not such a great deal. check out google's "buy more space" option. thats an 4gig, AND you get more gmail space.

$39.99!! Are you friggin kidding me? I just bought 3 SD card readers for $.01 each, and 2 gb SD cards are available under $5. Whole deal isn't worth the cost of shipping.... sorry, Woot, you screwed the pooch on this one.....

@wesdapilot: 3 SD card readers for $0.01 each? Including shipping? Online? If so, link please.

@wesdapilot: i'm not sure you quite understand what this is. it's not just an SD card and reader.
although I still think the price is a little high. if it were $30, i'd be in for 1.
also, it comes with a year of waypoint hotspot service, which is pretty sweet. you'd definitely have upgraded by the time that ran out.

@wesdapilot: You clearly don't understand what this product is -- the SD card has built-in wireless to transmit images via wireless hotspots (the USB reader is for those occasions when you're out of range).

Send your photos to your home network without bothering to plug in. I bought two for x-mas and they are great.

Too bad you can get a better card for just $10 more, and also some google extra storage.

Google and Eye-Fi have a great promotion going where you can get the 4gig Eye-Fi w/ added services (geotagging and picasa uploading) for $50 shipped.

That's only $6 more than this deal and you also get the extra 200GB in your Google account for the year, which is now a great option with the new Google Docs upload anything feature making "G-Drive" a reality.

More info here: picasa.google.com/eyefi.html

Nota Bene: These cards, while having some great features, are also pretty slow in their class. Some people with high end, finicky dSLR cameras may want to do some research first. Works fine w/ my Nikon D90 though.

@chiefmojorison: the wifi is in the card itself. As long as your camera is on, it will send pictures to either your PC or an online photo service or both.

I had one but returned it. It depends on eye-fi's servers being up even if you just want to send photos to a computer on your LAN. The day I bought it, I couldn't use it at all because the eye-fi servers were down. it also does not support Ad-Hoc wifi networks.

I have one and bought one for my tech-challenged mom. They work great and I've yet to see a noticeable drain on my camera's battery from transferring photos. It also keep my photo folder very organized (by date).

not the worst of deals, seen it for cheaper at frys but ive borrowed a friends before and id say its ok but the hotspots werent very well spread here in seattle so it fared a little pointless.

@wesdapilot: Except this is for a devise that is wi-fi enabled so that you can send your data wirelessly

Google deal is much better, $5 more for double the capacity, and it's NEW (not a refurb).

@pagefright: Thats a sweet deal, thanks for the post.

This is the model I have. 2 GB is plenty, when the images are being "automagically" uploaded (at your set-up wifi access points; works with the MyFi devices very well to upload from anywhere)... when I'm not on my 21 megapixel DSLR. It only works with jpegs (newer models can do videos, better models can do raw). This one will include 1 year of Wayport hot spot access, as well as the "geotagging" feature. I've used the geotagging, it works well. I paid three times this for mine (when it was new), so I'd have a hard time calling this a bad deal, though I'd also have a hard time calling it an "OMG, must buy 3" deal.

These are great! Have two. Bought one for my mother who is not very good on the computer. After I set it up, she can take pictures and share them without every having to call me to ask me for the 50th time how to download pictures to her computer. I have it set up to go to Google Pictures (picasa). So, we can just look online to see photos.

The google deal sounds good, but it is SDHC card. Fine for me, but check your camera. Also, it is $50 dollar a year. Not a one time payment of $50.

I have this model card. I have had mine since xmas 2008. I use it in my Ricoh GX-100. No noticeable battery drain, geo-tagging works really well, uploads all my photos to Flickr for me, I have it set to private, so when I get home, I can sort and decide which can be public. My husband paid $129.00 for it a year ago, so 39.99 is a really good deal.
The google deal might be better if you already use Picasa.

To note: the Google Eye-Fi promotion includes a SDHC WiFi card. Not for use with older cameras. If your camera doesn't support HC, then the woot deal is more appropriate for your equipment.

@bdunner: Please read a bit more and get back to us.

vote-for1vote-against

It's not a bad deal. And if you've got older folks, or family, this is a NICE feature for them. I love the technology, and it is something you can set up for them on their wireless network.

Not hard to use, and it can make their life a little easier!

@pagefright: Thanks for the tip. This looks like a great deal with google/picasa 200GB storage. Make sure to check if your camera is compatible or has "extra features" that work with this card on the eye-fi site: http://www.eye.fi/how-it-works/camera-compatibility?postTabs=0

@rasputen: You are right that the 4GB Eye-Fi card that comes with the Google promotion is not an "Explorer" card, but it does include Geo-tagging and auto uploading to Picasa which makes it very similar to the Explorer card.

I got the card from the Google promo and, while not mentioned, it also uploads videos. I have a Nikon D90 that records 720p videos which the Eye-Fi card not only uploaded to my computer, but also to Picasa. A pleasant surprise when it wasn't expected.

The Google promotion card is a much better choice for those who can afford to put down the extra $5.

vote-for1vote-against

I don't see a comparison to the Google Deal. Yes, you get a 4 gb Eye-Fi from Google, but that's for an Eye-Fi Home. This is an Eye-Fi Explore. You get more options with the Explore like geotagging.

vote-for1vote-against

@riotryan: Read the Google promotion, if not my posts. Even though the Google promotion is an Eye-Fi Home, it still comes with GeoTagging, Auto-upload to Picasa, and Video Uploading. The only difference then becomes the 1 year included Hotspot Access option, which if someone really needs can purchase separate.
