Patriot Burst 240gb SSD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im at work right now, but I purchased one recently...and benched it against my Samsung 850 EVO 250gb and its actually the same (ish) as the Samsung in read/write and random iops.

 

Is the hate on these cheap drives their longevity or potential loss of data?  When I ran the benches last night (I Can post the screenies tonight if needed) I was amazed I was getting 540 read / 450 write with 60k/50k randoms.  (Ryzen system in my sig)

 

I mean, the Samsung cost me around $85 iirc when I bought it...this drive was $30.  Ive had cheap drives in use for over a year now in other PCs and they haven't failed or anything on me yet.  Is the yet the concern?

The concern is more related to people interested in keeping their data, I have not seen users worrying a lot about the brand or functionality of their storage devices when they don't care about what's on the storage device. For example, the OS can be easily recovered from the internet, movies, music, etc... The other type of users will prefer the experience offered by well-known manufacturers for several different reasons. It all depends who you are talking too, some people cannot just take the risk of losing one file.

Okay - Im apart of the first group.  I keep my NAS filled with the things I dont want to lose/cant lose.  So that's likely my reason for making this thread - I can redo my OS in 10 minutes lol, DL drivers, games and off to the races.  So peace of mind isn't something I need to pay for (however the main drive in all my rigs is Samsung SSD...because it is known for its reliability and I dont WANT problems and I know they are far less likely with a good brand)

 

Well, than I will say this - Patriot Burst SSD is so far a winner for me in the reads and writes!  I need to bench my TeamGroup SSDs now to see how they compare.

Even the largest companies with a long history and experience can not assure you that a unit will never fail. Therefore, the best thing to do is to have a backup of things that can not be recovered from different sources, that is the main recommendation that you will always hear regardless of the manufacturer since all the units will stop working at some point one day.
