This enclosure worked well enough for me once I got over the following:

1. If the drive doesn't fit (enclosure can't be closed properly) when the rubber "wheels" are attached, it may be upside down ;-) despite what the drive connector cable seems to indicate. Just gently twist the cable to the proper orientation.

2. A newly-released HDD/SSD (e.g. OCZ Vertex 4 256GB) may not be recognized by the default system software, even though your computer sees it via USB. You will need to temporarily attach a separate, older SATA drive in order to update the firmware.

3. You need to use the iOS/Android app in order to see if the attached drive was recognized.

4. I still see buffering with some 720p and 1080p content over WiFi, which of course doesn't happen if the enclosure is directly connected via USB to the player. I only get around 2MB/s max streaming over WiFi -- I'm not sure if tweaking the WiFi config will help.

UPDATE 10/11/12: Am taking off 1 star because the AP Client Mode does not have the option to autoconnect to known Access Points, or even just remember passwords. Hopefully a future firmware update will address this.

UPDATE 12/26/12: There doesn't seem to be any way to charge it and use it as a WiFi drive at the same time.

UPDATE 12/28/12: You can charge and use it as a WiFi drive after all, as long as you use the wall charger or a high-amp USB port, not a standard computer port.

...then you probably already know what I have to say.

This is the most versatile, technolgically advanced option if you are looking for a WiFi accessible HDD or SSD.

There is one important thing to consider for those mulling this purchase over, and that is the cost is really only justifiable at it's current level IF you already have a spare 2.5" drive lying around to put into it, and like me, you are looking to the future for the bigger SSD options to drop in price.

The android app interface is fine, nothing earth-shattering, but simple and usable. I have no issues with it. I have shared many files with my friends already. They are amazed that they can simply download the guantlet connect app to their phone and get access to my files by simply connecting to it over WiFi. I have streamed video files from it without issue to my Nexus 7, which is the main purpose that I wanted to fill with this device.

Nice size, nice build quality minus some light leak issues but nothing that I would take a star away for, and overall the perfect fit for what I wanted.

You can store data from disk to your gadgets and opposite.
I would like to have better manual, If I had I wouldn't waste extra 30 minutes.
1. The disk inside this device should be formatted and readable via usb. It does not directly relate to this device, so I do not describe the procedure.
2. Turn on the device (usb disconnected); on the box you will see wifi blue light. You should see in your "Wireless network connections" on your PC/laptop xp-windos 7 (what I have) GaunletNode active network connection.
3. So Connect to. No password.
4. on web-browser type [...] and you will see the setting page.
5. YOu will see Status (who is connected), Setup (ignore), Network (ignore, but remember usernam/password - admin/admin do not change it - it means nothing; Security:
Security: chose WEPAUTO, write down in some editor (notepad or word) any 13 digits and copy-past it into "wep key 1". Use ASCII. Rest ignore. Save your editor and '"Apply" your Security Setting.
6. Open your Windows Explorer (sorry do not use Mac) type in browser \\10.10.10.254 - pay attention to the slashes direction
7. You know user/password: admin/admin. YOu will see the disk in your Network in your Windows browser.
8. From GoglePlay and Itunes search for app Gauntlet and install.
9. From your iPhone/Android connect to GaunletNode WIFI - 13 digit password you know.
10. On your gadget you see 2 tubs: WIFI and local. On WIFI you will see your external disk, on local you will see nothing until you store there some data from your external disk.

Before I move on to another computer, I always remove all of the useful parts of my old one. Instead of trying to find a buyer on Craigslist or Ebay for an old hard-drive, I found that this enclosure easily turned my extra drive into a wireless server that streams music and videos to all of my devices at the same time. I especially like how it allows me to connect to the internet through it. I am not just relegated to connecting to an extra hard-drive. Buy one if you have something to put in it.

The first unit I received is defective. I requested a replacement and received a very obviously used unit. The plastic bags have been ripped open, nothing is zip tied as it should be if it were new, and there are three of the four rubber feet stuck to the bottom of the unit. I'm returning that one and I'm not sure if I will request a replacement or not. Quality control is abysmal. I would not buy this product from this page if I were you. Looks like it's coming directly from Amazon. Shame on you Amazon. Get your act together.

**Edited two days later** So the THIRD unit would also not transmit its SSID. I was advised by Patriot to return the unit. I'm guessing that these are all refurbished units being sold as new. I cannot explain it otherwise, unless it is incompatible with the hard drive I installed, which worked just fine when connected to a computer.
