SanDisc Connect mobile hard drive with WiFi !!
I just purchased a SanDisc Connect 64 gig mobile hard drive. I'd never heard about these before this week, but believe it will come in very handy on long trips with the kids, as well as for use in the trailer. 64g will supposedly store about 40 hd movies, and it also has an SD card slot so you could add a bunch more memory as well. I found mine NIB on eBay for $45 shipped. They a quite a bit more at the store.
This is a very small device that will store media like movies pictures or music, and allow up to 5 different wireless devices to hook up to it wirelessly via a WiFi connection, and then stream the media to those devices at the same time (each device can watch or listen to different things). It uses a rechargeable battery, and will last about 8 hours on a charge.
I just got it, and tested it out with an iPad and was very impressed with the playback. Very clear picture, and no issues with playback like stopping to buffer, pausing.
I was originally going to go with a DVD player for the truck, but this is cheaper, is portable, and we will be able to use our iPads and smart phones which we already have.
Thought I would share for those looking for media and entertainment for the family on the road, and for those rainy days!
