Toshiba FlashAir III 32GB SDHC review
Earlier this year, Toshiba introduced the FlashAir III Wireless SD Card, a third generation memory card that serves as its own wireless LAN access point, allowing you to share images, videos and files wirelessly. Compared to previous generation the FlashAir II Wireless SD Cards, the latest models offer enhanced photo sharing and management features, you can quickly designate which photos to instantly share and manage files from a web browser on a PC more easily.
In addition to Class 10 speed for data transfer, the FlashAir III Wireless SD Card's Internet pass-through feature allows users to access the card and Internet (via your separate wireless router) simultaneously - enabling the ability to upload images in real-time. Using a wireless LAN chip, The FlashAir III Wireless SD Card is accessible to any wireless capable computers, smartphones or tablets, and can support simultaneous access from up to seven devices. In addition, the built-in Wi-Fi access point also allows for transfers without an Internet connection.
Toshiba FlashAir III Wireless SD Card is easy to set up. Just like the regular wireless LAN access point, the wireless connection can be secured with WEP, WPA or WPA2.
Toshiba also offers a free FlashAir mobile app that allows you to share via iOS and Android-based devices. The FlashAir III Wireless SD Card is backed by a five-year standard limited warranty.
The Toshiba FlashAir III Wireless SD retails for $79.99 MSRP3 for 16GB and $99.99 for 32GB. The latter model is what we are having in our labs and we will shortly present it to you.
