It doesn't require any extra software on your computer (macs and windows support SMB shares out of the box)

You can Map Network Drive on your computer and access your phone files from a drive letter

You can open files on your phone in any windows program directly... just like it was a local disk...
Thanks. I tried the Samba Filesharing app and did a benchmark test copying a folder of 336 MB. It took slightly longer than Directory Opus in combination with File Expert run in FTP mode.
