I have a transformer pad infinity and a desktop PC. I currently use a usb to transfer stuff, but want an easier way if possible. is NFC feasible or am I mistaken?

I have no clue if NFC works with your tablet and PC, but if you don't want to transfer files using a USB you could try using dropbox app. I use it a decent amount with my tablet to get files from my computer.

is it possible to use it in such a way where I can use some form of LAN connection? I know it wouldn't work without an internet connection, but I value my privacy. It's not that I'm embarrased about the files as there's no reason to be; like 99% of all files(mostly .DOCX files or something similar) will be related to be writing in some way. I just don't want people to steal my s***.

EDIT #2: from what I've read it sounds like an awesome app. It kinda sounds like NFC on drugs. it seems even more useful because I can most likely use it with my phone. the only problem I foresee would be privacy.

Airdroid is an excellent app if you don't want to keep plugging the device in. Typically how I put sound files and such on my phone.

I'm using it and, quite frankly, it seems bloody f***ing awesome. for free.

edit: I can't seem to open files. I can download them to my PC, but I can't upload them on to my devices. when I try using them with the [open with X program], it won't let me edit them.

ES File Explorer can access SMB shares and does not require root access. I like Airdroid because you can copy files to and from your device without needing to have it right next to you. ES File Explorer it good if you want to do it from the device itself.
