Kingston Digital introduces 128GB Wi-Drive for storage-constrained iOS and Android devices
Kingston this week added a 128GB capacity drive to its Wi-Drive line, which hitherto only included 16GB, 32GB and 64GB offerings. With the Wi-Drive being aimed mainly at storage-starved tablet and smartphone owners, the 128GB drive seems like a good addition to the lineup and should make Kingston's wireless storage solution attractive to even those who own smart devices with external storage support.
The higher storage capacity aside, everything else is the same as before, meaning that the latest Wi-Drive drive retains the overall ease of use that helped its 64GB cousin score a stellar 9/10 in our review back in October. But this also means that the 128GB model also retains the many small annoyances — including its refusal to power up while charging — that forced us to dock one precious point from its review score.
“The 128GB Wi-Drive allows even more sharing on Wi-Fi enabled devices and is a perfect addition to the existing 32GB and 64GB capacities,” Kingston Digital said in a press release. “With integrated Wi-Fi and four hours of battery life, Kingston Wi-Drive offers easy file sharing and pocket-sized portable storage for Wi-Fi enabled devices such as Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android devices, Kindle Fire and more.”
Up to three devices can access the Wi-Drive at once using either a standard web browser or the free Wi-Drive app, which is available from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and the Amazon Appstore. The 128GB Wi-Drive is available on Amazon for $176.
