Much faster and very easy to use compared to Microsoft connected over a wireless-n network or having to configure shared folders and permissions between all the computers. I am using 3 computers (Mac, XP, and Win-7) to capture 102 VHS tape to H.264 digital format (MP4). Needless to say, there are very large volumes of data being moved between these machines. Forget using a wireless-n network running at 54 Mbit/s. Plug this Dynex Data Transfer Cable into your USB-2 ports and get unbelievable data transfer rates. It was taking me 26 minutes to move 2 giga-byte files. Now, it takes about 2.5 minutes. I bought two of these cables. One is in the Mac at all times where the VHS is being converted to MP4. And the other cable is in the XP at all times - one of the machines used for editing and rendering. The Win-7 stores all of the data and is used for editing and rendering. When I transfer digitized data from the Mac to the data storage drive on Win-7, I plug the other end of...
I bought this because I was sick of having to put files on a flash drive and to copy the files on another computer. This product makes that process so much faster. When you plug it in to your PC (or Mac), a window pops up with software that lets you browse all of your files and you can easily drag and drop items to copy them. It's really simple to use and fast.
Straightforward to use, once the skimpy instructions become clear. Installation of the Dynex transfer program from the "cable" itself (built-in ROM) is required on both the source and destination storage devices (hard disk drives, flash memory, etc.). Doesn't include any "version check", so it's possible to replace new files on the destination device with older versions of the same files if file names are identical. Nonetheless, faster, with less hassle, than using Windows file transfer capabilities over a network, wired or wireless. M$ own "RichCopy 4.x" utility is pretty good, but slow for large numbers of small-to-large-sized files aggregating more than 3 GB in total. Recommended.
