    I've got one, but I still tend to use it wired into my laptop and haven't thoroughly tested either wireless or the direct SD card transfer

    The SD transfer works great, just make sure to set it up in the settings. I used last year in Cooperstown, didn't want to lug a laptop with me.

    Guess I need to figure out how to get into the settings. No settings needed when it's connected via USB.

    That would be the whole point of the this particular drive for me... From SD to HDD without needing a laptop. That's sort of the point, as I see it.

    I have, money well spent. Got the 2tb model, and I take it when I am not going to be around a computer. Remember it is a battery operated device so the transfer will be a little slower, but that wouldn't prevent me from ever buying another one. I set it up to copy the card when inserted, you wait a second or two for the card to be recognized and the transfer takes off. The lights will flash while transferring so no guessing on if it worked or not. Also it's a wireless router so I can view them on my iPad, there is an app for it and the battery life is pretty impressive. No real world numbers for battery life, but you can charge it via a USB cable and a block that you use for phones and tablets.

    The only problem that I could see with this, is that if there is a problem and some of the files didn't transfer, then how would you know without looking at a screen?

    Thought the same thing too, counted them and double checked a few times with no issues. So you could always double check on a mobile device, phone or tablet to be sure. Which I do anyway before I erase the card. There is a lot tech in the device, and with them being fairly new I was hesitant at first. It will do a lot more than what I use it for.

    It would be nice if it could report via a lcd screen the count of files transferred.

    Exactly, nothing for that but I had adjust the SD settings and the wifi settings. You can use the app or if you have the wifi setup you can connect and use your browser.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back...work has been busy and I've been dead tired every night! And working on photos from the vacation...

That other person got miffed when he took the file to get printed and found it was low resolution. After a little back-and-forth with this other person, I learned the file size was severely lowered by the iPad. Just wondering if perhaps it only pertains to emails, or if iPads in general compress photos.
    When we tested it at home, the files we downloaded were regular NEF files and JPG files, unaltered as far as we could tell. As someone else said, this is likely due to the mail app on iDevices asking you about compressing the images when you send them. It seems to keep them in hi-res internally.

    No, it doesn't remove them from Amazon - you'd have to go in and specifically tell it to do that.
