    Big dissapointment

    I have a lot of music and want to be able to play it wherever i go. IPhone and IPads have very limited storage. I have used all storage then you get the annoying messages that storage is also most full go to setting to adjust. When you go to settings yo can't do a dame thing. What a useless message. Then when update are available, i have to removed most of my music so that there is enough room to down load the update.

    I received my SanDisk 128 GB connect wireless stick flash drive today. Load all my music on and and 2 movies i purchase in iTunes. Response is very slow. I am able to play music but cannot play either movie. The application just hangs.

    Don't waste your time or money on this.

    Doesn't play movies all the way through

    I use this stick to keep all my kid's movies so I can play them on my iPad. At several points, during most movies, it will stop playing and exit out of the app. I have called Sandisk support to try and problem solve this, and Sandisk has sent me a replacement under warranty. The new one does the same thing. I also have a friend who purchased this and it kicks her out of movies every 10 minutes. Not worth the money!

    Waste of Money

    Great idea but poorly implemented. From my personal point go view a waste of time and money.
    Date transfer this item, when plugged int the USB port on my iMac is frustratingly slow to the point of desperation. A folder containing 13GB of pictures took almost 50 minutes to transfer.
    If I have pictures in sub folders the folders I do not seen able to individually accessible them on my iPad, What I get instead, when opening the main pictures folder, is all of the pictures in the subfolders appear to be in the one main picture folder. Useless really with thousands of photos all seeming to be in a single folder.
    The app for iPhone and iPad is poorly executed to and not very user friendly or manageable.
    I expected better of SanDisc. This unit is expensive for 128GB of memory and as I said in the title, to me its a waste of money!

    Very disappointing

    A good idea, but poorly implemented with a very user-unfriendly interface and inadequate user instructions. It turns out that you can only transfer photos and videos from your iOS device if they are in the Photos album, everything else must be done (music, movies, documents, etc) by connecting to the USB slot on your computer, which defeats the whole purpose of having a wireless drive. The browser interface does not work either. Will be returning this to the store as it does not do what it claims to.

    Doesn't Work with iTunes

    Apple promote and sell this product for a purpose it cannot achieve! I bought this for my daughter to store movies and TV shows for her overseas trip to stream to her iPhone and iPad as the Apple Store product notes tell you it can do. She purchased a load of stuff from iTunes and then discovered that Apple have blocked the streaming of any iTunes purchased movie etc. So, it cannot work for the purpose Apple sell it to you for. So purchase movies from iTunes, load them onto the stick, that works fine but they won't play. The forums have heaps of warnings yet Apple continue to promote and tell you in the product features that it will store and stream movies when it won't. It won't work from iOS8 onwards. Yet don't think as I did that an old iPhone with iOS7 will work because the Sandisk App can only be downloaded from the App Store if you have iOS8 or above. A real Catch 22!

    Not useful

    I bought this because an Apple Store assistant suggested to me to use it with my iPad. I returned it to the store next day. It didn't come with a good instruction manual and once connected to wifi it was impossible to turn it off; all PC and smart phones in the house were constantly connected to this stick, eating up a big chunk of my personal data.

    Poorly Designed/Explained User Interface/Experience

    One would expect great user experience and functionalities if you're paying 25% more for 87.5% less storage capacity (comparing to 1TB Porsche USB mobile hard drive). So basically I'm paying for the wireless connectivity here, which turns out to be the most frustrating part of using the product. Unintuitive UI. Frequent need to reboot the device. Miserably poor functionalities on desktop computers. I can think of many other ways to achieve the same result without using the clumsy process this device offers.

    One to avoid.

    This product is a clever idea executed extremely badly. The controlling iOS app is too basic and user-unfriendly. There's a lack of a decent user manual, despite there being guides included on the stick. Connecting wirelessly to a Mac took me two hours, as it's done via a web interface which refused to recognise the stick. You can connect via USB but then why bother - you can do that with an ordinary memory stick.
    As for transferring files, USB connection works fine, but iOS integration fell down again - it won't transfer anything over 100MB, meaning MP4 video files are next to unusable. Since the portability and share-ability of video files is one of the main selling points this seems like something they should mention. Wireless transfer times are also much longer than USB transfer would be.
    When it came to using the files I did manage to get onto the stick, neither my Sony TV or Sony Blu-Ray player would allow the stick to be used via the USB port, and it goes without saying that even the "smart" TV won't access it wirelessly.
    This product was bought for me on the recommendation of an Apple Store employee, which shows how little product knowledge Apple are giving their staff these days. I'm not able to support their recommendation that this is a good product to use with Apple products. In fact, I wouldn't recommend using this at all.
