Against the cream of the OCZ crop, the OCZ Vertex 3, Patriot's Wildfire is an impressive little performer.

When you examine just how minimal the performance gap is in reads too, the overall speed of this Patriot Wildfire is amazing.

Reviews Word on the street for the Patriot Wildfire


9.3
Overall Patriot's Wildfire 120 GB SSD is a great choice if you are looking for the maximum in performance on a Sandforce driven SATA 6 Gbps SSD.

9.0
The Patriot Wildfire is a speedy, solid little SSD, and we've been impressed by the package it's put together.

Overall

9.1 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

The Wildfire 120 GB easily defeats the other Sandforce drives and is very close to Intel's 510 Series flagship which is the fastest SSD available right now.
by techPowerUp!
Which drive is faster depends largely on the workload, with Intel's drive also having the advantage of being 250 GB vs. 120 GB on the Wildfire.
by techPowerUp!
They're constantly trying to outdo one another at read/write performance, and occasionally falling over and grazing their figurative knees.
