Hello once again, funkykit is bringing you another awesome SSD for our viewers. We have another drive courtesy of Patriot. Their fastest drive, the Pyro SE. Recently I reviewed the Pyro and found it to be an awesome SSD. The Pyro SE takes the performance of the Pyro and supercharges it.
While the 120gb drive may be large enough for your operating system and a couple of games, the 240gb is more aimed at people who want everything on an SSD. There is nothing quite like the near instant loading times for games!
In this review we will be comparing the Pyro SE to the very popular Crucial M4. This will surely be the battle of the heavyweights.
This drive features the SandForce SF-2281 controller paired to 240GB of 25nm NAND memory. What does that all mean? It means you are getting one freaking fast drive. If you are worried about reliability, don't be. You get a whopping 85,000 IOPS for the 240GB model. Not to mention that it has built in TRIM support which keeps the drive nice and fresh.
When you get down to it, the Drive is actually a 256GB drive. But since you are going to lose 16gb toward garbage collection Patriot choses to take that amount right off the top so to not decieve you when that 256GB suddenly shows up as 240GB out of the box.I think we should go take a look at the 240GB Patriot Pyro SE SSD.
