I'm just here to point out how horrible the spec listing is. There's no explicit statement of quantity and types of ports or slots for the storage devices. The pictures show a single type A, a single type micro B, and a SD slot. The specs list compatibility for micro SD with an adapter, but what are the other two? (Obviously you can just go look it up elsewhere, but with all the comments pointing out the poor pricing here, the least Massdrop could do is provide thorough specs for convenience. And I do know that the other functions are the battery backup and the ethernet, but that isn't immediately clear looking at the drop description, is my point.))
I don't know what MassDrop is thinking on this one. I just ordered mine on Amazon for $34.95 (without the card) with same day shipping. You can pick up a 64gb card for $8. C'mon MassDrop make it a deal if you want us to wait for shipping. This is an embarrassment.
FYI - this goes for $40 on amazon.ca. It doesn't come with the 64gb sd card but at least you have an option of choosing the right card size/speed

Not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but I thought you all should know this:
http://smile.amazon.com/Kingston-Digital-Companion-Expanded-MLWG2/dp/B00KU2E9IW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441865573&sr=8-1&keywords=Kingston+MobileLite+Wireless+G2+5in1
At the time of me posting this it's priced at $29.99 through Amazon.
Could have been cheaper maybe 29 or 39 CAD... Canadian Tech retailers are selling em for 29 and 39 depending on time.
I have one of these which I purchased from a (the?) major online retailer back around Christmas.
I bought a 128 GB SD card for it which I ripped a bunch of our kid DVDs to so they could watch them on their Kindles. It works fairly well for this purpose, but there is no web-based player, you have to install Kingston's rather clunky app (iOS and Android), and in their navigation app there are no thumbnails for the movies. That makes it rather difficult for our four year old who can't read yet to figure out which movie she wants.
As an Ethernet bridge, or WiFi access point this thing is pretty awesome though. We recently went on vacation, and I just paired all our devices with this and as we went from hotel to hotel all I had to do was update the device's connection to hotel ethernet or WiFi and all the other paired devices would just work.
It will also accept some kind of 3G dongle, but I have never tried that.
You are supposed to be able to hook up USB storage devices for more space too, but I have only used the USB for device charging. It was again useful for this purpose on our vacation because the power went out due to a storm. One of my kid's Kindles was almost dead, so it was handy to hook this up and extend the life up through bedtime (a couple of hours) :)
I'm pretty happy with this thing, but I don't use it as much as I thought I would, mostly due to the software UI that's too complicated for my kids to watch their movies in the car on road trips.
I'd give it a 3 out of 5.

Does this provide any kind of file share for the attached storage? Like SMB (windows file share), FTP, NFS or something. So that way you could get at the files from a computer or more importantly use Kodi (www.kodi.tv) as a media player on android / kindle devices. That would allow you to have a better UI with thumbnails and what not.

Not that I'm aware of, but it would be handy if it did. It's possible that their app is just a layer on top of a more common protocol.
That's cool! Alas, it's $20 less (in Canadian funds) at a local store. That mayn't include an SD card, but it also doesn't require shipping fees or a wait, which probably more than makes up for the differences.
Can someone please let me know if 32gb (and lower) SD cards can be used with this unit? Many thanks!!!
Unless you miss that Amazon sale - the wait isn't worth the discount. Like just $5 more and you get it next week.
Nope. $29.95 is without SD card. With 64GB SD card, then $64.99. MD is not any better right now, unless we reach $54.99 + $5 SH = $59.99. Not by much.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've got a bunch of SD cards laying around, no point in paying an additional $30 for this one.
Bad timing. These are on sale right now for $29 from the big A. *Edit didnt notice the "free" 64gb card. NM. *Edit 2, I found that exact SD card for $18.99 CAD. You can buy this setup for $60CAD, about $45USD.
This is a really cool device. Any reviews of it? Also, is it android only or iOS friendly?

IOS too.
