I bought this with the idea that students would be able to back up their video files at the end of film club. After transferring a 50 second video I don’t think that will be happening. My first issue is that the Medrive app compresses the video drastically. Secondly, I’m getting about 0.8mb/s upload speed, even when I’m stood next to the router

The added bonus of mapping the server as a hard drive means I can still use my PC to load up saved documents or drop files in to share.

FINAL VERDICT: great for small files, easy to use, let down by the slow transfer speeds. 3/5
