Advertised speeds 555/535 MBps do not even come close to matching real world performance. I typically get 400/300ish with CrystalDiskMark on default settings. Only when I set CrystalDiskMark to zero fill (where it is writing only zeros to the drive) do I get speeds close to advertised. Most other drives come close to their advertised speeds with CrystalDiskMark on default settings, but not my Patriot Flare. This drive also seems to have early failure issues as reported by reviews online. Hopefully mine lasts awhile, though.
