Patriot Inferno 120GB SandForce-Based SSDWe've got a review of a Patriot solid state drive on tap for you today. Patriot has employed SSD controllers from a number of manufactures including JMicron and Indilinx in a few of their product lines, but in the newest Inferno series of SSDs, Patriot went with SandForce’s SF-1200 series controller. The specifications for the Patriot Inferno 120GB drive we’ll be testing here are listed on the first page of the article. If you’re familiar with other enthusiast-class SandForce based offerings, many of the features and specifications should come as no surprise. Check them out and then read-on for the full scoop...

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...
