Summary: I bought this Revo Drive 3 Series of SSD's and like anyone else buying ssd I noticed that it had about a 1000mb/s read/write which is REALLY REALLY FAST. However, after using this PCI SSD for 2 week I decided to a do a benchmark out of curiosity to test the speed.
Summary: •Do explain why you liked or disliked this product. •Do compare to similar products and share how long you've used this product. •Do identify specific attributes (e.g. comfort & fit of a shirt or the battery life of a camera) and whether they met your expectations.
Great very fast drive, but do your research to make sure it will run on your board!

Summary: Of all the SSD drives and SSD cards I have worked with in my I.T. career since 1995, this is the fastest SSD PCI-Express 4X unit that I have ever built into a system. That said you have to double check that your motherboard will support it and it will have to be your boot drive on most of the setups...
Summary: I purchased this since it was on sale here on Amazon. I put it in a new build and installed windows 7 on it (with the help of the drivers on OCZ's website). I ran some speed test on it (Crystal Disk Mark and ATTO) the ATTO bench marks were right on with the specs.
Summary: OCZ Technology Revo Drive 3 Series 240GB PCI Express 8 GB-s Slim - RVD3-FHPX4-240G It came today and hooked it up, lesson number of don't put it in the PCIe slot that is the same as your graphic card most newer boards have two 16 lane slots they become 8 when you populate the second one, so the 4x...
Summary: After over a year of reading and lusting over these Revodrives, I finally pulled the trigger and bought one, resisting the whole SATA3 and SATA II stuff. I read about every model, and raid speeds, and install way before I bought.
Summary: OCZ makes good products but this HD is medeocre. Causes hang ups and problems after a while. Long boot times suck compared to SSD SATA3 drives. I switched to an OCZ SATA drive and like it better. The PCI-E drive is sitting in a drawer while I use the SATA drive. I may use it as a swap drive.
Summary: Works as expected however I did not get MAXIMUM performance as rated. Not fully compatible with all motherboards at optimized transfer speed of 1GB. I only get about 800GB a sec for large block files and less with smaller (as expected) but worse than other SSDs.
Summary: I have been using SSD's since their incarnation and decided it was time to replace my 120GB (2x60GB) RAID0 SSD array on my Windows machine. As soon as I saw the price drop on these drives, I went ahead and purchased it thinking it was a steal.
