Any opinions on this wireless flash drive?

I came across this while surfing amazon. It's a wireless flash drive. It stores data like a conventional flash drive, but it also has a mini wifi transmitter built in. Allows you to send/receive data (photos, video, etc) from you phone or tablet via wifi. Useful if there is not enough memory on your device.

Any experience with it? Only drawback I see is that it's expensive. …BWGY/ref=cm_cd_​ql_qh_dp_t (external link)

That looks pretty neat. I can see where it would come in handy at times. I use a similar device, but much larger and more expensive.

Could be handy to move stuff to your mobile devices or provide them with extra storage. Obviously not for high performance work.

They work reasonably well ( I purchased when they first came out); although the software to make use of them is somewhat fiddly. I dislike the fact that you have to explicitly connect to the drive and take your device off of whatever, other wireless network it's connected to in order to transfer files to it.
