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

Patriot Wildfire 120GB - PCSTATS.com Patriot Wildfire 120GB
Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:03PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"Patriot has come to market with a drive that delivers excellent performance characteristics with its combination of Sandforce 2281 controller and 32nm MLC NAND in place of the 25nm delivered on the other 22XX-controlled comparison drives. In much of the testing, the lower-capacity Wildfire delivered performance on par with the 240GB Vertex 3 from OCZ. On paper, the specifications include 555Mb/s read speeds and writes of 520MB/s, along with 4k aligned random write performance of 85,000 IOPs — marks the Wildfire easily delivered. This makes the drive, at times, more than twice as fast as many previous-generation drives controlled by Sandforce 1222 and INDILINX Barefoot controllers — numbers it took previous-generation drives in RAID to achieve."
