Boost your system performance with the Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs and maximize your computing experience. The Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs breathes new life into your system by supercharging all your computing tasks - including mundane day-to-day productivity and web browsing tasks as well as PC gaming - for virtually instant system response with each mouse click.
A cutting-edge new SSD controller architecture enables the Patriot Torqx 2 to achieve read speeds up to 270MB/s and completely take advantage of the SATA 3.0 Gb/s interface. Write speeds up to 230MB/s ensure quick software installations and creation of large files with the Patriot Torqx 2 for an unmatched computing experience.
Cost-effective Performance The Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs are designed and built for cost-effective performance. By leveraging a cutting-edge new SSD controller with 128MB DRAM cache and high-quality 3x-nm NAND flash, the Torqx 2 achieves up to 270MB/s of sequential read speeds and up to 230MB/s of sequential write speeds for a noticeable performance boost with daily computing tasks. For desktops and notebooks lack of SATA 6.0 Gb/s, the Torqx 2 delivers the perfect balance of price and performance. (Based on internal ATTO Disk Benchmark testing.)
A Superior PC Experience In addition to enhanced performance, a Torqx 2 SSD upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability.
Trim Support Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

This review is from: Patriot Torqx 2 2.5" 256GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PT2256GS25SSDR
Pros: Very fast as long as it works, which may not be very long.
Cons: Don't waste your money, they don't last long. The first one I got worked great for 6 weeks then totally died. I got it replaced under warranty and the second one lasted just 1 1/2 days then got so slow it wouldn't boot anymore. Switched back to my old 1Tb WD drive and it runs great!
Other Thoughts: The AS SSD performance test gave results of just 16,18 and 44 instead of what you expect. I used SSDLife to check the first drive which said it had a life expectency of about 7 yrs but it says it can't give any information on this drive. That seems odd.
Dear Valued Customer,
