Pros
Fast, Really Fast, Super FAST !!
Cons
Performance is not cheap !
Summary
I am currently running four (4) of these in Raid 0 on an LSI 9265-8i (with FastPath and the BBU). Very fast and fairly reliable (dropped the Raid 0 once when 1 drive was flagged as bad - never found anything wrong with it). This build was initially done with an Intel Elm Crest - that was fast but no comparison to this. I am running an Intel DX58S02 (BIOS 888) / 990X / 24 GB GSkill. No O/C. I had to slow the post process down (display the splash screen) otherwise the spinners ( 4 x Hitachi on the Intel on-board) would not have enough time to spin up and I had problems with that Raid 10 configuration. I take automatic full image backups twice a day in case I lose the Raid 0 configuration. No real performance hit doing this - and from experience the restore is quite quick.

Pros
Wicked fast

Got on sale for a very low price
Cons
Would have been far to pricy had it not been on sale
Summary
Since installing as a drive for my OS, my boot times are unreal. It was super easy to install. The regular price point is very high and unless you can get this drive on sale, you might get more value out of a comparable drive from a different manufacture.

Pros
Fast read & write, fast response time.
Cons
Still a lot of money for the size of the drive.
Summary
I had a bit of trouble with this drive but I updated everything I could and it seems to run fine now. I would buy another one if i needed it. SSD's are not for everyone but if you think you need it and can afford it then go for it you won't be disappointed. Just as a example my boot time to windows was 1 minuets with my old hard drive now its 30 seconds.

Pros
Sata III, 6gb/s, Incredible read/ write speed.
Cons
Stability Issues, Price
Summary
Running 2 Wildfire 120's on an Asus P8P67 WS Revolution in Raid0 on the Intel Ports, had BSOD issues, hanging and freezes. There is a fix to this though!

There is a firmware update  to 2.2.0, and a pre-release accessable. Both through the Patriot forum. Installed the new (pre-release) firmware (3.3.0) off the Patriot SSD Support Forum and everything seems to be running fine now, and still maintaining incredible (have not run bench tests, but 7.9 WEI) speeds.

The firmware update s should be better promoted. Had I been aware of the available upgrade, it would have been the first thing to do, as it seems to solve this issue which many SandForce SSD's face, even of other brands.

Cons
Bad compatibilty with nvidia sata 2 chipsets
Summary

Pros
6 GB/s and Sandforce controller
Cons
none! (except the price)
Summary
I can't believe how much difference an ssd makes! Not to mention this is one of the high end ones. This beast loads programs super fast and cuts windows startup time.
(other thoughts): use regular hdd for storage

Pros
Very fast And 32nm Nand
Cons
price
Summary
I went with the wildfire because it uses 32nm nand. So far I have been very impressed with the speed of this beast. After reading some much about the issues with 24nm I decided to go with this and I am glad I did. The price was more than some others but if it does what it's supposed to do without any problems the few extra bucks will be worth it. Time will tell.

Pros
7.8 performance index on Win7 64-bit Ultimate , small and light, bracket and screws are included if needed
Cons
Price is a little high but right on par with similar models by OCZ
Summary
I am very happy with this purchase. I was not sure sure how this would perform in the real world... and it peforms admirably well! The most demanding games' loading times have been cut by at least half and in most cases, it is 5 to 10 times faster. I'm comparing to a regular SATAII hard drive with a 64MB buffer.

Comment: Between OCZ and Patriot the performance is virtually identical. Kudos for Patriot on not only being aggressive on MSRP out of the gate, but also picking the best possible NAND configuration for performance on day one. The Wildfire is Patriot's MAX IOPS equivalent, an excellent first entry into t

Comment: Get a load of this! Not only is the Patriot Wildfire able to break 1000MB/s read, but it almost does so when writing data as well. What's crazy is we are using a standard motherboard, no add-on RAID controller like the LSI units we test to achieve incredible speeds like this. The Intel Z68 and X

Comment: Patriot has come to market with a drive that delivers excellent performance characteristics with its combination of Sandforce 2281 controller and 32nm MLC NAND in place of the 25nm delivered on the other 22XX-controlled comparison drives.

Comment: The WildFire SSD though differs from all other drives released thus far, by being Patriot's first to utilize SATA 6Gb/s technology. Along with the SATA 6Gb/s interface, the WildFire utilizes the latest Sandforce SF-2281 controller which allows the drive to support incredibly fast read and write
