Thoughts on Eye-Fi Pro X2?

The new Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB SD card is finally available today. How do you think it would work with the T2i? It's class 6, supports Ad Hoc transfers, and has "endless memory mode."

Do you think I could keep it in the camera and leave my laptop setup across the room during a shoot and just keep recording clips? Will it automatically transfer the clips to my computer and then free up the space on the card?

Finally, how does 802.11n transfer speed compare to USB 2.0?

Thanks!

Just from reading the information on the site it looks like it would work fine in the T2i. Now would I as a professional take the risk of wirelessly transferring 8 gigs of footage to a computer, and not have a backup? Probably not... But a very cool concept. Wireless N has the potential of being faster than USB 2.0. But nothing makes me feel better than a solid physical connection.

"Endless Memory mode is an option you can activate on your Eye-Fi Pro X2. Enable Endless Memory, and your Eye-Fi Pro X2 card will automatically free up space once your photos and videos have been safely delivered. Itís like having an endless memory card!"

I'm mostly curious how it'd work with large video clips instead of pictures. And in Ad Hoc mode.
