Patriot Blast 240GB – Review

Patriot were kind enough to send me an SSD to review a few short weeks ago, however events and a hardware failure (yes that 2TB Samsung has finally died as well as my primary SSD 🙁 ) prevented me from being able to complete it.

However, I am back in business with this and another review due up shortly.  😀

The Patriot Blast is an entry-level drive for those looking for a workhorse to improve their PC’s speed.
