4 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: This drive was a great boot drive. I enjoyed fast read/write speeds along with great boot speed.

Cons: After less than 2 years it failed; however, Patriot's RMA department was great. I called, placed an RMA over the phone, and got a hassle-free replacement in less than a week.

Other Thoughts: Patriot stood by their word. The drive did fail, but they honored the warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast, quick Installation, Very Happy & Pleased!!

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: I purchased the 120GB Version. The Read/Write Numbers are extremely accurate!! For me personally, the only SSD I Own that's much more faster is the Samsung EVO 840, Which is a great SSD In its own right. But the Patriot Pyro Definitely holds its own!!! Extremely Happy with my purchase as my boot time alone is only approx 12-15 Seconds, with Windows 7 Pro! Very Happy with purchase, I can't say enough how pleased I'm with owning this SSD!!!

Cons: Absolutely NONE!!!

Other Thoughts: Great and very Fast SSD & Extremely easy to install!!

3 out of 5 eggsGood value but questionable longevity

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: Relatively fast and problem free for 3 years of moderate to heavy use. (Lots of reads, low to moderate writes)

Cons: Longevity. The drive died after 3 years and 3 months. Right after the 3 year warranty expired.

5 out of 5 eggsStill being great after 4 years of use

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: 1- Among the best time response for SSD of its category
2- Still doing 550 mb/s on LOW DENSITY files after 4 years in benchmark.
3- No sign of letting down, so it mean the controller doesn't have the problems that previous generation were having.

Cons: 1- Doesn't have an thermostats.
2- Slow on high density files, but still faster than other budget SSD of its category, so it doesn't remove an egg.

Other Thoughts: In overall i won't change my SSD even 4 years after the buy and don't expect to do it until many years to come!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, but cant flash firmware?

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: its fast, and it WORKS with my SATA-II board will switch it to my SATA-III laptop soon. its fast, or as fast as SATA-II will let it be.
it has not failed, and no noticeable slowdown

Cons: i have read many reviews about this drive failing, and if it does, i don't want to deal with patriot support, it wont flash firmware updates, and i hope this doesn't indicate any underlying problems with the drive. SO FAR its not failed me...

Other Thoughts: i don't want it to fail, got it for a birthday, but looking back, not the best idea ever. Support only emailed back saying the case was closed, no usefull information AT ALL

2 out of 5 eggsProducts with bad support are bad products

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: I'm not an SSD expert but while this drive worked it seemed to work well.

Cons: Drive turned flaky and entered complete failure mode in less that 1 year of use. Fortunately I only ran the OS on it.

Other Thoughts: The Ugly: Drive failures aren't something to lose stars for typically, but Patriot loses them on the basis of dirt poor customer support. They've had my drive for very nearly a month (Shipper confirmed delivery on 5/6; it's now 6/9) and despite multiple contact attempts I haven't heard anything about the RMA. The silence from Patriot's RMA department is deafening and tells me a lot about how they value their customers.

Good product is only the beginning of a retail business. Customer support and honoring warranties are just as important, particularly on technical devices. Will not be buying any more Patriot products.

1 out of 5 eggsThis is Junk.

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: No "pros" - even the rebate is a rip, as they will do anything to deny it.

Cons: All cons. Be prepared to have gigs of your precious data sucked-up and dumped into the Nether World of a faulty product.

Other Thoughts: I should have known not to trust this 'company', once they denied the $20 rebate on the basis of 3 hours - their Pacific vs my Eatern Time Zone purchase date. Really? Some still wants to kill all future business in order to "save" $20 over the clock? Okay.

Not Okay: the 120 Gig drive was eady to install, easy to use for a week, but then got slower, slower, slower, and then became invisible after one, two, three, four, five, etc re-boots. After 4 months, it failed to start EVER, killing much data.

AVOID this unperfected bit of experimentation.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR

Pros: No "pros", beyond a false sense of security when the first 2 weeks seem fast.

Cons: Should be a ZERO STAR rating. Buggy, ever-increasing sloth, data loss, and a final warningless death with all data dumped.

Other Thoughts: Starting with the denial and cheating of a $20 rebate over a matter of hours (Eastern vs Pacific Time. Really, Patriot? You would kill all fitire business because of this? Yes, you would.)

While installation of the drive appeared smooth, it was soon followed by an ever-increasing pattern: Boot, okay. Boot, problem, boot again. Boot, problem, boot again. Ang again. And again. And again again again again, AGAIN. Finally, it would neither boot or would my system even see that this worthless drive existed.

I would warn potential purchasers to use extreme caution, unless they don't care about losses of data.
