Imation Pro WX Wireless USB Hard Drive

imation-pro-wx-wireless-usb-drive

By David Ponce

As Uncrate points out, being the “world’s first” often results in your having to charge an obscene amount for your wares. That said, we kind of like Imation’s wireless USB hard drive, if only because once again, any effort to ditch wires is welcome by us. Featuring transfer speeds of 15MBs/second and a range of 30 feet, the drive can store up to 1.5TB of whatever you think worthy of keeping around. If your main workstation is a mobile computer you can see how this setup can be useful as you won’t have to actually walk to your drive and tether your computer every time you want to back something up.

Sadly, ditching the wires on your external drive will cost you a pretty $450.

    I don't really see the point of this. I mean, why not just plug in the external drive and get a MUCH faster speed? I mean this is cool, but rather an expensive pointless addon.

    30 feet? At least give me B/G range! And a little better speed would be nice too…

    the Apple time capsule has done this for years?

    How is this different than a $100 NAS? I don't have to use a dongle for my NAS and I get better than 30' range AND more than one computer can access it.

    Dude, the thing looks like a cross between a cell phone and a remote control! I will have one…..When they are less than $20. Mark my words though! Hey, get that marker away from my words! No, I wasn't serious! Do you take everything literally? Dude! Put the cap back on that marker or I'll break your eye!

    I don't mind wires, as long as you zip them or just take care of them, you'll be fine. Maybe it's just me…
