This review is from: Transporter 2.0 PrivatePeer-to-Peer Cloud Storage Drive - CTR1D12US1R (1TB)
Pros: Very easy setup: 2 cables to plugin; create account on website; filetransporter.com 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.
