Inside of the box we find a USB 3.0 cable, a USB power adapter, instruction manual, software, and the enclosure itself. The Gauntlet features a very nice black aluminum finish. It has a bit of a heft to it, but it really feels solid in the hand. I suspect it could take quite a beating and still protect the drive inside - well, more so with a solid state drive than a traditional spinning disk. The top of the enclosure displays the Gauntlet logo with the Patriot logo on the front.
The back features an activity light, power receptacle, USB 3.0 slot and a backup button. Removing the two screws you pull out the SATA adapter card. Installation was easy by just sliding on the test drive and sliding everything back in the case. The Gauntlet supports up to 500gb drives, which was a perfect fit for the 320gb 2.5” drive I have on hand.
