What the Critics are Saying About the Patriot Memory Torqx 2 SSD

The SSD Review

"Congratulations to Patriot for not only listening to consumer demand for a price conscious SSD that has availably capacity, but also, for sticking with the 99% of computer users that are still living in the SATA 2 computer world."
--The SSD Review

HTC Reviews Silver Award

"Looking at the CrystalDisk Mark tests in read speed, the Torqx 2 128 GB shows the best performance with sequential transfer speeds of 256 MB/s."
--HTC Reviews

Nexthardware.com

"During our tests we were able to fully test the Torqx 2 and, among the strengths identified, we must mention the consistency of performance in reading and writing on the pattern of medium and large size, even in extreme situations, where the controller Phison proves more efficient."

This SSD is fast and tiny, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
J. smith
The nicest aspect is that the netbook is now quieter and stays much cooler on my lap.
A. Gray
For the light duty use cases of a netbook the 32GB SSD is nearly perfect.

can't wait for these to get cheaper. the read/write is about as good as you can get unless you want to go for the "extreme edition" high end models, which aren't a whole lot better. i bought a couple of the little ones to test out a raid 0 array. i'd have to say it is pretty impressive. even used as a single drive their speed is amazing, i have an AMD/ASUS rig with a 955BE phenom II and a lot of gamer/ O.C. parts in it. I don't O.C. because i have no need to. even on my initial plate hdd it took like 4 or 5 seconds to boot, indexed my whole drive and it searches almost instantaneously, same with loading programs. i didn't think it could get any faster than that. after i installed these it did. i use this computer mainly for DAW software. basically like a recording/editing/mixing studio. sometimes this involves large files, and always involves multiple hardware inputs and simultaneous virtual environments that all need to respond in real time. random read and write speeds as well as sequential are imeperitive to a low latency environment. this is where i saw the greatest increase in speed. so if you like editing audio or video, playing games with a large hard disc presence, or even just as a boot drive, these are probably the most cost effective and well designed SATA II sdds i have found. i had planned to get 4 32GB and put them all in raid 0, but there is no way i can see it getting faster than it is. probably go with raid 5 if i do get more. anyway, highly recommended. $400 is kind of steep for a single 250gb drive, but $240 or so for a blazingly fast 4 drive raid array is definitly worth it. i'd wait for when amazon has it stocked though. some of the other sellers get kind of nutty with the pricing.

I got this drive specifically to test the new Windows 8 O/S.
Win 8 installed quickly and painlessly.
In about 15 minutes, you are up and running.
This drives shows experience index at 7.1 (for this ssd), out of the new possible 9.9.
This fresh install hasn't been optimised to run yet, in my case.
When you press sleep, the mouse hasn't stopped moving before fans stop turning.
It wakes just as fast.
Another fine product delivered quick and intact.
Win-8 must be for people who can not type.
Sequential Read: up to 270MB/s, Sequential Write: up to 230MB/s, Based on internal ATTO Disk Benchmark testing.
This greatly outshines my corsair V-32 ssd, for speed.

Very good and fast for my boot disk where I installed Windows 7, it starts really fast. Everything is really fast, my windows boots in a few seconds. If you are looking for a boot disk for your OS, this is perfect. All my other files are on a regular HDD.

I purchased this drive for less than $1/GB (after rebate). If you browse for reviews of this drive on the internet, you will see that this SDD performs on par with drives that are now 3 years old but is selling at prices for drives of today. Basically, it is way overpriced. The drive speeds are better than a hard disk but much slower than other SSD's so the price needs to come under $1/GB to make sense.

After using SSD's now for almost two years, I still keep going back to this one. Even though it runs on Sata2
it still out performs several of the Sata3 disks Im running now.
Price has not come down on the Torqx2 series in the two years ive been using them. 0% failure rate, and
no issues with Motherboard compatability.
HIGHLY RECOMEND

While this is on the small side of the ssd range, I've been using this on my laptop running debian. I replaced the 320gb 7200rpm drive and the ssd blows it out of the water. I'm currently using roughly 4gb for my linux install. If you're on the fence about getting into the ssd market, I'd say pick one of these up. When I purchased it was roughly $1/gb which is a pretty fair deal.
