The FileHub RP-WD009 from RAVPower is a clever gadget that combines several functions. It can be used as a mobile WLAN hard drive for tablets or smartphones, or as a backup tool to copy data from an SD card to a USB device without a computer. The FileHub also acts as a router, access point or WLAN repeater/bridge.
This makes the RP-WD009 the perfect companion for photographers and videographers who want to back up their data on the go without having to carry a laptop with them.
Design and processing
Visually, the small black data server can convince by a simple, inconspicuous design. If you don’t take a closer look, you might think you have a simple power bank in front of you. With dimensions of 113 x 77 x 23 mm (L x W x H) it is also not much bigger than such a bag and therefore fits in every pocket. The case is only made of plastic, but it feels good and in no way cheap.
On the top, next to the RAVPower logo, there are five indicators for LAN and WLAN connectivity, memory access, and operating status. Extended on the right side is the on/off switch.
On the left side are the SD card slot and two buttons. One changes the WLAN mode from 2.4 to 5 GHz and back, the other starts the backup function and copies all data from the SD card to the connected USB drive.
A USB type A, Micro-USB and an RJ45 LAN connector are located behind a cover.
