SanDisk Con­nect Wire­less Stick

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT - John Law

this would mean that you would have to make a trade-off be­tween con­nect­ing to the In­ter­net, or stream­ing and wire­lessly stor­ing your con­tent on the USB drive. Well, not with the Con­nect Wire­less Stick.

To keep things sim­ple, SanDisk man­aged to find a work­around in the de­vice's an­tenna de­sign that you could ac­tu­ally con­nect it to both your de­vice and the In­ter­net at the same time. On that note, you'll still need to down­load the SanDisk Con­nect app in or­der to fully uti­lize the de­vice.

Once con­nected on two fronts, the ap­pli­ca­tions we found with it were nearly end­less. With a Full HD video loaded onto the drive, we were able to stream the video di­rectly from the Con­nect Wire­less Stick with no frills and stut­ter­ing, even from a dis­tance of 20 me­ters from it. The same story could be told when we con­nected an ad­di­tional two devices to the Con­nect Wire­less Stick.

An­other more prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tion that the Con­nect Wire­less Stick was in­tended for is the wire­less stor­age of pho­tos taken us­ing our smart­phone. The av­er­age pho­tos cap­tured on smart­phones th­ese days are larger than 2MB, and the abil­ity to wire­lessly trans­fer our pho­tos into an off-site de­vice was heaven-sent, as it also freed up our phone's in­ter­nal stor­age.
