Forget the wireless on Android

colonthreec, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: This little device was a real eye opener to how poor an OS Android really is. On paper this thing should work flawlessly, but you MUST keep its app up and you cannot do ANYTHING on your mobile device while it is transferring, otherwise Android will time it out and put the app in cache, breaking your wireless transfer. If you were going to use it for movies like me Forget it. It's good as a mobile HD and nothing more and I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives.

Don't Count on Tech Support

Wayne W Shearer, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased the Patriot Gauntlet 320GB drive from Amazon when they had a special just before Christmas for $89.00. Not a bad deal. It generally works as advertised, one you figure out how to get it installed. I used the included USB connector to connect to my PC so I could download the latest drivers and update the unit. That worked fine. But they have some funky problems getting connected to my PC's. I have a Windows 7 and two Windows 8.1 laptops.

  • Summary: the app is great, connecting to it was easy, and i really like how the hard drive is replaceable. oh yeah, it seems durable enough because i did drop it once already without any issues.

Good product, wireless is a bit inconsistent

Gregg Paterson, Amazon
17 July 2013
  • Summary: Ordered this product and it works very well. My only issue is that sometimes it can be a bit difficult to connect to the device as it doesn't seem to broadcast itself all the time consistently. Turning it on and off once or twice usually solves the problem. Other than that it works great with my iPad and data transfer rates are very good.

pretty cool but haven't really had a chance to use it yet

M. Rylaarsdam, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: It took awhile to get it working, and the info wasn't that helpful. Here's what finally worked for me... The problem is that I use a mac, and I had formatted the drive for mac use, but then I couldn't connect it. I knew I needed to update the firmware, but using the website access it couldn't see the firmware update. What I finally figured out is that I needed to reformat it back to NTFS, then load the firmware update to it.

nice hybrid

Tall enough, Amazon

  • Summary: First to the comments re iPods, my guess is they don't have enough processor power to work with the enclosure. The enclosure works great with iPhones. You can also expect some large video files to not play smoothly on your device (eg. galaxy 2) if the processor on your device can't handle it. It's not just Wi-Fi that's the problem, although 1080p streams are just too complex to stream over WiFi generally. Now, onto the device.
