I have a 120GB SATAIII Pyro SSD that was running good for the few months I had it.
I originally ran an ATTO benchmark and got great read/write speeds.
As of the last few days, I started getting random reboots (BSoD) on my computer (Windows 7 x64 Home Prem).
I wasn't sure what the cause was so I tried updating the video card driver, etc.
To make a long story short, I looked on the Patriot website and saw there was a newer firmware update than what I had.
Now that I've installed the new firmware, my Windows Experience Index for the hard drive shows it as 7.0 which is the lowest on the system.
I then ran the ATTO benchmark and am getting roughly 300MB read/write.
I was getting 500+ when I first got the drive.
The drive is only 1/2 full at this point.
Any ideas as to what would cause this?
Is it possible it was the firmware update?
Any advice / input would be appreciated.
