Not used a toshiba one, but the usefulnes of these is limited by the apps they provide to access content on them and similar.

 

Problem I have with the seagate one I used is that it didnt do wifi direct, just made an accesspoint, so if you were out and connected to it, then you lost your 4g connection while you were using the device.

Appears to be a reasonable device,

 

just with the usual caviets around streaming speedss etc, (likely also has a slow CPU running the whole thing too)

Thanks, just called into WS Wairau Park and picked one up. Only really want it for the SD Card Backup, great for storing photos while travelling.

If they have it using wifidirect then it will be sweet as on android. The ones I have will connect to another wifi network and then nat its network on to that network, so you have some internet access, but it is horribly slow (15 megs on a good day since its basically a crappy wifi repeater in that config) - no way to get the mobile to keep using cellular while transfering files to/from the drive on the seagates.
