Patriot Pyro 120GB Solid State Drive Review @ APH Networks

Unless you have never exposed yourself to the outside world before, chances are that you have heard of Nero.

No, I am not talking about Ahead Software’s Nero Burning ROM, but rather, Roman Emperor Nero from AD 54 to 68. Known for his obsession with fire, historical sources say he could be the one who started the Great Fire of Rome, with facts indicating he burned Christians in his garden at night for a source of light.

Others say he sang the “Sack of Ilium” during the Great Fire of Rome in stage clothes, along with popular legends describing him playing the fiddle at the same time (Wikipedia says this is not true, however). But regardless of whether some stories are true and some stories were made up, let’s put it into a modern perspective and think about it for a moment: If Nero works for your company’s marketing department, what kind of product names will he come up with? Pyro? Wildfire? If that is indeed the case, I think we have found the company that hired him: Patriot Memory. Jokes aside, if you look at the company’s latest line of solid state drives based off the SandForce SF-2281 SATA 6Gb/s controller, this is exactly what it is, haha. Their flagship product — the Wildfire series — competes against the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS, while the lower priced Pyro series takes on the Agility 3; which we have both reviewed in the past. Reviews on the web say the Wildfire can burn to the Vertex, but can the Pyro outdo OCZ’s Agility? (Yes, all puns intended.) Read on to find out!
