I wonder if you could take the SSD out and put maybe a 1TB 2.5" HDD in? Use the SSD as the boot drive in a PC, and gain a serious amount of Wifi accessible storage?

unless the ssd has the wifi module built into the controller than thats a no. the reliability of the flash storage to be used as an ssd has to be also questioned. The form factor and connectors in use to switch the storage out. If you want expandable look for other personal cloud options.

I doubt it, HDDs use much more power due to the physical moving parts and spinning platters. SSDs are essentially just flash memory which needs very little power. Might be possible if you leave it connected to a power source but that would defeat the purpose of the device.

If only I could find the full model name of internal SSD I would buy it as you still can't pick a 64GB SSD for under 30 squid

In the user manual it says: "DO NOT OPEN CHASSIS: No user-serviceable parts inside."
bummer

I have a feeling that there is crappy SD card inside (instead of full SSD drive)

Even if it has a SD card in it, it's still pretty cheap considering how much a 64gb card is.

Would be useful to know if it is just an SD card because you could then replace it for a much bigger one.

what a mysterious device

Much more expensive on Ebuyer and Ebay. Seems like a good deal.

cheapest price at mo but not by much. Heat.

Few reviews state that only photos on IOS. Cant find a dedicated app for it on App store.

User manual states it include Dnla server, so in theory many apps will support this drive (8 Player, VLC etc).
Voted hot, bought one. Thanks op.

Price-matched on Amazon now.

I have a couple of alternative products that don't have dedicated internal storage but have both an SDXC slot and USB port. Very handy products but that may suggest that this one is using an SD card or similar inside instead of a proper SSD drive.

Transfer speeds?

No stock though as we have all the UK stock currently.

Thinkin' the same... Not sure if the battery would last long enough, if at all!

I have a similar device from the same company, mine you insert an sd card (so can swap cards for more storage upto 32gb each in mines case) and can use it as a wifi storage device for things like phones and tablets... seemed a very good idea at the time, but I have barely used it.... its also fast enough to stream movies over wifi without lagging/latency..

Likely to be SD card rather than SSD. Makes more sense. Mind you. It would be great to have one where you can connect a USB drive instead.

you can with this one for £17.99:

That's one of the ones I have - excellent product.

It is advertised as being an SSD... it must be breaking rules if it really has an SD card inside, and not an SSD.

Any I being too naive?

No way this has a SATA SSD the manufacture site is here

storageoptions.com/pro…4gb

This looks like an OEM unit with intermal flash, speeds slow interface is USB 2 likly an ARM CPU with all i/o internally via USB (e.g to wifi) so don't expect SSD speeds or an SSD inside. I've not seen one but read the reviews. Also Rymans sells them poort reviews on the Maplin site though only 2 reviews! Any more details or some input from an owner would be helpful cheap at the price.

For iOS it looks like photo sharing only. According to a review on Maplins web site.

Here is the user manual d29intt7x8yvsf.cloudfront.net/ass…pdf

Heat to OP looks a bit like this but cheaper a lot cheaper and Dabs has them in stock
amazon.co.uk/Kin…0QK

Looks like you need apps for access but most phones have browsers to the desktop options might work. It claims DNLA support but don't expect real time down-coverting of MKVs at 1080p with DTS audio having said that MX player supports this on my tablet with files <12gb!

yes, the manual says only photos can be stored from IOS. It's no use to me for that reason.

Or you could by the 32Gb version with this expensive travel suitcase. (or is it the USB drive that is expensive?) oO

Very cheap even just for the SSD

One of the reviews on Amazon says much smaller than a 2.5" ext hard drive, so must be SD card as some have surmised. Very tempted though.

To be clear no one has verified this contains an SSD. It has some Flash storage but to classed as an SSD it needs to have a SATA interface or mSATA Looking at this it looks more like a SD card on an embedded system. The point of the SATA / ,mSATA interface this the throughput measured in Gigabytes per second. This is only USB2 and looks like a much slower / cheaper design.

Also not sure why its is listed as an SSD as no one other than DABs and cconline calls it this. It is USB based flash not an SSD. I'd love to be proved wrong a picture of the inside would settle it!

cclonline.com/pro…89/

Looking at the box shots on eBuyer it reads Wireless Hard Disk, I think the marketing teams are keen not to let facts in the way of a good tag line for the box - This might go some way to explain the description on DABs

Review on DABS say it compared well to the Kingston specifically better battery life but he just says his unit was left on one night and compare this to the Kingston stream a movie. System on a Chip unit like the tend to hit deep sleep on idle so I don't think this a fair comparison or even relevant.

Yes but many of us would prefer to wait until Amazon get stock with that being the case, thanks.

Very good point - they completely ignore all the queries but they have the time to check a competitor's stock levels and comment on availability.

And more importantly monitoring HUKD when they could be doing something helpful/useful. Although, having said that, I am sure that most of use wouldn't expect them to prise open the product case to look at the connectors inside.

A Seagate Portable WIFI drive might be simpler

Hate how companies have HUKD accounts now. Especially ones that pick and choose what questions to answer...

But for £12 more you get the 64gb included with the OP one. This is more flexible due to user provided card.

Anyone know if you could plug a card reader & SD card into this to act like a photo vault to copy photos to while away?
