    This comment is the only reason I read the article.. maybe they'll bring out the whole Jolly Rancher spectrum. Then get sued.

    "Asus scores well on the flexibility front. Travelair AC allows for up to five simultaneous connections"
    Now if this only has slow transfer speeds for a single user, how slow will it be with 5 simultaneous users all trying to stream movies?
    Can't understand why manufacturers are not moving to USB 3 (or even USB 3.1 type C / Thunderbolt 3) ports - faster transfer speeds and quicker charging, it isn't like it has not been around for a while now.
    Also a good idea would have been to be able to use it as a charger for the phone or whatever.
    I still prefer to have a few large micro SD cards handy (64GB and 128GB - slowest transfer speed is 48MB/s up to 95MB/s - a little faster than the Asus). Plus I have found that my third party phone case will allow me to keep a couple extra cards inside it, so I always have plenty of space. Found this very handy when I was in hospital for extended stretches, I had someone else put prerecorded free-to-air TV shows and movies from my HTPC and PVR (I can even remotely set the PVR to record up to 4 channels whilst I was incarcerated in the hospital) onto the cards, that way I had something to keep myself entertained, without exceeding any phone data plan.

    Does it matter? It's the functionality it provides that is the important issue.

    I'm not impressed... it is approaching £90 when you factor in a decent 128GB microSD card. This should broadcast 2.4 and 5 GHz simultaneously. In comparison, right now you can get a WD My Passport Wireless 2TB (Recertified) for a little under £100.
