There’s no way to directly expand the storage capacity of a tablet that doesn’t have a memory card slot, but the SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive offers an indirect method.
Those who have a device with a microSD slot can store music, pictures, and video on removable cards, so these don’t take up all the tablet’s internal storage. SamDisk’s accessory is a workaround, allowing iPad and Android users to access the contents of SD cards, as well as some additional storage built into the wireless drive.
Build and Design
There are a number of somewhat similar accessories on the market, but none of them look anywhere near as good as this one. Its combination of black plastic with metal trim looks professional enough that it could be set on the table during a meeting of a board of directors.
Unlike some rivals, there’s no slot for plugging in USB thumb drives. On the other hand, none of those rivals have any built-in storage themselves. SanDisk offers two versions, one with 32GB of internal capacity, one with 64GB.
A micro-USB slot is there to charge the Media Drive, as well as to load content onto it from your desktop or laptop.
Naturally there’s a Power button, as well as a collection of LEDs to indicate the status of this device: charging, connected, etc.
