Quoted from Patriot Gauntlet 320 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Patriot Gauntlet 320 reviews & previews
"The Patriot Gauntlet 320 stems from the Gauntlet Node, a concept you will actually need to use to appreciate its many benefits. Wireless storage. Portable media streaming. Now equipped with a 320GB HDD out of the box, the average Joe will definitely appreciate the fact that it will simply work, without worrying about the need to buy their own hard drive. I am a big fan of the Patriot Gauntlet 320's simple and slick exterior, user interface that is intuitive and user friendly, as well as its generally very good battery life. Being able to access it via Wi-Fi or USB 3.0 is quite a convenience too -- and we haven't even got to its ability to stream to popular portable devices powered by Android or iOS (Heck, even the Kindle Fire). As far as areas of improvement are concerned, I would like to see some change in both hardware and software. Firstly, the power button may be too easily pressed. Making its activation force higher will alleviate this problem. Secondly, its electrical design. Requiring the presence of a battery to operate even with external power on is just poor implementation. If your battery is dead, you might as well toss out your entire Gauntlet. Thirdly, its Wi-Fi performance is too slow. Make it faster. (However, it might be a challenge to retain the same battery life with more wireless and processing power). As far as software is concerned, a page that shows its charge status and remaining percentage would be nice. It should be able to save more than one pass-through wireless network profile. With a few GUI fixes and refinements in a couple of other places, it would be perfect. All in all, the Patriot Gauntlet 320 is a slick little gadget that redefines what it means to take your media with you, plus all your files as a battery powered portable storage device. For about $150 at press time, it will definitely not be an inconvenience to the wallet, either."
"Overall I'm impressed with Patriot's Gauntlet 320 wireless HDD, and recommend it to others who want the versatility of a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 or wireless connection to their data from almost any device via Gauntlet Connect application."
"Bottom line, if you’re either running out of space on your mobile device or you want an easier way to share content between your devices, no matter what it is, then the Gauntlet has got you covered."
"Potential uses cases for the Gauntlet include any time you need a shared data source like working on group projects for school or the office, on-the-go storage for devices like Ultrabooks with smaller hard drives and users that have large media collections they want to use with smart phones and tablets."
"Overall conclusion: If you are in the market for an external-take it wherever you go hard-drive this will satisfy most of the usual market crowd, but if you are looking for performance, this will not satisfy you."
