SanDisk also offers a step-up version for consumers who are looking for more options and connectivity for their entertainment needs. The SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive has the capability to stream up to five high-definition movies simultaneously on tablets, smartphones and computers.
The Connect Wireless Media Drive works with a free SanDisk Media Drive app, which can be downloaded onto an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Kindle Fire, Android device, or with a USB cord that enables transfers from a Mac or PC operating system. Pictures and videos that are taken with a digital camera can be shared by using the SDHC/SDXSC card slot that is built into the device.
These pocket-sized drives require no cables, router, or Internet connection to stream its content to other devices. The drives simply show up in a device's Wi-Fi settings as its own network, allowing the user to easily connect to the SanDisk.
