Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 01 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 14 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 13 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb drive for booting This is my first SSD, so have nothing to really gauge it against, but i can say that i am not disappointed in its performance, its lightning quick verses my SATA HDD in my laptop, and the price of this is very reasonable. Glad i purchased. 29 February 2016
