Today we are comparing the Patriot Warp V2 to a couple of other 2.5 inch drives that are either widely used in the industry or reviewed here at TweakTown.

 

Hitachi 7K100: The 7K100 is a 100GB notebook hard drive that was used by several notebook manufacturers. The drive came with my Lenovo T60.

 

Hitachi 7K500: The 7K500 is a 500GB drive that is considered the Scorpio Black's biggest challenger. The 7K500 is taller than most notebook hard drives and will not fit in more than a handful of notebooks.

 

G.Skill SLC SSD: The G.Skill SLC SSD is a rebadged Samsung drive with 64GB of capacity. The drive currently e-tails for more than 600 U.S.D.; more than six times the amount of the Scorpio Black 320.

 

Western Digital Scorpio Black: The WD Scorpio Black is a past award winner here at TweakTown and we found it to be one of the best platter based notebook drives available. At the time of the review the 320GB Black cost less than 110 USD.

 

Crucial CT32GBFAB0: The Crucial SLC SSD is one of the early technology solid state drives and will provide a great example of just how far solid state has progressed.
