In House Review - Patriot Pyro SE 240GB Solid State Drive

Postby Ian on Tue Dec 20, 2011 1:49 pm

CDRLabs kicks off the week with a review of Patriot's 240GB Pyro SE solid state drive. This new and improved version of the Pyro is powered by the same SandForce SF-2281 controller and shares many of the same features including a SATA 6Gb/s interface and native TRIM support. However, instead of asynchronous NAND, the Pyro SE is equipped with 25nm synchronous MLC NAND to deliver up to 550MB/s read and 520 MB/s write speeds as well as a maximum of 85,000 IOPS.

If you're looking to buy the 240GB Pyro SE, both Amazon and Newegg have it for about $410 after a $60 rebate.

Newegg - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820220625

Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005W8 ... B005W8NJZS

Newegg is sold out of the 120GB Pyro SE. If they get it back in stock, you can get one for $165 after a $40 rebate.

Amazon does have it in stock, but its $190 after rebate.

Assembled in USA. Wow! To bad we don't manufacture the whole thing here.
