Wi-Fi microSD Adapter (Rev.2), Wi-Fi SD Card
Add Wi-Fi® file transfer ability to your existing SDHC™ compatible digital camera using this Wi-Fi microSD™ Adapter from Monoprice!
This adapter is in the form of the popular full-sized SD™ card and features a built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi radio. The radio is powered by the camera (or other device it is inserted into), has a maximum indoor range from 16 ~ 55 feet, and has a maximum outdoor range from about 82 ~ 164 feet. The adapter is a stand-alone wireless hotspot and requires no other networking or applications to function.
This adapter requires an SDHC compatible full-sized SD card slot on your camera. It uses any microSD card up to 32GB capacity (not included), though class 10 cards are recommended if video is to be captured. Connecting to the adapter is as simple as selecting the adapter for your wireless network, then opening up a browser. Up to 5 users can simultaneously access the card to browse or download the contents.

Questions and Answers
The EyeFi is more expensive by a factor of 1.7 to 2.5 however, it comes with memory installed. This card requires a memory card to be purchased separately and inserted (which also allows the memory to be changed out or upgraded. Even with the added cost of the memory card, this was significantly cheaper to purchase. (I happened to have an extra microSDHC card lying around.)
My camera would not format the microSDHC card while in the WiFi SD adapter. I formatted it in a standard adapter and changed it out and it worked fine without any issues. I found it to be very fast in my Canon SLR even in burst modes. I could detect no lag in performance while it was in a SLR. I did not try it in a point and shoot.
The software for this card is minimal. once connected to it's wifi, using any browser, you get a thumbnail of each picture taken. It connects easily with my laptop or Ipad. I connected to it via my Android Note 3. It can be somewhat quirky as my Android seems to want to find Google.com. Now for the kicker. The software seems to have problems downloading multiple pictures. The user can click and download one picture at a time or select multiple pictures and download as a Tar file. I could not determine a download path and automate the download as I can with an Eye-Fi card. For me, the software limits the card's use. I may use it only as a means to email pictures occasionally. I won't use it to download the card on a regular basis. I have to admit, the Eye-Fi card is not without it's faults in this area however, its software is light years ahead of this card.
While I could connect easily to this card via my Android phone, Ipad, or Laptop I could not connect to my desktop as it will not connect to a wireless device. My desktop has a wired connection to my router. I could install a wireless card though, I have not tried it because the software is so limited. If you use a laptop, this should not be a bother. My Eye-Fi has software for my desktop.
This card has no cloud capacities
PROS: Flexible memory capacity, Quick WiFi Access, Easy to setup, Price
CONS: Less features, not desktop friendly,
For the casual user, it's perfect. Take pictures, use the card to transfer it to your phone, and upload to social networks without the need for a computer or USB cable. For professionals that shoot RAW, wifi transfer isn't the fastest or most efficient way to transfer images so I don't recommend it for that. There is a use for some professionals though. I shoot a Canon 5Dm3 and with the dual card slots, I plan to write my main RAW images to the CF card and send a JPEG copy to the SD card. (Using class 10 microSD cards, I haven't noticed a difference in read/write speed but that's just a casual observation.) This will allow me or clients to access pictures on the go if they want to upload a shot. Makes on the go proofing really easy if you want to check on a tablet or phone. I also plan on uploading pictures to social media when taking my camera on vacation and other casual events.
Overall, I think it's a great price compared to other similar products while at the same time giving you more flexibility in terms of storage. I will definitely recommend to others looking for wireless capability for cameras.
PROS: Cheaper than other wifi capable cards.
Compatible with any camera that accepts SD cards.
Storage is changeable allowing you to give wireless capabilities to endless microSD cards.
Pictures accessed via browser, no proprietary software or apps required.
Can be accessed by multiple devices at the same time.
CONS: Devices connect easily to the wifi 'network' but sometimes come across problems accessing the files through the browser. Closing and reopening the browser has helped and I often have had easier access using Internet Explorer rather than Chrome. Sometimes takes a little time but I haven't not been able to access the files.
Unable to choose specific pictures to send. Accesses entire card (as far as I know).
Can't use wifi for internet on other device. (This isn't a con of the product, more a limitationof the hardware not being able to be used to connect to 2 networks at once.)
PROS: Just works
You really should use this download jpeg due to file size issues.
Watch out for camera time out. If the camera goes to sleep, the wifi will turn off. You've got to expect that.
PROS: Very inexpensive.
I have tried other solutions wifi-eye but they needed custom software and really complicated. This is simple and elegent
CONS: The manual says type in anything into the browser, but that it did not work.
I had to type in the IP address directly into the browser. 192.168.4.1. Something in the DNS
PROS: It solves the problem of being able to transfer pictures to a tablet regardless of the operating system. Can't beat the price and works as advertized !!!
CONS: Minimal documentation
PROS: Easy to use and opens up real time sharing of pix. Just plug in the adapter with a microSD card and you are set to stream pix to anyone in range.
Beware of issues with microSD memory cards that you re-use from other devices. In some cases these cards cannot be formatted in your camera. This is because they are incorrectly partitioned. If you create a brand new partition (using Disk Utility on a MacBook Pro for example), the card will then format correctly. This is NOT a problem with this Monoprice product but with the microSD memory cards themselves, how and where they were used before in other devices.
I also wish to add that I am extremely impressed with Monoprice support. I received an email from them asking me to submit a review of this product, but I had not received it yet. Much to my surprise I received another email suggesting that I contact them again if I did not get it, so they could ship me a replacement, but I received it on that same day. Service like this is rare in the technology business and this has encouraged me to refer Monoprice to everyone I know. I am a repeat customer who purchased another product a few months ago that was difficult to find and even when I found it, the reviews from other customers was very discouraging. The Monoprice product I got did not exhibit any of the problems that reviewers complained about in relation to other products, in spite of the fact that it cost significantly less.
Thank you Monoprice! You can now count me as one of your loyal repeat customers!
PROS: Great product: Unbeatable price, easy to install and super easy to use, an excellent and long-awaited upgrade to my camera! Fast transmission rate between card (in camera) and other devices!
Excellent support from Monoprice.com!
CONS: The manual says to connect a device to the card and once connected, to open a browser window and type anything. On my iPad mini, this would not work with Safari or with Chrome, but when I used the IP address given to the iPad by the Wi-Fi microSD card, it worked perfectly!
PROS: Inexpensive. Easy to use. Works as advertised.
PROS: Works fairly well with mobile browsers, just connect to the wifi and go to 'Mo' and you get a list of files. open or download all. Takes most Micro SD cards.
CONS: Raw compatibility is poor. Its not for pros working on RAW with 1 card. If you have dual write capability you can put raw on one, jpg on two. The browser works ok, but saving is a little clunky.
Also doesnt work with Canon's 'mifi' menu settings.
