AirStash uses WiFi to spruce up the otherwise “common” flash drive.

Take any assortment of flash drives you see at your typical electronics store. Besides the storage capacity and drive design, there really isn’t anything all too different about them. Sure, some will perform better (read: faster) than others. But overall, a flash drive is a flash drive. It’s only when manufacturers get “creative” do we see anything and everything underneath the sun USB-ified. But every now and then, something truly unique comes along. The AirStash is one such drive, incorporating WiFi and media server capabilities within the device to expand functionality exponentially. What’s great with the WiFi support is that now you can transfer files to and from the device when it’s plugged into a computer (charges drive too!) as well as when it’s not. It’s like a portable network drive in your pocket.

At $99 it’s not the cheapest flash drive for the amount of storage you get — in this case, 0GB. No, that’s not a typo. There is absolutely 0GB of storage. Instead, the integrated microSD/SD card slot allows users to their own cards at will. To me, this is much more beneficial and nicer than typical integrated storage inside of a flash drive. Considering that SD cards currently go up to 32GB, the AirStash looks to be a pretty sweet little device. Now that is a flash drive worth dropping a few extra dollars on, no?
