Review: Toshiba FlashAir 32GB Wireless LAN SHDC Memory Card Reviewed by: J.Reynolds Provided by: Toshiba Firmware version: 2.02
Welcome to Myce’s brief review of the Toshiba FlashAir 32GB Wireless LAN SHDC Memory Card.
Here is Toshiba’s summary specification for the FlashAir 32GB memory card -
Here is a picture of the card that I tested, and its packaging.–
So the card has a fairly large capacity (32GB) and is reasonably fast (Class 10 – at least 10MB/s sustained write speed). However, the real differentiating feature is that the FlashAir card allows one to connect to any appropriate target device (such as a smart phone, notebook or tablet computer) that supports a WiFi connection so that pictures can be transferred wirelessly without the need to remove the card from a source device (such as a camera).
I can't help but feel that it is a miracle of modern technology that something so small can hold 32GB of NAND storage and a Wi-Fi chip.
When power is supplied to the FlashAir card in a source device the card puts up its own Wi-Fi network. It is a simple matter of connecting a target device to this Wi-Fi network to be able to view and copy the pictures on the card. Essentially, it is as easy as that and there is little or no need to complicate things by moving away from this basic understanding.
Now let's head to the next page, to look at Myce’s Testing of the FlashAir card.....
