Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB Wireless Flash Storage for iOS Devices Review

The Wi-Drive looks great and of course will not look out of place sitting next to your iPhone. I have to wonder, though, is the design a little too similar? I am not sure if Kingston had to make the device look so much like an iPhone, but they've gone and done it this time. I reckon next time they could be a little more original, though. There is just something that feels a bit off about it. The device is lightweight and functions rather well from the outside. There is an on/off button on the side of the device which flashes green when charging and holds a solid green when fully charged.

On the front side of the device next to the Kingston logo are two blue LEDs - one that indicates Wi-Fi is enabled and another that indicates wireless activity from connected iOS devices. You can connect up to three devices at one time. On the back of the device there isn't anything exciting going on with just some details about the device including the serial number and so on. The device casing is made of a fairly high grade black plastic that smudges easily - if that is something that annoys you, it may bother you. The device is pretty solid and while untested, it should be able to withstand a few drops here and there.
