Memory manufacturer Patriot is this week announce the availability of its new SSD range offering storage up to 2 TB and taking the form of the Patriot P200 series SSD a 2.5″ internal SATA III 6 Gbps solid state drive.

“Patriot’s P200 series is not only a high-performance SSD with huge capacities, but it is also a smart device. Laptop users often use “standby mode” to avoid waiting for their laptop to reboot. This process saves time, but comes at the expense of the battery life. The P200 is designed to prevent battery loss in lower power states by reducing power entirely to the SATA interface when the drive is not in use. The P200 is equipped with a built-in temperature sensor to detect excessive heat to protect the drive from overheating. “
