Patriot Warp 32GB Solid State Drive review

It feels like we've been talking about solid state storage as the future of the hard disk for a long time now, but 2008 finally seems to be the year when this began to turn from mere speculation to reality.  Plenty of companies are now shipping SSDs at a wide variety of price points (although, of course, still not at the kind of per Gigabyte pricing levels we're used to with platter-based drives), and the rise of the netbook has seen cheap SSDs become commonplace in products such as ASUS' Eee PC and its various spin-offs from rival manufacturers.

Despite all this growth in the market, today marks what is rather surprisingly our first review of a solid state hard drive, which comes courtesy of Patriot and their Warp series of Serial ATA drives.  We'll be taking a look at their cheapest model in this range, sporting a 32GB capacity, to see whether the time is ripe to make the jump to an SSD for your storage needs.
