PATRIOT VALKYRIE 2-BAY NAS INTRODUCTION
It's probably safe to say that many Tweaknews readers are already familiar with Patriot memory. They've been around for quite some time and provide memory and storage devices for budget users all the way up to the high performance products demanded by gamers. I have used their memory sticks in both gaming and budget rigs in the past, and I've never been disappointed. Today however, I'm going to take a new Patriot offering for a spin - a dual bay NAS called the Valkyrie. It has many of the same features as competing NAS units including RAID 0/1/JBOD, UPNP media server, FTP, iTunes, and print server functions, one touch backup, and more. The kicker is, the price is extremely competitive and in this current economic climate, saving a few bucks is always welcome. Let's see how the Valkyrie stacks up.
