Excerpt: If Jerry Seinfield worked at Maximum PC reviewing overpriced gadgets, we’re pretty sure he’d be saying: “And what’s the deal with getting charged so much for so little RAM? You know, the 16GB version of the HTC Galaxy 5s costs $199 but the 32GB costs $299? And, what? No expansion slot for additional RAM?” Well, Jerry, consider the Patriot Gauntlet Node , a Wi-Fi media streamer-cum-hard drive. The Patriot’s Node doesn’t break new ground.
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.
Excerpt: The Gauntlet Node is an external USB 3.0 chassis that lets you build your own Wi-Fi-equipped hard drive that works with iOS and Android devices. It's a fine solution for supplemental tablet or phone storage if you already own a 2.5-inch drive that's gathering dust.
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.
