This review is from: Patriot Torqx 2.5" 128GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PFZ128GS25SSDR
Pros: - Fast
Cons: - Unreliable
Other Thoughts: I've got my PFZ128GS25SSDR in August 2009. In six months of ownership, it corrupted my file system 3 times and caused numerous crashes. Another similar OS installation on the same machine never had any problems. I got tired of the multiple problems caused by the drive and sent it back to Patriot. They replaced it within 2 weeks or so.
The second drive appeared to be better, but after a few months it started causing random crashes again, and now it managed to render my Windows installation almost unusable.
I'm extremely frustrated with this drive and would not recommend it to anyone. I'm seriously considering throwing this on trash can and be done with it.
I've bought a Corsair SSD for a Netbook that I also own and didn't have any problems with it. I do not know what's the difference between these two drives, but it's clear from the statistics that Patriot is doing something terribly wrong here.
