Overall I think this is a great device. I much prefer the ability to change out flash media, or spinning platters, as needed to get additional storage. I have the older WiDrive and found it to be a great device, but the main problem I had was deciding which content to take with me. On our next vacation I will be able to load up a bunch of kids movies on one card/drive and movies and music for the adults on another. Heck I can have access to all of it at the same time. In the past I would always guess which videos to bring and inevitably I would miss several requests, now I won't have that issue.
If you are looking to see the MobileLite in action in even more scenarios, be sure to check out Kingston's Wireless YouTube Channel that Kingston
While Kingston indicates this device is for sale at Amazon.com and Staples, so far I have only seen it at Amazon.com
where it sells for just under $60
(US). For all the possible scenarios where this device could come in handy, that is definitely a fair price.
For the flexibility it provides in increasing your portable / wireless storage, the Kingston MobileLite Wireless earns the Bigbruin.com "Highly Recommended" award.
» Expandable/quickly changeable storage options.
» Compact sturdy construction.
» Good battery life and ability to charge some devices.
» Keeping the little ones quiet for hours at a time….well worth the price of admission.
» Support for exFAT and SDXC means you'll be able to load a lot of very large files.
» Android app improvements (fix lags and add some functionality) are needed.
» App not available on Amazon for Kindle. You can install the apk but this isn't very user friendly.
» Battery percentage indicator would be more helpful than battery graphic.
» Micro SD card slot would be nice, or even a slot to store the adapter.
» Poor documentation for Android.
