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

Patriot Pyro SE 120GB Solid State Drive Review - PCSTATS.com Patriot Pyro SE 120GB Solid State Drive Review
Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 3:40PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

I have to admit that at first I wasn`t really sure why Patriot would release the synchronous flash Pyro SE. At the start of 2011 Patriot announced and then delivered their 32nm Toshiba Toggle NAND drive for the high end, Wildfire. Then in an effort to claim some market share from the upper mainstream segment, Patriot released their Pyro SSD with IMFT asynchronous flash. Patriot`s two tier approach kept things nice and tidy at a time when other manufacturers were releasing three product segments, a drive right in the middle with synchronous IMFT flash. I can`t say I really like the idea of calling the synchronous flash version of Pyro the SE model. This product is quite a bit different in both performance and market segment when compared with the slower original. We`ve talked at length about the performance benefits of synchronous flash when compared to asynchronous flash while paired with the SandForce SF-2281 controller. The SE really deserves more distinction, but we have to work with what Patriot has come up with."
