Is this Patriot Pyro a good deal??

http://www.frys.com/product/6728125?site=sa:adpages%20page:P7_FRI%20date:041114

For 240GB with a read write of 550 and 530 at $130 is a good deal I think, but the only problem is I'm not sure if this is reliable SSD. I can't seem to find any reviews on this particular SSD and was wondering if I should get it.

    I have a patriot pyro se in one of my htpc's and even though its on a sata2 controller its faster than my other htpc with a samsung 830 in it running sata3.

    There was a firmware update a couple of years ago which resolved my BSoD/lockup issues and I see reviews on newegg for it stops at 2012...
    its been running problem free ever since which is about 3 years in total now.

    Edit - I just wanted to add that this drive is old and hasn't been made in a while and I don't think they make any SSD's anymore. I'm not sure how they would handle a warranty return if they dont have anything to give you. I never had to deal with them in that regard.

    So you might want to consider a samsung evo for not alot more.

    Yeah I was originally gonna get the Samsung 840 evo 250GB for $20 more but I saw this was cheaper and a little faster. But you said this patriot drive is old?
  4. yea actually a samsung evo is better if you can pay the extra 20$.
