Patriot Valkyrie Networked Attached Storage Review

Patriot Valkyrie NAS

The Patriot Valkyrie NAS comes packaged in a sturdy silver box with a plastic handle on top. Features and useful information can be found all over the box with icons for each individual feature in two wide rows on the back.

 

Opening from the top, the Valkyrie NAS is nestled in between two blocks of Styrofoam and wrapped in plastic. The first thing I noted was the weight as the steel enclosure feels quite sturdy and solid and is emblazoned with “Valkyrie” and “NAS Storage” along the sides.

 

The front of the Patriot Valkyrie includes all the status lights for both the hard drives you will install internally and any attached USB devices. The back includes the power connection, USB, Gigabit LAN, reset button and an exhaust port for the fan.

 

The front panel swings down allowing access to both drive bays. Pushing the button on the left will release the lock which doubles as an easy way to slide the drawer out. There is a black plastic retaining block in place and the 4 screws used to hold it in place will be used to install the hard drive.
