TODO alt text

Patriot inferno 100gb

The SSD market is rather incestuous with a number of manufacturers choosing similar off-the-shelf components, most notably the Sandforce SF-1200 controller.

We've therefore lined the Patriot Inferno 100GB up against two of its closest Sandforce-powered rivals, the Corsair Force F100 100GB and OCZ Vertex 2 100GB.

Let battle commence.
