Final Thoughts

Flash prices are dropping and when it comes to SSDs like Patriot's VPN100 1TB, they deserve another look. When first launched, the VPN100 1TB retailed for close to $200, now it is selling on Amazon for the low price of only $133. This puts the VPN100 in the price range of much lower performing value SSDs. Not only that, but when compared to some other low priced E12 powered SSDs out there, we like the VPN100 better because it gives you a full 1024GB raw capacity and it is one of the few that comes with an integrated M.2 heat sink at the 1TB capacity point.

When we started testing the VPN100, we had no idea that we would come across a performance rivalry between it and Samsung's EVO Plus. As testing progressed, our results led us to the unforeseen conclusion that not only is Patriot's VPN100 1TB a better value than Samsung's EVO plus, it is also the better SSD of the two in terms of performance. As we see it, the only place where the EVO Plus has an advantage over the VPN100 is length of warranty. However, this is easy for us to overlook when we consider the elephant in the room; you will pay a whopping 65% more for an EVO plus.

Priced like a value SSD while at the same time delivering top of the line performance is why Patriot's Viper VPN100 is TweakTown approved and highly recommended.
