Poor - doesn't do it very well
on 2 April 2014
I received my device and after testing seems it also doesn't operate as efficiently as I would have liked.
I followed the instructions, used ES Explorer on Android and paired the device up, I even set it up as a Wifi extender and although it kinda works, it does everything as a snails pace.
Turning on Wifi takes a while and you need to wait for it to set-up & enable. The only way to access your files and the internet (at the same time) seems to be by setting it up as an extender which can be inconvenient. But one of the selling points of the device is its ability to stream & share data on hard drives / USB sticks wirelessly on one or multiple devices and it doesn't do this well.
As a test; I have the same movie on a netbook shared via windows on my home wireless router vs the EasyAcc connected to a USB 3.0 32GB pen drive. The netbook streams fine with the film opening within 10seconds and plays without buffering, the EasyAcc however did struggle as it took longer to load, was not playing the film as smoothly and occasionally found some buffering.
Also transfering data between devices through the EasyAcc is slow compared to Windows sharing via my home router.
Overall, I'm not impressed with the device and it doesn't operate as I had hoped. I've already thrown away the box the device came in otherwise I'd consider asking for a refund.
