Patriot Pyro SE 240GB Solid State Drive Review @ APH - Patriot Pyro SE 240GB Solid State Drive Review @ APH
Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 4:36PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

With an outside temperature of about -30 degrees Celsius at the time of writing this review (That`s -22 degrees Fahrenheit for those oddballs who still use such a weird unit of measurement, but we will leave that discussion for another day), sometimes, I kind of wonder where Al Gore is when you need him. Okay, I guess we do know where he is. So meanwhile Al Gore is happily tapping away in his Nashville, Tennessee mansion at above freezing temperatures, us here in Calgary could really use some warmth. A bonfire or something would be nice, as long as it is not inside my igloo house. Speaking of bonfires, a few months ago, we have covered the Patriot Pyro 120GB solid state drive. The Pyro 120GB is one sleek looking drive with the performance to boot -- a quick hop over to a popular online retailer`s website shows us it is finally in the same price range as the OCZ Agility 3 120GB; its main competitor. But there seems to be something missing in Patriot`s SSD lineup. If the Wildfire stacks up against the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS and the Pyro against the Agility 3, what does Patriot have that competes with the vanilla Vertex 3? Without the need to come up with a completely new name, the Pyro SE 240GB we have here at APH Networks this morning is the company`s answer to OCZ`s Vertex 3. Enough said, let`s get straight to the juicy details."

Slow computer got you down? Maybe a hardware upgrade should be in your cards, if so this guide to the Fundamentals of Upgrading a PC is an invaluable read. PCSTATS Tips
