Product Review – RAVPower Filehub Plus
A little bit about you, your work and main genre of photography:
My name is Miguel Arends; previously I worked as a freelance photographer and videographer for about 10 years. I am now a gear rental coordinator in the digital department of SunshineCo.
The digital department is broad in a sense of needing to stay updated on all new and old tech. The technology I work with starts from DSLR to professional film cameras. I work with different production suites ranging from Lightroom to Chronosync, and at times grip equipment with some lighting.
The genres I predominantly work in are; fight photography, motorsport, events, and media. Recently, I have gotten into TV production.
What interested you about the Filehub system initially?
With always working with data storage, power banks, and apps, I am always looking to be ahead of the game and supply my clients with new information or gear. Being a wireless router, media sharing component, and power bank really ticked all the boxes for me. Being small and compact really helps. SD port, USB port, and Ethernet port made it even better.
Where/How did you first hear about it?
Our sales department was assisting a gentleman who raved about how he was able to; play his music from his external (drive) stored in his car when connected to the hub, and could watch his movies seeing that he was on the road for 10 hours out of the day. He could also play the audio through his car sound system.
How has your experience been using the Filehub and what are its most impressive features?
With always working with iPhones or iPads, I tested it on a road trip with the family. It was able to share music and video files to 2 iPhones and 1 iPad with no interference.
