Gauntlet Node supports streaming to five devices simultaneously

Patriot Memory has announced the launch of a new portable storage enclosure called the Gauntlet Node. The enclosure is a portable wireless device that has an internal lithium-polymer battery. The enclosure supports any 2.5-inch, 9.5 mm thick hard drive or SSD.
 
Once the SSD hard drive is installed into the portable wireless enclosure, the Gauntlet Node allows the drive to be accessed wirelessly from tablets, smartphones, and laptops. Patriot says that the Gauntlet Node can connect to up eight devices and can wirelessly share and stream movies, music, and documents to five different devices at the same time.
 
An app is available for Android and iOS devices allowing the devices to access content stored on the drive.
 
The enclosure measures 3.39-inches by 5.47-inches by .96-inches and weighs 182.5 g. It supports 802.11 b/g/n and uses SATA II internal connectivity for the drive. It supports hard drives with a maximum capacity of 2 TB, and the internal battery promises 5.5 hours of continuous streaming per charge.
 
The enclosure is available online right now for $100.

This device sounds promising, especially now that phone carriers are slowly doing away with unlimited data. I've been with my phone carrier for multiple years now with on a family share plan, with multiple lines. We're due for upgrades, but in order to get the discounted rate, we need to be converted to a data share plan.

My family does a lot of traveling, and use our phones plenty for streaming youtube and netflix. We did the math, and this new plan would not be feasible at all for our purposes... this sounds like it can be a great media streaming device for trips without the heavy data use or possible overages.
