    These type of products could be amazing if they were Bluetooth or some other form of wireless. Using them via WiFi gives rise to one massive caveat: you're locked to that WiFi, which you cannot browse with.

    • Steven L
      Steven L 10 months ago

      Incorrect. You can set this device up to run on your home network, accessing the Internet or the contents of the disk itself.

      No router required, it creates it's own WiFi hotspot that you can connect to.

    It streams music alright accross 3 devices(since I solely got it to host my entire itunes/music library on a 128GB stick, which i can wear around my neck. , I suppose only VCD/ DVD quality movies it would stream seamlessly with video, but when you get to HD and HD+ you would have issues. The only drawbacks I have with it is the wireless connectivity with pc/mac. They should have made an app for it, or it showed up as a shared folder in finder/windows explorer. You can access it via windows explorer/finder using webdav buy using its iP address, on it's wifi network. found it to be slower than if it were to be smb. Also it's lack of support of playback audiofiles in wma format via the app. They might improve on that in future updates. I wont recommend putting personal files on it, when using it in a public space with the WIFI turned on even when you have set a security password to the wifi access. It works fine for me as a device that can store my iTunes library(free up space on computers) and use when plugged in, and windows media player can also import a playlist for windows media player if plugged in a windows machine, and stream music to my iphone/ipad when I am out and about without having to worry about disk space on them. Always back up your music library on other drives encase something goes wrong with it, and not have it solely stored on this.

    Excellent presentation! Helped me immensely. Can you transfer files both ways "FROM" the stick and "TO" the drive? I haven't tried it yet...using Mac. Thanks again for a very very helpful video!

    • James Talks Tech
      James Talks Tech  2 years ago

      It's been a little while since I tested it but I don't recall the option of saving to or pulling files from the connect wireless stick via the share sheet. I've since given the stick to a friend but if I can get my hands on it for testing again, I'll let you know for sure :)

    • James Talks Tech
      James Talks Tech  2 years ago

      I'm afraid this isn't possible. You have to use the Sandisk Connect Drive app to interact with the stick so this doesn't work directly like internal storage.

  • Matt Klapman

    One can stream 3 video streams if the total aggregate bandwidth does not exceed around 20 Mbit/s and the WiFi traffic in the area is not congested. So the claims are true within a reasonable video rate and low congestion. A DVD rip can be HD quality at 2Mbit/s, so try Handbrake to limit to that bandwidth for the encoding process.

      I don't have the stick myself, but if I'm not mistaking, you can make it automatically make back-ups for you, and then it will delete the photo's from your device (so it will only be on the disk). But I'm not sure cause I don't have the disk myself!
