Wireless storage is rather abundant, and one thing I have noticed over the last few months is while most of these devices in some way share components or the same build materials, the main thing that sets them apart is how much time they put into their Android and iOS applications. After all, that is what you, the end-user, get your experience from. Transcend, being a leader in memory solutions, recently jumped in to the wireless storage market, launching the StoreJet Cloud wireless drive.

As this is a "Cloud" solution, Transcend, with their promise of high quality devices, have tried to take the best of both worlds and combine them into one device creating the StoreJet. A device that is said to handle five simultaneous users supporting Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS devices, with six hours of playback capability.

The packaging for the StoreJet has been designed to invite you into the cloud. You will find the drive tucked away behind a window giving you a glimpse.

The back of the packaging goes into detail about the product specifications and compatibility.

The drive itself is rather small coming in at 99mm x 54mm x 16.5mm. Build materials consist of an aluminium frame with a black plastic shell giving the drive a rather pleasant aesthetic design similar to what we found with the PQI Air Bank.

On the back of the drive we found the capacity listed, with ours being the 32GB model.

The top of the drive houses the power button inside the aluminium shell.

Looking at the bottom of the drive we found the USB port for charging the device, with a pinhole reset next to it.

Powering up the drive, the green LED illuminates after a few seconds, and the LED will switch over to blue to let you know the wireless connection is ready.

Popping the rear cover off the StoreJet we found a 3.7v Lipo battery with a 2000mAh capacity.

Internally the StoreJet is rather impressive, housing a RTL8196C network processor, along with 32GB of Toshiba MLC asynchronous NAND in a 2 x 16GB configuration. At the bottom there is an Alcor Micro AU6998N FSP.

Moving over to the StoreJet application I found it to be very simple to use. Here we have the settings menu from which you can choose to change any number of options from security options to upgrading the firmware of the StoreJet.

The basic settings menu allows you to change the SSID of the StoreJet, along with wireless modes and channel.

As with most of these cloud storage devices, the StoreJet too allows you to connect to an access point.

Upon entering the application, we find ourselves in spilt screen mode with one side showing us the contents of our HP Touchpad and the other the StoreJet. Along the bottom you will notice the menu system has a camera app. This allows you to take pictures from your Android or iOS device, and then they are automatically uploaded to the StoreJet, never to touch the storage capacity of the actual tablet or phone.

If I'm completely honest, having reviewed quite a few of products similar to the StoreJet, I must say that Transcend has done a remarkable job here. Where most companies simply don't put enough time into their app to refine it, Transcend has done so and even taken it a bit further with the device storing photos taken from the app directly.

Performance was quite good as well, never experiencing any disconnections from the device, even when I was quite a distance away. Connecting the StoreJet to my wireless access point was very simple to setup and within seconds I had a secure WPA2 connection, without messing about in my routers settings.

Pricing of the StoreJet Cloud at the time of writing is set at $71.99 for the 32GB model in our review today. The larger 64GB and 128GB models are listed at $96.99 and $179.99, respectively. Transcend backs each of these models with a two year warranty.

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
