Patriot Warp V.2 (128GB)
Offered in three capacities; cheaper than the competition; faster than many common laptop hard drives.
Disappointing speed gains and battery life; long boot time.
The inexpensive price of the Patriot Warp V.2 helps it stand out among solid-state hard drives, but its performance shows few significant benefits over normal hard disks. You'd be better off buying a fast 7,200rpm laptop hard drive or selling your firstborn to invest in the Intel X-25M SSD.
