240GB Patriot BLAST, 2.5" SSD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, Phison S10, 256MB Cache, Read 560MB/s, Write 530MB/s, 100k IOPS is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money This is my first SSD drive. So happy with it that I purchased 2 more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast ssd Used in someone else's pc. Very quick and he hasn't complained so far about the drive
Date published: 2016-07-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great price, poor performance Bought one of these to supplement my system which was running low on space. It took an absolute age to copy anything over to the drive, the copy/write speeds were horrendous. Comparing the speed of the other SSD I have in my system which cost twice the price, I was getting a fraction of the speed whilst copying mainly video and music over to this new drive.. I ran some benchmarks after this and confirmed the writing was very slow indeed. The reading was fine, but the writing awful!. Once my data is on I'm sure it will be fine, It will just take much much longer than anticipated to get it there.. As others have said on others sites too, this appears to be TLC NAND which is awful for random writes. Very disappointed with the performance and would not buy another even if the price was half what I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin Ive upgraded an older laptop with this drive and now it works just fine and a lot faster than before. A good buy!
Date published: 2016-06-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but dont download the toolkit Very good SSD, but the toolkit for it downloaded off of the manufacturer's site irreparably broke it. Stay away from it and it'll do very well! Also SCAN has very good customer service in the event that things do go wrong
Date published: 2016-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy for the price I did buy this SSD based on the price and figures it claimed. I hadn't really heard of the brand but other reviews and comments on it convinced me to give it a try. So far I've only used the drive for games but they load as fast as I'd expect from a SSD. Is it quicker than others? I have no idea. It's fast and does what I want. I can't tell the difference from games on my other SSD. The drive feels decent quality and looks alright in my case, I have no regrets buying a brand I wasn't too familiar with as it seems to do as it claims for less money than other SSDs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice/Cheap Bought this to add my steam games onto it, nice/quick SSD I have read some bad reviews regarding RMA's with patriot but so far so good, really good deal.
Date published: 2016-03-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent SSD and price This is a relatively new manufacturer on the block but is well worth checking out. For its price the Patriot offers great value-for-money. This model offers all the performance of higher priced ones; Sata III interface (backwards compatible), 256mb cache and superior transfer rates. Have had no issues with it after several weeks booting up my new system and look forward to reliable service ahead.
