Patriot Pyro SE 240GB SATA 3
We’ve seen SandForce-based solid state drives become very popular over the last couple of years, as prices have continued to drop and consumers are taking notice of the impressive overall system boost that SSDs can offer. Today we will be taking a close look at a mid-range drive from Patriot, the Pyro SE 240GB SATA 3. This drive falls in-between Patriot’s top drive, the Wildfire (with toggle NAND), and their original Pyro, which features more cost effective asynchronous NAND internals.
The Patriot Pyro SE SSD is available in 60, 120 and 240GB capacities. Specifications list the 240GB as having 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write with 85,000 IOPS at 4k random write aligned disk access. The Patriot Pyro SE is TRIM-compatible, as well as backward compatible to SATA 2. It also comes with a respectable 3 year warranty, so it looks very competitive on paper.
Let’s jump in and see how the Patriot Pyro SE performs.
