Blasting high-speed drive ... Nothing fastest than this ...

AmrTaleb, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: Blasting fast, this the most incredible and lighting speed drive I've ever had ... Windows 7 boots in 12 seconds! PLEX Media Server is extremely fast ... This is a dream come true, my Samy 1TB SSD is pathetic compared to this ...

Warranty sucks be aware

Mark G., Newegg
10 September 2014
  • Summary: This is no way to treat a customer... Offer something to keep me as a customer... I really like the product, but I will not return to OCZ to purchase anything unless they back up their product....
  • Pros: fast drive first drive easy to install
  • Cons: 1st drive stopped working in 4/2014 2nd drive(replacement of first drive) never worked when received(sent back) 3rd drive (replacement of 2nd drive) stopped working 9/2014... I was told warranty starts from date of purchase, so when the 3rd drive stopped working, I GOT NOTHING... NO NEW DRIVE, NO DISCOUNT OF THE NEXT DRIVE...NOTHING... I spoke to Customer Care, HA HA They said the same thing... So I guess they really want me to spend more money with OCZ!!

Windows8=DPC Warchdog Violation (BSOD)

douggyFresh, dabs.com
25 July 2014
  • Summary: Not ok with Win8 This Drive recently lost its Boot Record and so trying to recover it with Win7 DVD did not work. Since its not seen as a SATA drive(but custom SCSI) you cant put it into an existing PC to recover the data - so do backups with a recovery disk. When it was working it was far faster than a SATA SSD drive. Windows was fully booted in under 7 seconds. "What causes DPC Watchdog Violations?

OCZ RevoDrive3 - short life

douggyFresh, dabs.com
16 May 2014
  • Summary: The PCI express drives are Amazingly Fast, and the PCI3 ones at typically 5Gbps - consistently, not bursts of 6Gbps from a cache that still reading at 113mbps. PC boots up in under 5 secs. Nothing better. BUT Its a pain to setup, other than using the F6 special drivers during windows setup, there are some BIOS changes to ignore SATA for boot up. It does not last long, a few years before it gets 'disk errors' and looses Windows (you really need it as your C drive).

1000 MBps vs 600 MBps

doug, dabs.com
16 May 2014
  • Summary: http://ocz.com/consumer/revodrive-3-pcie-ssd Whilst these drives are really quick and appear that your PC boots up like a tablet, the downside is the limited size, even with the 400gb ones. Also setting it as your C drive (the only reason for getting it) means you need to put the RAID drivers onto a floppy/USB drive during an install. But the OCZ PCI cards are as steady as a rock.

Very Fast

Ryan G., Newegg
17 March 2014
  • Pros: Fastest SSD. Faster than any sata SSD drive out there. Reliable.
  • Cons: Uses up a PCI-E slot, which means you really need a x79 series motherboard and an LGA 2011 processor otherwise you won't have enough PCI-E lanes to support a 16x gpu and this card. You will have to run them at 8x and 8x. Which is ok, but not ideal.
