Patriot Torqx 2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast when runs

Cons: Like a fool I dropped my guard and purchased an item with a rebate. The rebates is a joke. Kiss your money goodbye unless you like spending more time chasing after the mess they create purpose than it is worth.

Even worse is now the drive is acting up and without the bar code on the box New Egg will not accept the returned item. So I am forced to return it to patriout. Given the other reviews regarding their customer service I might as well take the loss and toss the drive.

Other Thoughts: Take a chance if you like. Only purchase with the idea that you are not going to submit the rebate. First they will not fulfill the rebate, and second it will negate you from being able to return the drive.

PS The email address and the phone number that I a sure Patriot will post in this review like they always do is useless. Emailing the address returns no response. Calling sends me to someone who cannot speak English and is not helpful at all.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice board for the money. One of the higher marks for PassMark for the Celeron G540 cpu. With a Patriot SSD I am booting Win7 in 10 seconds. BIOS is terrible old on the one shipped. New BIOS update brings a ton of new features including FastBoot.

Cons: No serial header shipped with board.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great drive for the price and speed. No problems here. Nice and zippy. Fresh Win7 install boots in 10 seconds on a mini-itx with a Celeron G530

Cons: Pesky rebate.
