5 out of 5 eggsLove my SanDisk Connect

Pros: Easy to set up and get going. 15 minutes after opening the packaging, I had two iPad minis and an iPhone running last week's episodes of "The Mindy Project", "2 Broke Girls" and "The Walking Dead".

Put it on your keychain and go everywhere with it. Going to test it out for the drive from Toronto to Quebec City next week!

Cons: Couldn't get to work after plugging it into a wall charger, worked after a couple of tries. UI for watching videos could use a bit of polish, but considering how easy it was to get up and running, I'm willing to forgive.

Other Thoughts: Thanks newegg, I've been looking for one of these bad boys since July! Ordered it Thursday, got it Friday morning. Now THAT's service!!

3 out of 5 eggsIt will get there someday

Pros: Great for use with devices that don't have expandable storage option like the Google Nexus 7. This is the sole reason for my device is limited to 8GB.

Easy to stream movies from.

Cons: The speed....or should I say....lack there of.

I really didn't expect this thing to be blazing fast, but it's pretty lackluster. Plugged into my laptop, I got 8 MBps write speed and 15 MBps read. Not too bad right?

Lets look at the wireless numbers...

Transferring a 275 MB file from the internal storage on my Galaxy S4, the write speed was just a hair under 900 KBps. KILObytes per second! And for the read speed....a whopping 1.2 MBps.

Figuring out how to transfer files from my phone/Tablet to this thing was not an easy task. Well...transferring the files is easy...but finding out how to transfer ANY file and not just photos and video was a chore. I almost considered sending it back, restocking fee or not.

The only way to send non-photo/video files is to make sure your device's download folder contains the files or the folder that contains them....etc.

Very big lack of music streaming functionality. A shuffle option would be nice.

When you plug it into a USB port on a computer, wireless turns off. Even some chargers seem to turn off the wireless when plugged in, like my GS4 charger.

Other Thoughts: Can you not upload files from a laptop using wireless? Not taking off an egg since you should simply be able to plug it in, but come on.

This thing is in much need of a software and hardware upgrade for future versions.

3 eggs because I can't do 2 and a half.

Bottom line....It's not useless, but it could be a lot better.
