Kev, Hertfordshire

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Looks cool with a nice blue light...
Bad points:
Very limited options for using as additional storage for smart phones or tablets etc.

You can add files to this by dropping them in to a specific folder set up on a pc / laptop, but you can only view those files from a device (smart phone / tablet etc) via the free apps, by the file's name. There is no option to view by thumbnail picture, which may be OK for films or music, but is not much use for pictures, which was the main reason I tried this.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up on PC and Mac. Works very well.
Bad points:
The IPad app does not work and is disappointing as it's not yet a total solution. It's almost there though....once the app works it will fulfill all my needs.

Laurence, Cambridge

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Once it's working it is invisible and works really well, especially with the Transporter app on a tablet.
Bad points:
I needed to download loads of software updates to get it to work. These all happened automatically but it took about half an hour for the downloads to be installed and configured, so it's not just a simple bit of software that needs to be installed, it's quiet a few large files

Manufacturer's Description

Transporter is a private cloud storage device for syncing, sharing, accessing, and protecting your digital life. No cloud, no fees, no privacy concerns. Your files are only stored on your Transporters and computers and mobile devices that you authorise.

Access your digital life from any computer or mobile device, back it up, collaborate with colleagues, share with family and friends and sync across multiple devices. Transporter let’s you do all of that with no monthly fees and it’s completely private.

SYNC
The average home today has multiple computers and mobile devices. Syncing content across all these devices is a huge hassle. The “all or nothing” cloud sync services don’t work well with limited capacity laptops and mobile devices, not to mention the monthly fees you have to pay to store more than a few photos or documents.
With Transporter, you can have all your files in one place and easily sync the ones you want on each device. No more running out of space on your phone. No need to constantly shuffle files around to avoid paying additional fees. Transporter makes these issues a thing of the past.

SHARE
The cloud is great for sharing a few photos, but what do you do when you want to share your entire photo or home movie collection? Many of us don’t trust the cloud for something so valuable and even if we did, it would be really expensive.

Enter Transporter. Starting at just $199 with no monthly fees, Transporter is the easiest, most cost-effective, and completely private way to share your media collection with family and friends. You can share up to 2TB per Transporter, which is enough space for 2,000 HD movies, 400,000 songs, or 1,000,000 photos. Need more space? No problem. Just add more Transporters. Our clever software makes sure you only see a single folder regardless of whether you have one or more Transporter devices.

Collaborate
Whether you’re a lawyer, doctor, dentist, financial planner, or mortgage broker, the need to share, collaborate, access, and protect confidential files has never been greater. Sure, the cloud offers convenience, but it also introduces a lot of risk. Who has access to your files and how many copies are there? What happens if your cloud provider has a security breach or failure that affects your data?

Protect
Backing up files offsite should be easy. The cloud seems like a logical choice – until you actually try. If it takes months to get your files onto the cloud, how long is it going to take to get them back when you need them? And who wants to deal with carrying around external drives?
Transporter offers the easiest way to protect your files offsite. Transporter automatically syncs files in “real-time”, so you’ll never forget to backup again and you’ll always have the most recent copy of your files no matter where you are.
You can perform an initial sync between two Transporters on a fast, local network and then easily relocate one to a secure offsite location. Should something happen to your local network, you’ll never miss a beat. Our software will automatically continue to access files from any shared Transporter until your local network is restored.

Access
We’ve all been in situations where we needed to access a file remotely. Whether you’re a road warrior who needs access to the latest spreadsheets or simply want to download a movie while on vacation, Transporter can help. Using the free Windows, Mac, Android or iOS software, you can access any file stored on your Transporter using any supported device from anywhere in the world.
Lawyers can securely access confidential case files directly from court
Doctors can privately access patient files when away from the office
Teachers can now provide students private access to project files
Construction crews will never be without the latest plans while on location
Sales executives will always have access to the latest marketing materials

Mobile
Tired of constantly shuffling movies around and deleting photos to keep from running out of space on your mobile devices? Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy an iPad or iPhone with terabytes of storage so you could store all of your movies, music, and photos right on the device?

The good news is you don’t have to. Your mobile device doesn’t have terabytes of storage on it, but your Transporter does. Use our free app to download a movie for the flight or show friends pictures of your kids. Make a quick edit to your presentation. Whatever it is, Transporter’s mobile app can help. Welcome to storage for the post-PC world.
