Ask Max: Hard Drive Recommendation for iPad
I am planning to take a long trip and would like to download enough movies to keep me occupied. I have purchased a mophie to keep my iPad charged, but I need a recommendation on an good external storage device in order to download the movies. Can you help?
LaCie's FUEL is an excellent choice for this purpose. Similar to your home router, it creates a small wireless network which can stream to an iPad. In fact, 5 devices can access its content simultaneously. If you want to watch in HD, the FUEL can stream to three (3) devices at the same time. You can quickly transfer movies and other files from your computer through the USB 3.0 connection for on-the-go entertainment.
You won't even have to worry about power on that long trip. The FUEL has a battery that lasts up to 10 hours!
