Great review W1zzard!
Awesome drive! I want one so badly.
Also W1zz when you do the Windows 7 start up time, what do you use to do that?
I use a script to run a reboot so you can tell how long it takes to shutdown and back on. I think it would be fun to compare times if I don't need some sort of device.
On Error Resume Next
Dim Wsh, Time1, Time2, Result, PathFile, MsgResult, MsgA, AppName, KeyA, KeyB, TimeDiff
MsgA = "Please close all running applications and click on OK."
KeyA = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RestartTime\"
KeyB = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\RestartTime"
AppName = "ReBoot-Time"
Set Wsh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
PathFile = """" & WScript.ScriptFullName & """"
Result = wsh.RegRead(KeyA & "Times")
if Result = "" then
MsgResult = Msgbox (MsgA, vbOKCancel, AppName)
If MsgResult = vbcancel then WScript.Quit
Wsh.RegWrite KeyA & "Times", left(Time,8), "REG_SZ"
Wsh.RegWrite KeyB, PathFile, "REG_SZ"
Wsh.Run "cmd /c Shutdown -r -t 00", false, 0
Wsh.RegDelete KeyA & "Times"
TimeDiff = DateDiff("s",Result,left(Time,8))
MsgBox "Your computer reboots in " & TimeDiff & " seconds", VbInformation, AppName
Hmm maybe my next SSD.
i have plans on getting one soon
also great review W1zz
No word on Bsod Bug, no testing,
No use of Rst Driver, no word on Lpm....
Which Firmware does Patriot use? Or let me refrase: Which Sandforce release...
Actually you can just warn user to use a Sf-2281 ssd.
dammit i was tempted to buy one this weekend, but now dabs has removed it altogethertwitch:
do they know something i don't ?
i had no bsod issues with the firmware i used (3.2.0 as stated in the review)
That isnt the real point, every Sf-2281 SSD will do Bsod under some circumstances with the wrong firmware.
The point is which Sandforce Release does Patriot uses, the only company so far I know that's gone around the Bsod Bug is Extrememory.
A New option would be helpful, any word from Patriot?
i'm hoping that i only need to update the firmware, as i was going to get this specific version (120 gb) but dabs has stopped selling it, so i'll have to get the 240 gb version instead
i'm just hoping these bsod don't get worse the larger the drive you get
The Bsod is an Controller/Mainboard and so on problem, the size doesnt matter
