used. For any length of time over 30 minutes, the case gets VERY hot. I've burned my fingers more than once because of this.
The Wi-Drive app tends to crash when the Wi-Drive is being used as a wi-fi bridge to access the internet. I've alerted Kingston about this, but I have yet to hear from them on whether they've corrected this problem.
In conclusion...if it didn't heat up so fast, or if the app was far more stable, I could give this a full five stars. Perhaps Kingston could/should add a small heat sink to the problem area, which I assume is over the battery or wi-fi radio. They've definitely got to work on that app...I've downloaded it from both Amazon and the Google Play store, and both copies crash whenever I try to use the drive as a wi-fi bridge. Until these two problems are corrected, and simply because Kingston is such a well-respected name in the computer industry, I have to give this device four stars.
- Only 64GB (now there's a 128GB model) but that pales in comparison to the seagate wireless+
- Network passthrough (so that you can connect to the wi-drive and have it connect to your network so that you can keep an internet connetion) only works if the SSID is not hidden. Now I know that this is not real security but it should work no matter what
- The iOS app is a piece of garbage. It often can't even find the wi-drive. Using a browser is much more reliable - just point it to 192.168.200.254. Unfortunately the browser version is not always optimized for a small screen like an iPhone but the setting page is fine
- Like many devices it can be slow after making config changes and or require a reboot. So patience pays off. If you can't connect to it right away or don't see your files wait a bit
- Battery life is ok. I only get 2-3 hours with constant use
- Although not intuitive you can indeed import photos (although not other file types) from your iOS device albums to either the wi-drive itself or to the apps local storage. Here's how:
1. In the wi-drive app choose the wi-drive or Local (doesn't make a difference since the real selection comes later)
2. Perform a long press by touching the screen until the Actions menu appear
3. Select "Import Photo..."
4. Chose Local or Wi-Drive
5. Navigate to the location you want to use and create a new folder if needed
6. Click "Done"
7. After clicking done a list of iOS albums will appear
8. Don't go rushing to click a photo since that will only import that photo and you'll have to start all over. Instead click "Edit" to import multiple photos at once.
- I get frequent connection drops when not streaming and I have to remind myself to make sure I'm connected to the wi-drive's network
But it does do what Kingston says it does and I can't fault it for that. I got mine on sale for 50% and for that price I can't complain too much. It comes with a USB cable and wall wart and I really wish it came with a case as well. I picked up a small Amazon Basics case and it works well. Other nifty little features include the email to mail, copy, delete files on the wi-drive. You can even move files to the 'local' space on the wi-drive iOS Apps local storage.
