Indicators

From left to right we have power, battery status, DC power light, and the WiFi indicator. The battery light doesn't indicate that the drive is charging, it just glows from green to yellow to red depending on the level of the battery. The range for the yellow light is so large that it's the one you'll see most often.

USB 3.0

So the first of the things to do is get some things on the drive. This can be done wirelessly, or via the ethernet if you want, but it's most likely that you'll want to transfer some files from your weapon of choice. Plugging it in via the USB connection and it appears like any other drive. You can drop the data in any format you choose, so because we're a little detail obsessed here at OC3D (you can't spell OC3D without OCD) we arranged our folders into obvious types. Then it's a simple drag and drop.

ATTO and Crystal Disk Mark

Thanks to the USB 3.0 connection the data transfer is pretty speedy. Corsair claim 120MB/s and 119MB/s for read and write, and although we didn't quite hit those heady heights we saw a very consistent 113MB/s and 112MB/s in both ATTO and Crystal Disk Mark. Certainly a lot faster than your average thumb drive.

nice review and a nice bit of gear, My only concern would be how easy it will be to replace the battery, as they only have so many recharges before they don't hold the charge so long. And that will be long before the hdd is dead

I want one now, in my rig i only have so much storage and this would most certainly help with my music library and other crap i have on here

The HUGE selling point is you can use this on WiFI or usb so if you have a smartphone with no unlimited data plan and you like to sync your devices for back up: you will not waste any precious data usage for that. Which is helpful if you have many music files,movies and etc...

Really interested in one of these. Can see it coming in so useful when travelling. Especially for streaming films to tablets while on the road and storing photos while you go. Good review too, thanks. I shall be looking to pick one up when they come out.
