    GNARBOX GNAR128V1 reviews

    128GB Portable Backup & Editing System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for me.... I saw some reviews stating issues with wi-fi, the unit becoming overly heated (hot), etc., but for me the thing has worked like a charm from day 1.� �Connects to my iphone and ipad flawlessly.� I can plug my new XQD card reader up directly via USB 3.0 and it transfers the big RAW files perfectly.� As far as uploading to Lightroom CC - you simply go to your files folder on the iphone or ipad and choose the Gnarbox and upload the file into LR CC with no problems.� Can't wait to take this thing on the next trip with the new D850 and GoPro and not have to worry about also lugging the laptop.� A bit pricey but overall very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from save space I bought this for a trip to Botswana. It saved a lot of space since I always travel with my iPhone. Was a bit disappointed that a week after I got this one the 256Gb came out for the same price. It's okay I used an external thumb drive. Pro- Easy and fast Transfer Saves space over a laptop. Nice sealing Long Battery Cons. Heavy for its size but it stayed in the hotel the whole time. Gets pretty warm when you transfer images Smaller internal HD size (Fixed with the 256 GB Version) overall. If you travel and want to back up your files without using a laptop this is a must. Recommend to others: Yes,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the long wait This product finally showed up on my door step one random day after I placed the order a 1 prior, since this was a kickstarter product. But my first experience was using this device to edit my 4K video content on the go. My main goal for this product was to remain laptop free and just work off my iPad Pro. I attempted this and was successful so far in the file transfer and import of files from drone,GoPro, iPhone and DSLR. Now I can edit my content and upload directly from iPad to YouTube without a my MacBook Pro. The best part is that every device fits in my camera backpack!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cannot connect External Drive to Micro-B USB3 port I purchased this with the intent of backing up my CF card to an external drive without the use of a computer when traveling. I noticed that it had USB2, USB3, and Micro-B USB3 ports - and thought it would be ideal to connect a CF card reader to the USB3 port on the Gnarbox and export via the Micro-B USB3. Before I purchased this I contacted Gnarbox to see if an external drive could be connected (and used) using via the Micro-B USB3 port (in addition to the USB3 and USB2 ports). I was twice assured by Gnarbox that the Micro-B USB3 port not only could be used for charging but an external drive could be connected and used via this port. Once received - Gnarbox then told me that NO - you CANNOT connect an external drive to the Micro-B USB3 port. Other than that, it seems to be functioning as described in a good compact footprint.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works just like they said it would! Great tool that lets you leave the bulky laptop at home, will be a godsend for travel with baggage restrictions. I love how they've made it rugged to survive abuse. Two wants though... 1-Better battery life, its decent and lets you do basic back actions, but you do much long term edits or major file transfer to another hard drive and its gonna use the battery up, though if you are doing that you'll probably be somewhere you can plug in. 2-USB C port, that would have made it future proof and allowed for fast charging of the device. Otherwise really happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you think you need this YOU DO! Do you travel? Do you have lots of gear? Do you want to have all your data backed up and stored in the ultimate way?!?!? THIS IS FOR YOU! This product performed better than I could have ever imagined. It's the perfect child from a Server/Hard Drive/Ediing Software combination. No matter the trip it has always done great! Cold, Snow, Sand, Dirt and Kids! I'm an adventurous snowboarding instructor who lives in Utah and loves to travel. Whether it's a frozen backcountry spilt-boarding tour, a sandy beach with the family or a 5-day deep backpacking trip. GnarBox gives me the comfort to take all the photos and video I want with no worries about losing the data or needing to back up. I use a combination of the Sony a6300, GoPro Hero 5 and DJI Mavic Pro. With the Gnarbox I don't need to have as many SD cards on hand or my laptop even with me. On my longer trips with no power, I was able to daily download my SD cards and review the day's photos and videos. The battery lasted 6 DAYS!!!!! Then upon return, a quick hook up to my computer and the files were neatly transferred to my main HD. So if you think you need this YOU DO! Traveling Europe? Going outta town, leaving power behind or just want a great way to quickly edit and post! This is EXACTLY what you need! It's an epic change to travel photography! - The Photo is from Red Castle Lake, High Uintas Utah. It's 11 Miles in and we were there for 4 days! GnarBox made it possible to take all the videos and photos I wanted with no worries of losing data or not having SD space.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from In-op Gnarbox - Not believing the hype Stewed over ordering the Gnarbox in search of a mass-media device that would pair with my iPad Pro for photo editing, etc. Took the reviews (good and bad) with a grain of salt; took the woo-woo Silicon startup hype with a grain of salt too, and ordered the 128 gig model when it went on sale at B & H. 1. Thought the price-per-gig was WAY too high - I can buy 8 gigs of hard-drive storage for this kind of money - But... Gnarbox promised an app that would integrate with the iPad for RAW file editing with Lightroom - And that's the Holy Grail. 2. At this price the manufacturer could (and should) have included the REQUIRED power supply for charging the Gnarbox battery. Sure, I have a couple of iPhone chargers, but I don't have any extras to dedicate to this function, and would consider it essential to have one with the Gnarbox all all times so it could fulfill its mission in life - to be an ongoing part of a portable work-station. 3. Found the instructions convoluted and contradictory. Just one example: First step in manual is a firmware update, but this wasn't documented in the online quick-start videos. Because the device wouldn't charge, I never got further with this issue. KEY missing info: The ONLY feedback provided by the device as it is charging is the unintuitive pair of LED idiot lights, which, because of a device issue, displayed a pattern NOT documented in any of the provided instructions. There were numerous other anomalies and weaknesses in the documentation that would likely be of no consequence if everything booted up and ran right, but such was not the case for me. 4. Because the device failed to charge, I was unable to work with the app/interface, but the Gnarbox tutorial that walked through it convinced me that the operating system is poorly organized and overly complicated. I want a mass storage device that lets me download content from cards or USB readers, shows me a simple file structure, and gives my iPad Pro access to any and all files I choose to store on the device. Period. I considered asking B&H to replace the defective unit I am returning, but I frankly don't think Gnarbox has earned a second chance. I'm searching and, if necessary, waiting for a better solution. I know that Gnarbox is pitching a 'new and improved' model for release this Fall. I've lost faith in their ability to deliver what they promise or what I need. Last word: As ever, B & H handled the order, delivery, and return flawlessly. (I have every expectation the credit will show up too.)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, could be improved I am primarily interested in backing up my photos while on the road. Gnarbox does that job well enough. It takes getting used to starting up and app on my mobile device in order to copy files from a flash card to another device, but in the end it's a negligible inconvenience (it is a bit more awkward that I have to change Gnarbox settings via the app on the mobile device in order to connect Gnarbox as an external drive to a PC, but that's also a nitpick). The speed of copying files is about what you'd expect of a transfer from a flash card. The app, however, regularly crashes on me during the transfer. It does not seem to affect the transfer itself, though. The differentiating feature of Gnarbox is the ability to edit and export photos on the fly. I use that only sporadically. Editing features are more or less equivalent to the Basic Lightroom adjustments, which should be sufficient in most instances. There is also a cropping tool and 90-degree rotation tool. The most significant absence in this toolset is the ability to straighten horizon (or rotate the image slightly and crop to achieve straightness). Overall navigation of the app is not as intuitive as I would have wanted. Clicking back while viewing a single full-screen photo always brings me back to the top of the catalog, while I would want to go back to the date folder where that photo resides with the photo retaining focus so that I can look at similar ones. There are a few other nitpicks that require getting used to - and probably need to be improved in the future. Overall, a useful accessory that could and should be improved in the future.
