Wireless devices are everywhere nowadays, from consoles and PCs to phone and tablets, even TVs and DSLR cameras connect wirelessly view or share content. Home storage however tends to be more wired. That could be a NAS or home server or an external hard drive. Looking to find a space somewhere in between, the best of both worlds, is Patriot Memory with their Gauntlet Node.
The Gauntlet Node is a drive enclosure designed for 2.5inch traditional and solid state drives using the SATA interface. Not only does the Node turn our drive into a USB 3.0 device, it also allows it to be accessed wirelessly from our smartphone/Tablet or PC.
Packaging and Bundle
Patriot Memory package the Gauntlet Node in a box which shows a nice clear image of the product. There are key features listed along with it and worth noting is we are informed that apps are available from the iOS and Android marketplaces (Kindle Fire support also available).
Inside the box we get a selection of documentation, mains plug, power/charging cable, screws/covers and a USB 3.0 cable.
Earlier this year Toshiba announced their new generation of SSDs, the HG6. It might not have the snappiest name but if it performs as well against the competition as their previous drives we should be in for an impressive set of figures.
It has been over a year since the 840 Pro hit the market and competitor drives have continued to evolve since then so now it’s time for Samsung to do the same. Launching today is their new 850 Pro SSD featuring many of the aspects which made the 840 Series so attractive, mixed with some evolutions in the tech used. We will be putting it up against some of the best drives the competition can offer to see how this new model performs.
