Which do you prefer, AirStash or iUSBport? I would also like to here pros and cons of both devices as you see them.
The reason why I'm asking this is because I recently bought my first tablet, iPad 4 16Gt Wifi-only. While I thought I made the right decision capacity-wise (I do not need tons of apps and I do not need to store my videos/music/photos in my iPad), I was left with an uneasy feeling if I had enough space for those occasions I for example travel and want to take so many movies and TV shows with me that I max out my space. I had decided, though, that I wouldn't pay another $100 for the 32Gb model as the price per Gb is too much. Could I afford it? Yes, but this is a matter of principle. I then came across these Wifi-cloud -devices and found the answer I was looking for. I did look at devices such as Kingston Wi-Drive, but based on reviews and forums, it is clear that people love most their AirStash and iUSBport devices. But which one is better?
I think they both are similarly priced. From what I see (having read about these things just today), one big difference is that you can have more space cheaper with iUSBport (as we all have USB sticks and USB HDDs lying round) as opposed to AirStash which uses SD-cards that usually come in smaller capacities. On the other hand, SD-cards seem to make AirStash more compact as with iUSBport you would have USB sticks and USB HDDs attachted to it). I also read that AirStash is resticted to max 4Gb-files, I'm not sure what the deal is with iUSBport. I know this matters to many of you, but for me, who has only SD content (as in max 2Gb videos), it does not. I haven't read about ease of use and compatibility that much so I would be interested to hear your stories regarding these devices and an iPad. Right now, my choice would be AirStash combined with a 32Gb SDXC-card. That would give (way) enough extra space in a supercompact package. However, as I've read about iUSBport only a little, I might not understand it fully.
