Unlimited Sharing. With online and cloud storage providers, the more you store, the more you pay, and most have restrictions on the size and type of files you can store. With Transporter, you pay one time and can share thousands of files of any size or type with anyone.

Always Protected. Getting copies of files offsite continues to be a challenge for consumers and small businesses alike. Using external drives requires you to copy to the drive and then physically take it offsite. Online and cloud services can easily take months to copy or restore files. With Transporter, a full copy of shared files is kept on each Transporter and changes to any files are automatically reflected on other Transporter devices.

Anywhere Access. We've all been in situations where we needed to access a file remotely. All files stored on Transporter are available anywhere in the world from any computer or mobile device that has access to the Internet. You can also set up your Transporter to keep a copy of specific files on your computer so they're available even when you're offline.

100% Private. Because Transporter is a device you own and control, all your data is stored directly on the Transporter and is only shared with people you specify. Shared data is transferred directly between Transporter devices and computers of people you authorize and is never stored online. Transfers between Transporter devices are always encrypted during transit.

No Fees. Ever. With Transporter, you know exactly what it costs right up front so you'll never be surprised with monthly fees.

Dead Simple. Best of all, using Transporter is as easy as sending an invite to the people you want to share. It couldn't be any simpler.

4 out of 5 eggsPrivate cloud storage

Pros: Very easy setup: 2 cables to plugin; create account on website; does some magic and finds your device and configures it for you

This device works autonomously. It copies data between computers (Mac + Win7 PC in our house; Macs at our son's home). I bought it for two things.

First, to stop having to nag my son to get pictures and videos of the grandchildren - he bought two and can't stop talking about how he loves them.

Second, to backup my Macbook. I have twice spilled drinks into it. The last time I did it I lost all my data.

A few days about Transporter sent me an email saying their iPad app was available. Its free in the Apple App Store. Its as if the app lets me carry around my 340GB picture library in my iPad. What it really does it let me access them as if they were all stored on my 32GB iPad.

Cons: The Transporter comes with a short ethernet cable. The one I received was broken, i.e. one of the clips on the connector.
If it weren't for this it would have received a 5star rating.

Other Thoughts: After you register, they send an email. It has a link to a page filled with videos. Its like they put a user manual into video. The videos themselves are well written, have great audio, and get to the point. Most are under 90 seconds.

At first the number of videos was intimidating - don't let this scare you. Many are duplicated - there are versions for Windows and Mac OS X. My favorite video is also the shortest - how to replace Dropbox with Transporter.
