Introduction

We are always on the lookout for SSDs that present what we feel is a great value proposition for enthusiasts. What we have on the bench today is a drive that has been around for a while - Patriot's VPN100. The VPN100 when it first came on the scene was marketed as a leading-edge performance oriented SSD, and it cost a pretty penny if you wanted to own one.

Fast forward to today, and Patriot's VPN100 is still considered among the fastest consumer NVMe SSDs on the market, but now it is much more affordable. In fact, this beast of a storage device has become a down-right bargain, priced similarly to value-oriented SSDs that cannot come close to serving up the kind performance that the VPN100 delivers.

On the bench today we have a 1TB Patriot VNP100 that delivers sequential performance of 3,480 MB/s read and up to 3,250 MB/s write as measured by our CrystalDiskMark testing. The drive is a quality piece that features an attractive and functional integrated heat sink, a blazing fast Phison PS5012-E12 8-channel NVMe controller and 64-Layer Toshiba BiCS3 flash. Additionally, the drive is rated for a whopping 1,665 terabytes written and the end-user gets a full 1TB of raw storage capacity. Let's take a closer look.
