We have so many devices that we access data from these days. It is not just our computer anymore. Many people are using their smartphone or tablet as their only device for computing. While these devices can do what many people want them do they are limited at how much storage space they actually have. Wireless storage is nothing new, network attached storage devices have been out for quite a long time, but they also lack one thing…portability. This is where Patriot’s Gauntlet Node Wireless Enclosure comes in. This enclosure supports 2.5-inch hard drives, is small enough to take with you, has its own power source and allows you to stream content to up to 8 different devices wirelessly. Read on and to see if this is the device you need at add to your mobile arsenal.

The Gauntlet Node comes in a box that is not much larger than the device itself. Our Gauntlet came with a 320GB drive installed. No word on if Patriot will be selling the Gauntlet with installed hard drives as they are only currently selling just the enclosure. On the front of the box there is a photo of the unit and a list of some of the main features. On the side of the box there is a list of all the specifications.
Getting everything out of the box you have the Gauntlet box, USB power brick, USB power cable, USB 3.0 cable and product guide.
