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

Patriot Pyro SE 240GB SSD - PCSTATS.com Patriot Pyro SE 240GB SSD
Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 9:03AM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Patriot has been in the memory game for a long time, and has been using NAND for USB flash drives for almost as long. It makes sense that they too would be building Solid State Drives for desktop and laptops. Patriot offers four product lines of SATA 6Gbps all based on the SandForce 2200 family controller: Wildfire, Pyro SE, Pyro and Mac XT. The Wildfire offers 120-480GB models while the other 3 product lines each offer a 60-240 GB option. The difference between them performance wise is very small, with the Wildfire being the exception (having lower read and write speeds than the other drives with the Pyro SE topping out the performance charts based on paper specs, by 5 MBps. On the test bench today will be the Patriot Pyro SE 240GB SATA 6Gbps Solid State Drive. With reads up to 550 MBps, writes at 520 MBps and up to 85K IOPS, the Pyro SE looks to be a crowd pleaser. First lets take a look at Patriot themselves.

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
