      Comments about G-Technology 500GB G-CONNECT Wireless Storage for iPad and iPhone:

      After one whole patient year of vague promises from G-Tech support this product is still not even close to finished. Primarily, the free app is in pretty much the same exact state it was upon the product's release, which is to say abysmal. I'll skip the details there except to say don't even use their app, pay a few bucks for a few others for a better experience. More importantly, don't expect any kind of product support, G-Tech has fallen flat in that area with individual consumers, apparently they don't care about them like they might their business class customers. After 6 months of back and forth via their web support, they agreed to a phone call. There was zero follow-up or fixing of any issues after that, and another PM email went unanswered after that. That's pretend support.

      Comments about G-Technology 500GB G-CONNECT Wireless Storage for iPad and iPhone:

      I bought this because I travel a lot and like taking my iPad to watch movies. This seemed like the perfect solution to the iPad's tiny drive space. This thing works as describes, but it lacks the oomph needed to make it perfect. There currently is no way to set up a file system. So basically all your movies and music are thrown into one large file that makes it difficult to find what you want. Also, it doesn't accept large files (up to 1GB I think??). Therefore, some of my movie files won't fit. That can be a pain for people with the new iPad3 with HD.

      I would recommend this because there isn't anything better than it at the moment.

        Comments about G-Technology 500GB G-CONNECT Wireless Storage for iPad and iPhone:

        This is a great product but there are a few catches.

        The G-Connetc is a wireless storage device that is simple to use and setup but there are a couple of catches.

        To setup the device its a simple as pluging it in and following the instructions.
        The instructions leave out a few things...that the device MUST have a 2.1 amp power supply otherwise it does glitch and there is nothing to indicate that it is not getting the right current, the wifi works but you get errors when accessing the disk drive.
        There are no instructions in using an iPad to set it up, it assumes that you have a mac or laptop with wifi...you have to work it out yourself, since its for the iPad / iPhone / ( no mention of iPod ) you would think that they would include instructions for them.

        would I buy it again "YES" great product from G-Tech, easy to use robust and well designed user interface that performs well.
