Not gonna lie, I'm surprised no one else has had any issues. I bought an Eye-Fi a few years ago. Worked for a while (couple months). Then an error occurred while writing to the card one day. Lost everything. Spoke with Eye-Fi customer support, online and on the phone. Replaced my card. Clearly lost all my photos. Problem solved? Not even close. Literally the same thing happened 3 times. On the 3rd card I kept backing it up on a laptop I started carrying, because of my previous experiences, every so often so it became useless. I was done with them after that. The idea is great, the execution needs a lot of work.

Also, last I checked, there's no ad-hoc network support, so if you're planning to have photos sent straight to your laptop in the field, you'd better hope you're running Win7 and have that "virtual wifi miniport" softAP feature figured out, or just carry a wrt54G and battery in your backpack. gift.
The advantage of the x2 pro is ad hoc support. I have mine set up to upload directly to my pc without going online.
The card readership used to configure access points with the card. You must add the access point before the card can use it. Public hot spots are not supported until they are configured. There is a service offered for some to be pre configured but not all.
