Summary: This card is fast. Not just compared to a standard hard drive, but to a SATA SSD as well. I tested it in a Mac with some 3rd party drivers and was quite happy with the performance. The particular unit I purchased was a "warehouse deal" and it was DOA. only 115GB of the 230GB was active. OCZ RMAed the unit promptly and replaced it within a week with an upgraded model.
Summary: I have had this drive constantly as my primary boot drive and it worked fantastic all until a few weeks when it finally died on me. Been using it since 2011 November. Would say this was the fastest option out there compared to SATA connections, though keep in mind to check your motherboard's compatibility. I had trouble with the older versions of Asus motherboards, but the new P7 ones worked pretty well.
Summary: I was looking for a fast boot drive for my bulldozer ASUS sabretooth and this is it. Installed easily and works perfectly. After several months I can detect no decrease in writing or reading speed. Doesn't seem to be plagued with the same problems all the other SSD drives have. (Windows 7, 64 bit).
Summary: Installing Windows 7 took less than 15 min start to finish, + 10 min to download and install updates. Takes less than 15 seconds to get from POST to Firefox. NO TRIM, but I just let it set at the log in screen for a few ours while I'm sleeping for garbage collection. All load times cut at least in half, most are about 1/10 the times. Was using a WD 1tb Black (64mb of cache) now I'm using it for storage. Seek latency is 0.1 in HD Tune.
Summary: i will purchase this soon, given that this is about speed , one can upgrade their cpu, one can upgrade their memory or one can purchase a pci ssd. pci ssd is certainly worth the extra price tag given that the money would have to be wasted on something else anyway if it was not spent on the pci ssd. i highly recommend pci ssds, even if it is 2x the price of a regular ssd.
Summary: So it turns out all this is is two 25GB SATA II SSDs with a cheap SATA controller, preconfigured as a software RAID 0. If you have no idea what I just said, then this still might be a fine product for you. It's certainly fast, and it's easy to set up, especially if you're running Windows.
Summary: Comments about OCZ Technology OCZSSDPX-1RVD0180 MLC Solid State Drive: These new drives install easy, are very fast, and a must for any hard core gamer who wants to be first in line. I cannot say one negative thing about these OCZ hard drives, they simply ROCK !!
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
Summary: Purchased the Revo Drive 80GB PCIe SSD from Amazon, and received it in 2 days (Amazon Prime). The card was purchased for business use (well, to test the plausibility of business use) and the initial benchmarks show the card matching the performance rating given on OCZ's website; exactly matching actually. For office/admin use the area to benchmark is in small file sizes written in small chunks.
Conclusion: When I very first heard about the OCZ RevoDrive, truth be told I was a bit of a skeptic. I figured just like past PCIe SSDs, it wouldn’t be bootable, and later when I was told that it in fact bootable, I then naturally assumed the price would ensure it would remain in the realm of luxury. Yet again, with OCZ’s assurance that pricing would fall in line slightly above two stand-alone drives, that assumption was proven wrong.
