Before doing anything to your SSD make a full image backup.
You have to decide if you want to try any methods of improving performance to your SSD, there are risks, as with most things done on computers.

Check your firmware version with AS SSD, you don't have to run the benchmark, it will tell you the firmware version in the upper left corner.
Also CrystalDiskInfo will show you the firmware.

First, make sure this is your SSD, installing the wrong firmware may brick the SSD.
Drivers and downloads for Pyro 60GB SATA III 2.5

One option to secure erase: Guide: Secure Erase/Zero Write/Factory Clear a Patriot SSD with Free/OSS software.
Those are the right drivers Why do I have to wipe my drive ?
You don't have to, but a secure erase will return performance, depending on the number of writes it has accumulated, it will start to have a diminishing affect as the SSD gets higher number of writes.
If it's still performing well for you, then don't worry about any benchmarks or the WEI score, leave it as it is.

That is a really nice SSD, that's a great score.
Any noticeable performance increase over the other SSDs you have?

Yes but not because of the SSD.
My Samsung 830 in my desktop is on a Marvell 6.0Gbs controller chipset. So it never reaches its full potential.

The 840 is using the Intel 6.0Gbs chipset in the laptop.
A big difference in the Marvell and Intel controller chipsets.

Thanks, agree the Intel controller is much better than the Marvell.

Just for fun, this is my new Mushkin 64GB USB3 score! This is the first USB flash drive I ever owned that can slap a traditional hard drive badly! This thing is amazingly fast! It came with FAT 32. Quickly formated to ExFAT and this is the result:
