    I been shopping for SSDs for sometime now. I try not to buy fresh technology cause you know there is always something wrong. So Patriot Memory Sandforce drive have been our for sometime now. They have Wildfire, Pryo and Pyro SE (their newest drive) So I went with the newest drive and what can I say. This thing is a beast!

    I have this drive in my daily use desktop comptuer with Asus Maximus IV Extreme Z, 2600k, 16GB 1600mhz, ati 6970 and this thing flies! I boot in 10seconds! I benchmarked my drive with ATTO and I get 515mb/s write and 557mb/s read!

    I plan on purchasing SSDs for all my systems and would recommend everyone to upgrade to SSDs as it is the best upgrade if you are looking for performance boost.

    This review is from: Patriot Memory PPSE240GS25SSDR (Direct) Pyro SE SATA 6.0 Gb-s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive (Personal Computers)

    Since the introduction of their highly acclaimed, high-performance Wildfire SSD drive, Patriot Memory has been busy filling out their selection of SATA III SSD drives. The original Pyro SSD was released as a value-oriented alternative to the Wildfire. The lower cost of the Pyro was achieved by using asynchronous NAND flash memory. Now, Patriot has released the Pyro SE, which uses the higher-performance, synchronous NAND flash. The Pyro SE settles in, right in between the Wildfire and the Pyro.

    PROS:

    – Fantastic read/write speeds
    – Greatly improves boot times
    – Stabilized SandForce firmware
    – 3-year warranty

    CONS:

    – No desktop adapter or other accessories included

    BUILD AND APPEARANCE
    The Pyro SE SSD packaging and appearance is consistent with the Pyro line. The drive comes in a slim cardboard box and is encased in a clear, easy to open plastic container. The drive itself looks identical to the Pyro except for the added “SE” label. The aluminum shell is kept together by four small screws and a couple of shiny warranty stickers warn that removing them will void the 3-year warranty.

    The Pyro SE, like the Pyro, does not come with a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch adapter or mounting screws. If you plan to use the Pyro SE with your desktop computer, either you’ll need a case that support SSD drives already, like the Corsair Graphite Series 600T, or you’ll need to get your own adapter. Laptop installations won’t need the adapter, but having an external USB adapter can making cloning your existing drive to the SSD drive much easier. I recommend picking one up from Newegg or Amazon for about $15, unless you plan on performing a clean OS install.

    PERFORMANCE
    ATTO
    I kicked off my benchmarks of the Pyro SE 240GB SSD with ATTO, which is primarily what manufacturers use in their advertised speeds. ATTO uses raw, compressible data and the results are a best-case scenario. ATTO showed 553MB/s read and 523MB/s write, which is right in line with the advertised speeds of 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write. It’s also not significantly different from the regular Pyro, or any other SandForce SSD, for that matter.

    CrystalDiskMark
    Where the performance differences really show themselves is when you test with random compressible data, using a benchmark tool like CrystalDiskMark or AS SSD. The results in CrystalDiskMark were 488MB/s read and 310MB/s write. Those performance numbers are significantly higher than those of the Pyro 120GB SSD I tested previously (208MB/s read and 146MB/s write). In fact, the Pyro SE 240GB SSD is the fastest SSD I’ve ever tested.

    BOOT TIMES
    I tested the Windows 7 boot time of the Pyro SE 240GB in a Dell Studio laptop. The Seagate Momentus 7200RPM mechanical drive that was already in the system, booted in a reasonable 47 seconds. The Pyro SE cut the boot time down to less than half that, at just 23 seconds!

    CONCLUSION
    I’ll state the obvious first: SSD drives have tremendous benefits. They outperform mechanical drives by a wide margin, are more resistant to shock, weigh less and consume less power. What else is rather obvious, is that SSDs cost substantially more than mechanical drives. However, costs continue to drop, while mechanical drives have actually reversed the trend recently due to the flooding in Thailand. The gap between HDDs and SSDs, in terms of price, is as small as it’s ever been. If you’re looking for a new drive right now, an SSD has got to look pretty appealing, at least as laptop replacement drives or as desktop boot/system drives.

    All that said, the Pyro SE is one of the best performance SSDs you can get at a reasonable price, relatively speaking. It costs just a little bit more than the Pyro, while offering enough of a savings from the Wildfire to be solid choice for enthusiasts. If you want to give your system a massive performance boost, the Patriot Pyro SE 240GB SSD drive will not disappoint.
