Buffalo MiniStation Air 500GB

Buffalo MiniStation Air Wi-Fi hard driveThe Buffalo MiniStation Air (HDW-P500U3) is a portable hard drive with a 500GB capacity, USB 3.0, built-in wireless capabilities, and a battery. It can be used to distribute videos, music and photos to your mobile devices, both Android and iOS. Because it's wireless and runs on batteries, you can use the MiniStation Air while outdoors or travelling, not just at home. It works by way of an app (called MiniStation) and it turned out to be a solid little unit during our tests. Battery life isn't great though.

Some aspects of the interface could be better. For example, you don't get a battery status, and the Wi-Fi encryption settings are on a page that spills off the edge of the screen on a phone.Connecting to the hard drive

Before setting up the MiniStation Air, you should make sure your mobile device has Buffalo's MiniStation app installed. This app is required to see the drive's contents and settings. Once you have the app, the next step is to connect to the MiniStation Air's wireless network.The main interface of the MiniStation app. It has big, clear icons for navigation. Files and folders are listed under them. You can also see the settings menu. This means disconnecting from your standard wireless access point and connecting to the Wi-Fi network created by the Buffalo hard drive — the SSID is simply 'MiniStation' with numbers appended to it. The drive is secured by default, but the key is printed on the bottom. It's a long combination of letters and numbers that could be a pain to enter on some mobile devices — it can be changed through the app's settings once you're connected.

The way the MiniStation works is by forming a direct connection between your mobile devices and the hard drive itself. A consequence of this is that you can't use the Internet when you're connected to the drive, unless you also configure Internet access through the MiniStation app. This can be done through the app's Settings menu by clicking on Internet. This will show you a list of the access points in your area. We found that it didn't pick up our wireless network easily, due to it having a reportedly low strength (other devices picked it up stronger from the same distance) and there was no way to re-scan the area without exiting and re-entering the Internet menu.

When will supernatural season 5 be aired on itv2?

It will not be shown because ITV would rather spend their money on other programmes. It doesn't matter to them that SPN has loyal fans and that they season five could possibly be the last series.
Here is a petition that you could sign.
