Patriot Gear Box NAS Adapter
Article Publish Date:
For the past year or so there’s has been quite the increase in network attached storage devices in the market by most manufacturing companies. Ontop of that most high end modem/routers introduced in 2010 also feature USB ports allowing people to either add a storage device for use as a FTP server or a printer to use it as a Print server. The bad thing with dedicated NAS devices or servers is that they cost quite a lot while the new high end modem/routers may cost considerably less but they offer limited functionality compared to NAS devices. Patriot thought of this and decided to merge the best of all worlds in their latest and quite tiny Gear Box NAS adapter.

This commitment to R&D enables us to deliver the best quality memory modules powered by the latest innovative technology.
When we first saw the Gear Box NAS adapter and started taking pictures of it we honestly did not know what to expect not only because for us up until that day Patriot was just a memory/flash manufacturing company but also because lately we have been in the receiving end of several medium sized NAS units and so judging solely by its size we thought it would be nothing more than just an USB add-on for any modem/router out there. Of course although the general idea is not far away from what we originally thought in the end the Gear Box proved us all wrong.
