5 out of 5 eggsCrazy fast

Pros: -I'm getting the full 285 MB/s sequential which is absolutely ridiculous, you have to see it to believe it
-Access times are insanely low
-100 gb is more than enough for a boot disk + essential programs

Cons: -SSD's will see a huge jump in capacity by the end of the year, so if you're looking for a bigger drive, wait if you can
-Price, but the technology is still in its infancy so expect prices to stay high for a while.

Other Thoughts: The 120 gb models are out and are at the same price as this drive, so go and pick up one of those instead.

5 out of 5 eggsVery fast, but I should've waited

Pros: Very noticeable increase in speed. For now I am putting it through its paces with various games I have in Steam. One in particular, the Witcher has a lot of transitions, the fast read/write definitely helps with loads/saves when compared to my old hard drive.

Among the other informal tests I've done was creating Steam backups and then copy/paste them to and from numerous folder locations. Obviously it was way faster than my old hard drive, the write speeds were fairly consistent, usually only dipping to 100mb/sec at the lowest.

Just for kicks I did the ATTO bechmark, and the numbers came up at or near what's posted in most reviews (xbit labs, bechmark reviews, tweaktown, etc.)

Cons: The over provisioning made what would've been a 120GB drive only 100GB. But I understand that Patriot didn't design the controller, Sandforce did, so I guess its not so much of a knock on Patriot as it is on Sandforce. If Patriot did release a newer version of this drive at 120GB, I would probably pick it up and switch out the one I have and put that one into my laptop.

Other Thoughts: I was somewhat of an early adopter so I paid nearly $370+ for this drive, but let it be said that patience is a virtue. Had I been more patient I would've saved a lot of money on this drive. Still pretty good for what you pay for though.

5 out of 5 eggsfaaaaaaassssssssst

Pros: sandforce controller, fast writes(260mb/s+), fast reads(270mb/s+), .1ms random reads.. large enough to get windows 7 and some games on and space to spare. boot times are ridiculously fast..

Cons: price... did make me a quiche?

Other Thoughts: this is a nice fast ssd that comes with a 3.5 bracket... supports trim, wear level management, and quite a few other goodies to keep it performing at top notch throughout it's life.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible through put speeds

Pros: The drive is in a nice small case and looks cool

Cons: Everything else. The speeds are no where near rated. I get 66MB/sec on an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 with 1003 bios. I tried different SATA cables and connecting it to different slots and a different motherboard of the same type. I also read that other people are having issues with the speeds on their systems not being up to what they are rated for at read 285MB/sec and write of 275MB/sec.

Other Thoughts: I think this drive is still in the development stage and needs more work from others thoughts/reviews I see.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

The speeds you are seeing are definitely not up to par with what the drive should be performing at. Please don't hesitate to contact to troubleshoot this issue and to see if there are any tips or tweaks we can suggest you try to increase performance.

5 out of 5 eggsvery fast write speeds

Pros: This SSD has very fast write speeds. The read speeds are on par with other quality SSDs.

Cons: The included mounting adapter bracket may make installation difficult in some cases. Doesn't quite live up to manufacturer's quoted speeds.
