Kingston MobileLite Wireless review

4. Conclusion

The Kingston MobileLite Wireless is an interesting and handy device, which allows you to share files and media easily via a wireless network it creates. It acts as an wireless transmitter of SD/USB media content and offers virtually unlimited storage, especially in devices that doesn't allow you to insert a MicroSD card.

Up to three users can connect to the same device without any issues while your contents will be safe-guarded by WPA2 encryption. In addition, you can use the MobileLite to pass-through the MobileLite network and access the Internet. By taking advantage of the 3.7v 1800mAh battery, you can use the device for about 5 hrs and also provide an emergency charge to other mobile devices.

The free app available for iOS and Android devices is adequate, although do not expect to experience everything wireless HDDs provide. During our tests, the device was stable for a range of up to 6 meters and with the WiFi indicator showing a 2-bar wireless signal. Multi-user media streaming tasks were performed pretty well, even when we transferred HD videos. At 15m, we were able to download the 400MB video in less than 6 minutes. Configured in a bridge mode the device will limit the available bandwidth of your internet connection (router). We experienced a 20% less throughput, and we admit we expected a better performance here.

We also found some limitations that could be fixed with a future app updates, such as adding multiple file selection option for quick transfer/view/copy/delete.

However, most of these shortcomings can be overlooked due to the price of $70 - less than half of what wireless drives cost. So the Kingston MobileLite Wireless can be recommended at least for what it primarily delivers, a good overall multi-user universal media streaming experience.
