It's a smart looking unit and has an impressive number of function LEDs on the front panel.
I mainly liked how easy it was to connect. It took me just ten minutes to get it connected and operational.
The Myditto application, which comes on the `User' USB key is slow. But I found it 5-10 faster to use Windows Explorer on my home computer, accessing the Myditto under "My Network Places". In that case I get a transfer speed of 7-9 mbps over my 100 mbps network using Windows or `Vice-Versa' copying software. (Dane-Elec have told me the slow transfer speed is being fixed in the next release due by October 2010).
A more important problem was that the "last modified" time stamp of the copied files on the Myditto are 7 hours plus or minus a few seconds different to that of each the source file. This might be caused by incorrect handling of the time-zone under Windows. It caused my backup program to copy again, because it thought the file(s) have changed with the new date/time.
When I used Windows or my backup program, `Vice Versa', to copy to the networked Myditto drive, this problem did not occur. (Again, Dane-Elec have told me they are looking into this for correction in a future software update).Read more ›
