Check out these quotes from Patriot Wildfire reviews & previews
"Based on the SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor, the Patriot Wildfire solid state drive delivers native TRIM garbage collection and basic SMART support with impressive 558 MB/s read transfer speed and nearly 74,000 IOPS. More importantly, SandForce DuraClass technology adds their proprietary RAISE and DuraWrite features not available to other SSDs, and the end result is a product that could last up to five times longer with less wear on NAND flash modules. While the Patriot Wildfire has offered impressive performance rivaling the OCZ Vertex 3 series and occasionally trailing the Max IOPS Edition SSD, the asking price is just a bit higher than both. Price notwithstanding, there's a lot of great features in the Patriot Wildfire that make it a worthwhile buy for both notebook and desktop computer users."
"Overall, Patriot have got a great drive here, that offers good competition into the SandForce market and performs extremely well in all areas including synthetic and real-world usage, with the only downside being the slightly high price tag, but as they say, if you want the best, you do have to pay for it, so be prepared to get your wallet out with this one."
"Even though the Patriot Wildfire offers a better level of performance than both the Corsair drives, we can’t help feeling that the Force GT will be a better option for most users because it offers nearly the same level of performance for USD 45 less money. For some users, though, this price premium will be worth the small improvement in performance."
"In many ways, the Wildfire has moved the goal posts in the SSD market and we have already begun to see the effects ripple through the lineups of Patriot’s competition. Prices have been cut and new products rolled out in an effort to limit this drive’s impact upon all of the other cookie-cutter products out there. To us, Patriot did exactly what was needed: they pushed through an innovative NAND / controller combination at a very reasonable price point and did so while raising the sub-$300 performance bar by a few notches. We really couldn’t have asked for more than that."
"It is around £70 more expensive than other 120gb Sandforce 2281 powered drives, which makes the slight performance increase difficult to justify."
