Patriot Wildfire 120GB Solid State Drive Review

The Packaging




In order to get better pictures, I took the shrink wrap off the Patriot Wildfire package. The front of the box doesn't give us a lot of information, but we do get capacity and the product name.




On the back of the package Patriot gives us some general information about Wildfire, warranty length and such, but no detailed information on performance.




Here is where things get interesting. In order to open the top flap you must first break the shrink wrap seal. On the inner portion of the flap I found all sorts of useful information like performance claims, full specifications and even a CAD style drawing of the drives dimensions.


I have to wonder if the dimensions were put there for my own amusement after finding that the OCZ Technology casing was too large for many notebooks (problem solved at a later date). Still, this is great information for the guy or gal shopping at Microcenter and would help them make a purchasing decision if they could get to the information before buying the product.




The inner packaging follows Patriot's other successful drives and keeps the desktop adapter bracket in a separate container. The drive is housed in its own plastic housing.
