"Not perfect but a handy utility"4.0 starson by ricevillage
Pros: Executes the basics as claimed; Transfer of data to a USB personal bulk storage device and sharing files is convenient.
Cons: Streaming video needs to be converted, but it can be downloaded; large files have same-old same-old slow transfer issues no faster than local backup, but that may be largely a trait of the storage drive.
Summary: I have a 500 GB WD HD attached, and for bulk backup and storage that's accessible anytime online, it does indeed execute well. Sharing files with others is a hugely convenient feature; our family tends to shoot a lot of photos at functions, and this is an easy way to share as well as allow others to back up themselves. Just be sure your choice of HD spins down; a Flash drive renders that moot.
