    Thanks for letting us know, I hadn't seen that before.

    Also, to add to some earlier posts, there is is also a DW-21. They are coming think and fast with developments which can only be good for us! The entire range (at the time of this post(!) can be seen here!

    Edit: this may also be of interest http://www.adata-group.com/index.php?action=product_feature&cid=9&piid=207

    Decisions, decisions!

    Good to know. I'd like to maybe get a second one and if there's one with a longer-life battery, great. I will look later.

    Thanks, Gabriel!

    The DW21 looks good for battery life and transfer speed. My husband noted that the DW17, which I ordered, had only USB 2 and he said it was a bummer that it didn't have USB 3, so it could transfer faster. And now DW21 does! I will see whether it's available in the U.S. if not, I will try to get from Asia.

    I found the DW21 at Newegg.com for $110 and have ordered it for next-day delivery, so I hope to try it out soon.

    I usually like to buy via Amazon, but Amazon carried only the two cheaper models for some reason.

    I'll be interested in hearing your thoughts on the 21, I've tried so many iPad gadgets but this is the real "stand-out" so if it is another winner I'd be happy to by another upgraded version.

    Maybe. When I found the DW17 after reading this thread and ordered from Amazon, they had 10 on hand, and now they have five. Amazon doesn't seem to carry the DW21, though.

    Sure, I will post on the thread when I've had a chance to kick the tires on the DW21.

    The DW17 has worked so far as advertised, and I'm eager to try it out while traveling. My husband is busily ripping movies for a trial run.

    I hope we'll help drive demand, so the company will keep making them. The devices will be a real convenience if they hold out. I love that they're compact and allow easy use across devices, including iOS and Android.

    I also like the versions which double up as a means of storing power to enable recharging kit when away from mains electricity.

    Yes, good feature. I've got a few external batteries, but it never hurts to have extra juice.

    DW21 has arrived and is charging. It's a bummer when electronics come needing charges, instead of ready to come out and play.

    I've streamed a couple of movies on the DW21, and it's worked without a hitch. I'm a happy customer!
