Nice accessory for my apple products

on 3/6/2013

I purchased this item for the sole intent of adding extra storage to my i phone & i pad. After some trial-error set ups (the set up instructions are not the best), I was able to wireless view the contents on my USB drive. I'm still testing this product but I can say that it does what it claims.

Easy to set up and to use

on 4/24/2013

Must to have if you move around and need Wi-Fi. 1. Easy to set up the wireless. I did not change any thing, just use the password coming with the kit. Works fine in my office and home. 2. If want to get access to the files on the USB plugged in to the 505L, need to download and install an app for my android tablet. It's not as easy as Step 1. 3. The power output is lower than my original charger of my tablet. Took a longer time to get 100% full charge. 4. Tested it in my home, set in the basement, good to excellent signal on the second floor. In other words, it provides a powerful wireless to the internet. 5. Finally, might be more important, the user needs to read and follows the instructions. With a permanent marker, I wrote these steps on the surface of 505L for easy use in different locations.
