Patriot Ignite 960GB SATA SSD Review

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

The Ignite’s sequential read speeds were excellent, exceeding 563 MB/s read and 546 MB/s in some tests. Drive speed is constant as well. We have yet to test a SATA drive that is faster than the Ignite. At these speeds, our test motherboard’s Intel SATA controller may be the ultimate limitation. Simply put, there may not be much more speed to be gained.

Patriot started to look like was fading from the SSD industry. The release of the Ignite line shows that they are very serious about offering competitive SSD products. The Ignite may not be flashy, but it is well build. Patriot has used high quality components throughout the Ignite and will no doubt give years of reliable service. That lack of flashy cosmetics allows Patriot to market the Ignite for a very attractive price. That makes it an excellent value.

The Patriot Ignite 960GB SATA SSD is available online from Newegg and Amazon for $379.99. This makes the Ignite one of the least expensive 1TB class solid state drives. The Ignite is also available in a 480GB capacity. That version is available online from Newegg and Amazon for $189.99.
