Patriot Pyro 120GB SSD Review

Packaging & Closer Look

The Pyro is presented in a similar type of box as Patriot package their memory solutions. In the very centre we have a sneak preview of the Pyro drive and key features are printed on the front of the packaging. With Pyro being associated with flames and fire, Patriot have gone with this orange design to capture the eye and I have to agree it does look good.

Inside the packaging, aside from the actual drive there is only an instructions leaflet including in the ‘bundle’.

The packaging for Pyro

The bundle is scarce of any added extras

With the drive now out of its packaging we can take a closer look at its build quality and exterior design. Unlike many of the SSDs we have taken a look at recently the Pyro has a matt finish to the front plate. Carrying on with the flame type design, the front also has the orange wisps, the capacity, size of drive and interface speed. The outer edge has a glossy metallic finish to glistens when the light catches it.

The front of the Pyro SSD

Spinning the SSD over we can see the reverse has a plethora of detail containing serial numbers, model name, firmware revision, disclaimer and included standards. Being SATA 3 we have the SATA port and SATA power port for interfacing with the drive. There are also 4 mounting holes for securing the drive within your computer case.
