Patriot's Gauntlet Node will fit any 2.5" drive of 2TB or less in its 3.39" x 5.47" x 0.96" shell and allow you to connect to it wireless via an 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connection.  This device is for more than just your normal laptop, as it has support for iOS and Android devices as well.  That could give your phone or tablet a lot more storage than it originally shipped with.  For those of you who prefer an SSD, the USB 3.0 connection will give you good speed but it will be limited by USB 3.0's bandwidth.  [H]ard|OCP really liked this device, even if they did have to wrestle with it a bit when initially setting it up.

"The Gauntlet Node from Patriot is designed to provide extra storage to mobile users. The ability for any 2.5" HDD or SSD to operate wirelessly as a hot-spot for up to 8 users and to provide a shared data pool is compelling. It does feature support for Android and iOS devices natively. We test the Gauntlet Node to see if it delivers."

Interesting alternative to the WiDrive or the Wireless Satellite.

I wonder if it will charge while it is powered on and doing it's duties? I've seen other drives that can't charge while being used.
