I don't see the advantage of the cloudftp device over the air stash and a large sdxc card or several sdhc cards. The air stash is small by comparison so it travels easy compared to both the cloud device and some USB hard drive. And the speed is dependent on the speed of the storage. I have streamed 1080p on the air stash too with no problem. Actually, that's not saying a whole lot because the bit rate of the encode is more important than the resolution. That why so 50GB blu ray is not the same as a 2gb rip of the same movie. Right now, I'm streaming to 1080p rips from the Air Stash at the same time (one to iPad the other to iPhone 4S). I'm also downloading a third movie to my laptop. All of it is working great. I don't see any reason to think that the Air Stash is slow...unless you put a slow SDHC card inside. BTW, I'm talking about the Air Stash A02.
