    I just ordered mine! Looks like it won't be delivered until after the iPad.

    I like the device, its a nice concept too, however I think I will save about $97 and just use my AirVideo app as I do on my existing iPhone on the new iPad as that is all this item is allowing at the moment anyway.
    Streaming and consuming media, but at a cost and a carry device for $100.

    With the AirVideo app it is only $2.99 and no hardware to charge and carry, except for your iPad or iPhone and a small app running on your desktop as a server.

    File storage can already be done with QuickOffice, AirShare and other apps from the App Store.

    I've had one for about a month. It works as advertised. I like that it charges via the USB port on my laptop or desktop at work, so no batteries. It seems to last a while on a charge, and wifi performance is as good as my home router. My sole gripe is the clunky file browsing interface - once you select a file, you have to start over your browsing rather than returning to the folder you were using.

    Oh, and I dunno why but Windows doesn't like it via wifi - I can only work with files when it's plugged in.

    You watch the content on the Airstash via Safari. It will work fine with the IPad.

    I still think a Bluetooth memory card adapter woulD be much better, less money and you wouldn't be limited to storage as you can just stock up on memory cards..

    That IS what the Airstash does. Look at it closely, there is an SD card at the end. Albeit it's wifi rather than Bluetooth...

    Well, if it's got a slot for mc then that's great, I didn't see it..

    Also, it's better that it uses wifi rather then Bluetooth as bluetooth consumes more battery I think.. However, if there is no wifi, then no transfer..

    With Bluetooth you don't need wifi connection...

    Thats pretty much all it does is let your SD card go wireless.

    Problem is it still looks like Vapor-Hardware....

    Yeah, well, the one in my briefcase looks real enough. Also, Fry's in Downer's Grove had something similar on the shelf last time I was there if you're having trouble getting this exact product.
