Patriot Torqx 2 PT232GS25SSDR 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Depends on your Hardware 04/24/2012

This review is from: Patriot Torqx 2 PT232GS25SSDR 2.5" 32GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price

Cons: *See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: This is a update of a prior review. I initially bought 2 of these drives and set them up in RAID 0 on a Intel D975XBX MB, using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology RAID Controller. In that set-up they were blazing fast and scored a 7.7 on WEI.
A set them up on a Gigabyte G880-GM MoBo using the onboard RAID, AMD FX4100 Quad-Core CPU, and 8MB's of DDR3 1600Mhz. They are still running well but the WEI scored them at 5.9?
I'm not sure why that is, but it seems like they don't take well to certain hardware RAID systems, or Motherboards. I havent gotten around to doing a speed test, but they still seems like they are running better than a mechanical drive, and I havent had any burps, freezes, or BSOD.
Say be wary of the system you choose to run these in, I also do not recommend running these with Windows XP!
Windows 7 has trim support!

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

Pros: Price, Nice Heat Sinks

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Running this memory in a Gigabyte GA-880GM AM3+ MB, BIOS recognized the memory as 1600Mhz, but the timings were at 11-11-11-28, so changed them in bios manually to 9-9-9-24 which is what they are supposed to be without a problem. Running smooth.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price, 4 Ports, USB

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The video inputs are slow to respond, It will not show video until computer is almost into OS. so if your looking for post info or trying to get into the bios you better run a direct video or know the bios entry key or you will miss it.
Sometimes you have to cycle through the inputs to get the unit to recognize a video feed, but after the computers are booted it works very well. No real issues.
