Patriot Inferno 60GB SSD Review
The Inferno comes in a very shiny box with a little window that allows you to see the Patriot comes in a lovely shade of red rather than the more common and sedate black.
Internally there are two separate plastic cases, one containing the drive and one containing a 2.5" to 3.5" adaptor to allow you to install the drive securely in any case of your choosing.
The adaptor is identical to the Corsair Nova one we've seen, but that's by no means a bad thing as if it isn't broken you don't need to fix it.
The drive makes a lovely difference to the plain black ones with a white sticker than seem prevalent. It's a lovely shade of red in high quality brushed aluminium and the chromatic sticker really helps give an air of class to proceedings.
Internally everything is as you'd expect with the SandForce controller centrally mounted and surrounded by the memory chips. One of the benefits of SandForce is that it doesn't require a cache chip and so the board has more room than other variants.
Along with the SandForce controller the capacity is provided by Intel MLC NAND chips which give good performance.
