[The Source] SanDisk Connect 32GB Wireless USB Stick (SDWS4-032G-C46) $24.99

http://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/brands/sa ... /108043788

32gb wireless USB drive for 24.99. This is the upgraded version of this one here:
http://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/computers ... /108021420

pros: improved transfer speed and battery life
cons: the old one lets you swap the microSD cards. I believe this new version does not have this option.

price comparison:
$50 at NCIX and London Drugs

Must..... not... buy... I want to, but I have too much wifi share devices collected thru my years with RFD which I think has better features...

Dlink Shareport GO DIR-506L which was on sale a couple of years ago for $12 - It has a big battery and can power a portable HDD or any USB memory stick and you can also use it as a WIFI repeater/extender... You can use a cheap 32GB USB stick (or a 128GB) and still be able to use the internet (or even use it as a WIFI router for hotels with hardline network jacks)... It's expensive right now at Amazon https://www.amazon.ca/D-Link-Shareport- ... B0095F5ACE

Toshiba Canvio Wireless Adapter ($27), doesn't come with a battery but since it's micro USB powered, you can basically just use it with a portable USB charger and works the same as the DIR-506L (acts as a wifi-repeater)... very useful as it is a small unit that when I forgot my DLINK shareport in one of my travels, good thing it was in my laptop bag (it's a tiny device) and when the hotel WIFI only allows two connections, I was able to use it as a repeater allowing my kids and all their devices share hotel's one WIFI acct... It's not as versatile as the Dlink Shareport Go (since it won't work as a WIFI router) but it does share the WIFI and USB device that is plug into it, and the kids can watch the videos stored on the USB and still be connected to the internet...

Hi, Thanks for the small updates/reviews. I didn't know such things existed. Now I need to get one.

So, the Toshiba device can act as a Wi-Fi hot spot? But how do you connect the Toshiba device to the internet?

I also had that issue where in a hotel, there's a limit of 2 or 3 devices. Kids weren't happy haha

The Toshiba Canvio allows internet passthru, which you can setup from your phone (Canvio app, Android was no problem, but with IOS version, I can't get to work) you can direct it to connect to your hotel's wifi. Any device that connects to the Canvio will allow access to any attached USB device (USB HDD, USB stick, etc) and will also provide internet to any device connect to it... The hotel will think there's only one user (which is the Canvio)...
