What customers say about "Features"
Seagate STDC500400 Wireless Mobile Portable Hard Drive Storage
  • I have connected this to my laptop (USB and wireless), Nexus 7, iPad, iPhone, and Kindle Fire. And all of them works fine.
  • Transferring data is easiest through the USB connection with the laptop, but can be done via wi-fi.
  • It is a great addition to an iPod or iPhone and has worked great in car for keeping job information and data for my job.
  • The battery life is reasonable and I have no issues with connecting the wifi.
  • The Seagate apps were useless and the wireless thing wasn't happening at all.
Western Digital My Passport Wireless 1TB Portable External Hard Drive
  • It has an SD card "plug" which I leave in just for a little extra security in terms of not getting debris inside it.
  • It automatically copied only the new photos. We shoot in JPEG and RAW at the same time. It copied both images.
  • Once the files are copied to the Passport, you can review them on your IPad at full screen with their App. Love this device.
  • Slow WiFi Performance and SD Card Copies. Disappointed with this device.
  • I connected to my computer via wireless and changed the network name and added a password. After that I could never connect via my Android.
