4 thumbs up

For our next set of tests, we used SiSoft SANDRA, the the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. Here, we used the Physical Disk test suite and provided the results from our comparison SSDs. The benchmarks were run without formatting and read and write performance metrics are detailed below. We have also included SANDRA's detailed graph so you are able to see how the drive performs over time along with the average rated result.

The Patriot Inferno performed just like the OCZ Vertex and Corsair Force series solid state drives in the SiSoft SANDRA Read test. The Inferno, however, significantly outpaced the Zephyr.

The same holds true in SiSoft SANDRA's write benchmark, where the Patriot Inferno performs just like the other SandForce based OCZ and Corsair drives.

If you’re familiar with other enthusiast-class SandForce based offerings, many of the features and specifications should come as no surprise.

I have an OCZ Agility-II with the Sandforce controller and it's blazing fast.

All of these drives seem to perform about the same, and that's FAST!!

My desktops WEI score was 6.0 because the lowest part was the 6.0 of the HDD storage device.All other parts were in the 7.3~ 7.6 range.

I replaced the HDD with an OCZ 100gb Vertex 2 I purchased in June before the 120gb extended version came out.

My WEI score shot up to 7.3 due to the CPU and Vertex 2 being 7.3.

These drives really shine in the 4K and 4K QD32 read and writes.

I recently moved it to a netbook for evaluation but the netbook is such a PITA to open up that I decided just to leave it in there.

I feel these drives will soon be replaced by new SATA 3.0(6 gb/s)drives or more advanced technology.

There is now a $30 MIR on this drive at NewEgg, making it one of the more affordable 120GB SandForce based SSDs available.  If you're in the market for new SSD, check this baby out...

The more competitive players the better my prices, and Patriot seems to really be competing.
