FlashPlus and FAFileMover 1.4.2

Sun Jul 1, 2001 - 10:19 PM EDT - By Scott Hanselman

The CF Wars are heating up. Everyone is watching. Everyone is wondering...what CF Adapter should I buy? Is the adapter I just bought obsolete already? These are tough calls to make. I'm just a lowly product reviewer. I'm an early adopter like a lot of you, but just as many of you want to make a wise and thoughtful purchase. When a reviewer really loves a product, how do they keep from sounding like a cheerleader? When a reviewer really hates a product, how do they keep from sounding like they are dissing the product? The best I can do is call it like I see it. I think that VisorCentral member dietrichbohn really hit the nail on the head when he said:

"Seems like the review would have benefited from a wider lens before focusing in on [one product]; better ones are on the way... I think that the CF shakeout won't happen for another few months."

This is probably true...but it's really true for most products. It didn't take long for $800 bare-bones DVD players to show up fully-featured at WallMart for $199. Soon they'll be at flea markets for $50. It sure didn't take long for Visor CF Card Adapters to turn from a hobbyist's toy to a viable Memory expansion for Visor enthusiasts!

The FlashPlus is the next step in the series of CompactFlash Adapters that utilize the FAFileMover Software from Kopsis Engineering. The FlashPlus is very similar to the original InnoPocket Adapter, but the FlashPlus is $10 more, weighing in at $49.99. So what do you get for your ten bucks? A lot, namely - upgradability. If you've ever had a hard-reset clear you Visor, the last thing you want to do is have to HotSync before you can restore your data! Since the FlashPlus is a true plug-and-play Springboard, all you have to do is pop it in and you're set. The FAFileMover software runs directly from the Flash memory area in the FlashPlus.
