Patriot Memory Pyro SE SSD is a 2.5-inch form-factor based on the SATA 6.0 Gb/s interface and the SandForce SF-2281 controller. The Pyro SE will be offered in 60 GB, 120 GB and 240 GB capacities. In addition, the drives include DuraClass, DuraWrite, TRIM support and comes with a 3-year warranty.

Though pricing has not been announced, users should expect the pricing for the drives to be close to the current pricing of the Pyro SSD drives:  60 GB - $110, 120 GB - $205, and 240 GB - $440. Read more on the new Patriot Memory's Pyro SE SSDs at the product page

    They are not getting more affordable by any means. Almost 9 months ago when I bought a 120gb ssd it was still around $200. Now the same level of ssds have gotten better but the price has remained the same. You can keep making ssds more reliable and better and faster but the market wont expand until there is a significant drop in price.

    Wait so they're faster and more reliable and you're bitching about the cost of $/GB not dropping?

    You just sound like you're bitter because you jumped the gun.

    I can't help but notice that more solid state drives are being released and we have some new players entering the market. We now have more choices than at anytime in the past. However, we are not seeing some sort of proportionate price reduction.

    I'm not bitter. I'm pretty happy with my ssd especially since i got it on sale and it ended costing $1.4/gb. I'm just say that the market for them won't expand like we'd like if prices stay the same.

    It's nice that theyre improving in specs, but the bigger the market the more competitive it becomes and the better it is for us as consumers.

    Yep they need a 160gb for $99 bucks. Cheaper than where they are now I know, but that's the price point where people will opt for one. Keep in mind that 160gb is not enough so you still need a 2nd hard drive. But it is enough to put a lot of games, a few movies and your OS on.
