First post so be gentle! I'm shopping but need to be sure iPad is the right one. iPad2 is a fantastic produce. My wife & I have played with my son's iPad & like it very much. But, when we tried to connect his external HDD it gave an error. This product would be ideal for my wife & I except for external storage. Here's what we need. We're going to Alaska next July & we'll be taking lots of RAW photos & also 1080P video. That kind of data eats up hard drive space like crazy so we'll need external storage. I've read about Hyperdrive & Colorspace which could be solution but they mention that it's compatible with HD 720P video not HD 1080P. I suspect that iPad will not play 1080P but all I want to do is store it on the external HDD until we get home. So, SDHC or external HDD like Hyperdrive & Colorspace. If I can store to these we're good to go. Anyone have experience with these?
