PC to PC File Transfer For Dummies
It seems that the "For Dummies" brand is everywhere. So it came as no surprise when I came across this USB gadget at CES that is branded similarly. As one would suspect, it's a very simple matter to connect it to two computers and transfer files back and forth with ease. No software is required; the device contains software that runs on both computers shortly after it is plugged in.
Here's a picture of the display on my desktop computer showing my notebook's Pictures folder on the top and my desktop's My Pictures folder on the bottom.
I was in the process of transferring my pictures from CES from the notebook to the desktop, so I just dragged and dropped the folders I wanted from the top frame to the bottom and 10 seconds later, 51mb of pictures were copied.
By comparison, my notebook was also on a wireless network with my desktop, so I duplicated the transfer using Windows Explorer. The same folders took 45 seconds to transfer, and that over a 100mbs network.
