My Thoughts

I'll be honest, I've had this little device for about 2 weeks now and I'm still learning how to use it. Set up was a bit tricky and a little confusing at first. I had to read the manual a few times, and I'll admit, that could just be me. I definitely liked it as a battery back-up, especially while traveling. It does last a long time, but then when it needs to be charged, it takes a while. I have used it to file share and free up some space on my computer and that was pretty easy to do. I love the router or a wireless bridge function, especially if you're staying in a hotel. However, setting up the interface was very confusing. You have to decide between the two. The router will convert a wired network (Ethernet cable) to wireless and the bridge connects to an already existing wireless network to create your own secure Wi-Fi network. I suggest reading the instruction very carefully to understand. Once I got it set up, it worked good. Overall, it's small and light and easy to travel with. It's a good little gadget to have while traveling. Once you understand it, it's good.
