Reviews Word on the street for the Patriot Inferno


8.8
Like all other Sandforce drives, the Inferno uses a SATA II (3 Gb/s) interface which is able to handle speeds of up to 300 MB/s..

9.0
As you'd hope, the Inferno has full support for the all-important Windows 7 TRIM command, an essential feature for maintaining long term SSD performance.

Overall

8.7 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

In fact, OS X, XP and RAID 0 users who don't benefit from TRIM will be pleased to find drive performance maintained very well over time due to the DuraClass technology of the SandForce drives.

Still, 280MB/s and 240MB/s respectively is very quick, even if it's a few clicks off the performance of the Sandforce-powered competition.

With that in mind, a high performance conventional drive such as Western Digital's Velociraptor 600GB could make more sense for those who need a better balance of price, performance and capacity.
