Pros
Not very many pros does eventually work with some user testing however it does not work as advertised
Cons
Tedious set up requiring user knowledge firmware updates can be a pain range is not very not good and transfer speeds drop  off the further you are way from the rice I mean even if you're more than 15 feet away
Summary
I have an email from Ben over at patriot " the maximum theoretical speed of the gauntlet node via Wi-Fi is 150 Mbps which is 18 MB/S however realistically 1.5 MB is what you should be seeing best regards Ben

To me I just feel like I've been duped into buying a product that they advertises being far superior than what it can actually do. I had initially planned to load files on the device and have it as a Wi-Fi access point to access files on my Mac like movies and such but I could not store since I have only a 256 GB hard drive. In order to transfer a movie that I would like it would take 15 minutes to do so. It would be much easier and faster for me to walk over to my desktop pop in a USB three point 0 Thumb Dr. copy the movie in 15 to 20 seconds plug it back into my Mac and away I go rather than waiting 15 minutes. Good idea however not quite there yet also the product was advertised on and ncix is being aluminum and it is not it is plastic

Experience: 3 Weeks
Pros
Streamed an HD movie fine.
Cons
No "select  All" on the iOS app (apparently there on the Android app)
4GB+ files, this needs to be connected to power to transfer.
Does not transfer the actual size of photos, even on the highest setting it rsizes photos to be 40% of the original size.
Summary
Great idea, with a way to go.

I waited after about two weeks after contacting Patriot to post this review. They could have responded with an empty promise and updated in 6 months but they have said nothing but the select  all option for photos is coming to iOS, which is useless if photos are resized as they are.

After 3 failed attempts of transferring large files I connected it to power and them it worked. Even though files successfully transferred they were corrupted so I'd verify the files.

Comment: Review of both DIY and drive version but this one is by far the better value of the two. Definitely some software quirks and the battery life could be better but does the job. Would be good plugged in on a road trip.

Comment: 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
