PRODUCT WALKTHROUGH



So here is the unit again. You can see how the media slides in easily. On the top, you have the Power and Copy buttons. It doesn't get any simpler. You just have to slide in the media, click Power, then Copy. The LEDs flash, indicating the unit is copying the data from the media to the internal HDD, and stops flashing once it is done.


And that's it. Phew… almost broke a sweat on that one.


The transfer of data from the media storage to the internal HDD does not take long. The speed of transfer however will also depend on the quality of the media. Some copy and transfer data at faster speeds.



The front of the device is loaded with LEDs. The top ones indicate the device's status (ON, battery level, transferring data, etc…).



The remaining LEDs are to indicate which slot is occupied (what type of media is inserted in the device).



You insert your media into the front of the device. My SMC slid very smoothly into its slot, and the LED on the top immediately came on. The device supports;


" Compact Flash Card type I/type II (CF)
" Smart Media Card (SM)
" Memory Stick (MS)
" Secure Digital Card (SD)
" Multimedia Card (MMC)



You plug in the power adapter and the USB cable into the side of the device. The USB port is covered by a small piece of rubber which you have to pull aside when plugging it in. The device connects via USB 1.1, instead of the faster 2.0. This is inconvenient, to say the least. USB 1.1 has a data transfer f 12MBps, whereas 2.0 has a data transfer of 480MBps. This is not a huge deal if you are only transferring a bunch of small images, however if you are planning on using the Best Store to transfer large files, you will want to pack a lunch.
