Summary: Considering that the battery has to keep the drive spun up while serving video, it’s probably acceptable. Basically there’s a lot right with the Patriot Node, and a few things wrong. Given the Node’s ability to provide a never-ending supply of digital content for your mobile devices, and the speed at which you can load it on there, we think the good wins out.
Pros: Refreshingly fast write speeds; can write to device from your phone.
Cons: Needs security on by default; plastic construction.
Conclusion: We like the idea of portable wireless storage solutions. Designed specifically to bring extra capacity to mobile devices that lack expandable storage, they provide an answer to anyone who's bought, say, a 16GB iPhone and ran out of room for their music collection. But in theory, a wireless enclosure such as the Gauntlet Node needs to meet certain criteria if it's to excel at the task in hand.
Conclusion: As we mentioned earlier on, the best match for the Gauntlet Node is a buyer who already has a modest-or-better laptop hard drive on hand to drop into the case, given that the bare drive chassis costs around $100 by itself. If that's you, and you own a few iOS and Android devices, the Gauntlet Node could be a nice little addition to your gadget arsenal.
Pros: Unique DIY wireless drive streams media to Android and iOS tablets, smartphones, USB 3.0 interface, Battery-powered, Supports wireless uploads from your devices
Cons: File-playback support on iOS limited to iOS-native formats
Summary: Il Gauntlet Node di Patriot Memory riesce a ricreare egregiamente un ambiente di condivisione dati, casalingo e non, dando la possibilità agli utenti di accedere, anche a grandi distanze, ad immagini, musica, video e documenti.
Una menzione d'onore va agli ottimi materiali utilizzati che donano al box solidità e lo rendono piacevole al tatto.
