Patriot Pyro SE 240GB & Wildfire 240GB SSD Review

Review Score:
4 Flares 4 Flares ×

The Patriot Wildfire 240GB Solid State drive ships in a menacing black box with the capacity clearly seen in red bottom right of the box.

The Wildfire 240GB drive ships with a 3.5 inch drive adapter and some mounting screws, which can be useful for installation into some chassis.

The drive is housed in an attractive black chassis with red accenting.

The Patriot Wildfire 240GB uses MLC NAND (32nm) flash memory – which are Toshiba TH58TAG7D2FBA89 branded – both sides of the PCB are populated. We know that Patriot have used Toshiba TH58TAG802FBA89 memory before in the same drive. 16GB of the total memory is reserved for data parity (8GB for RAISE), block replacement and garbage collection.

The Sandforce 2281 controller can access eight separate NAND channels, and two NAND modules are placed on each channel. The controller is marked as ‘SF-2281VB1-SDC’.

The Wildfire uses the DuraWrite algorithm which delivers on the fly compression for improved overall performance. Patriot rate this particular drive as capable of delivering sequential read & write transfer speeds of 555MB/s read | 520MB/s Write.

    With the current price of hard drives, its even better value.

    Its tough to know with so many SF 2281 drives on market. they aren’t all equal but I bet most people wouldnt know if a system had a SATA 6 GB or 3GB drive in it, under real world conditions.

    The 120GB sounds like good value, how come you pay over double the price for double the storage (120>240gb)? is that a mistake?

    @ chief maggot. The high density NAND flash is more expensive so thats why. They aren’t just adding another 16 modules into the PCB. each one is twice the capacity.

    Hard to go wrong with a sf2281. Do patriot offer direct warranty or is it via the store?

    I got a lot of hassle trying to replace a faulty ocz last year
