Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Patriot Torqx 2 128GB SSD Review  - PCSTATS.com Patriot Torqx 2 128GB SSD Review

Every now and then it is refreshing to see a company that believes that rushing into the dog race of technological advance might not be as business smart as simply understanding customer needs. This is definitely the case with Patriot and their new Torqx 2 SSD that not only remains to be a SATA 2.0 drive, but also, is definitely in the price range to attract new SSD enthusiasts. In the rush to push out SATA 3, SSD manufacturers may have forgotten that 99% of computer owners are using SATA 2 systems and just might seek a SATA 2 SSD in the near future. The Patriot Torqx 2 SSD has just been released to consumer sales and is available in capacities of 32, 64, 128 and 256GB. Patriot has listed its performance as 270MB/s read and 230MB/s write and have upped their warranty to 3 years which is great to see in a SSD although, most likely it will never be needed. At the time of this report, there was a company rebate which brought pricing to a very reasonable $74.99 (32GB), $114.99 (64GB), $199.99 (128GB) and $489.99 (256GB).
