    And, don't forget the Airstash

    Just got my new one and, at $99, it's much more price worthy than the Hyperdrive. It only works with SD cards so three of my Canons that use CF cards are still a problem.

    No HD video support for movie streaming makes that product a no-go for me.

    This product definitely has potential. I'm sure it's developers will be tweaking very soon

    Mi-Fi is a 3G Personal Hotspot for sharing an Internet gateway.
    The other 3 are storage and/or media streaming solutions. The HyperDrive uses the iPad camera interface for transfers. The Seagate and Airstash use Wi-Fi. These are all iPad compatible external storage solutions which allow you to have on-the-go access to your pictures, videos, and other files. I myself am looking for something that will let me carry around 50+ HD movies which I can then play on my iPad. The Seagate solution seems best suited to that.

    You can come close to 50 with

    a 32 gig card in your Airstash. My Mpeg4 movies average around 661 meg each. Cards are cheap.

    I prefer to leave most of my movies on the HDD of my Mac for long term storage and take with me those I will view on a trip. I can't take a trip long or boring enough to cause me to watch 50 movies.

    If you use the airstash is there some kind of sd card adapter so you can plug any type of memory card in to it?

    Direct view from hyperdrive

    Is it possible to watch videos that are stored on hyperdrive, on ipad, without transfering them to ipad.
