First Look: G-Technology G-Connect

4:04 /

The G-Connect is a concoction of many great ideas of which none is well executed.

I -- download it and then show you what. Actually I don't know -- -- -- in view but he is right here is called the G caught it from gene technology. So let's find out what it. While if you look he looked like a portable drive and it needs. Actually a portable drop but a close look over here -- -- that it has a USB 2.0 port. Now a few years ago that no big deal actually it's great but now. Most if not all of that -- Broadcom would use it three point oh which is. And how fast and over here in a Wi-Fi a label yes this one has a built in Wi-Fi network allows for. Up to five ipads or mobile devices to connect to it and stream -- on its store. Now that's great but it has no batteries which mean you have to clock -- into the power source at old -- to use it. -- -- must for a mobile device. An idea in a -- report -- and Gigabit network port and you can plug this -- -- into an existing network the share. The Internet with the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network. On top of that it can also stream is contents -- the rest of the network. Like NASA. And the problem is the device has only 500 gigabyte. Four -- -- that's plenty but for the rest of the network. That's not so much. On top of that did not report here only run as -- 100 megabit per second when the Wi-Fi network and are. Now in that case it does so months of -- NASA. Now the G economy can look as a portable drive or NASA -- or a -- is so it expand and Andy have. When it was at the portable drive it is both -- and it comes with the use USB cable right here is a wide shape. Allowing you to use so ports from the computer as good thing is one port does not provide Jews in my testing. Actually 01 ports need. Now when won't be as a NASA of all wireless or expand -- he would require a separate power adapter or right here which is very similar to that I've had in fact you can use iPad. There's another cable right here that connect -- USB port of the power adapter. So the -- port of the -- The whole thing about the bus power and you -- -- -- power power is kind of confusing. Now I suspect that the best you for the clinic is to use -- -- ipads generating the data -- -- it. In that's -- actually can drag and drop U and high -- -- content and on the drive right here. And candid would you buy hotel room like mini and use it. Now that connect mobile apps currently only be able to the IOS device is actually -- really well in my testing. He gets his run it and they'd been proud music. Photo and -- -- and played back from the iPad -- up 200 feet away. Is is -- game -- professional obviously. If you don't notice -- amazes me and my -- -- -- -- -- memory -- bring with me everywhere -- ago. So there you go goods it gonna -- make a great almost device is almost a grid for -- right. Almost a NASA and finally -- make absolutely greats. Expand -- an iPad if it had a built in -- which. It doesn't and the question is how much that is almost -- costs. Not -- was -- young colleagues have an -- to all of its -- -- what it can actually do. Public relations dig out there who just -- dot com want to get me in total and this has been the first look at the credit problems you techno.
