Final Thoughts

Patriot had a great run with the first two Warp drives and we had high hopes for the V3. Performance wise, the V3 is not that much of an improvement over the V2, but it does bring a capacity that was unobtainable with the previous series. Since the V3 is only available in 256GB capacity, we can live with that; but think of this version as the Warp 2.5 when it comes to performance.

The Warp V3 is starting to show up at all of the major etailers, so you will be able to find the drives. The cost is still riding a wave and it is still on the upside with Newegg listing it at 595.00 USD and that is the lowest cost I was able to find; much lower than the others. Still, 595 is a tough pill to swallow with the TITAN sitting in the back ground at 70 Dollars less for nearly identical performance. Once the prices stabilize, you can pretty much flip a coin.

We were not disappointed with the performance of the V3, but it didn't deliver like the V2 did when it was first launched. The V2 outperformed everything when it first arrived and it would be a tough act to follow.
