Awesome So Far
Pros: Smooth install. Win 7 64bit turned off defrag like I had read it was going to. I went ahead and turned off indexing, ran WEI and scored my expected 7.9. Oh and windows took a gran total of 10 min to install and get to desktop (gotta love that). I ran ATTO on it and scored read/writes of 109/142 at 4k and 555/515 overall. Very Nice :)
Cons: Price maybe? Maybe not lol. It did not come with a bracket, wish it had.
Overall Review: So far so good. Its a nice upgrade from my old yet serviceable (though noisey) 150gb WD Rapters. Will try and remember to update if anything changes.
Pros: Great price.
Cons: Had trouble with this right from the start. Running it at stock timings and voltage it would not reliably work with my MSI P67A-GD53. I got it to boot MAYBE three times out of countless attempts. Patriot says that it maynot work as advertised in P67 motherboards. It might have been that or it just may have been the un-luck of the draw. Anyway I replaced with another well known brand and everything was fine.
