Blasting high-speed drive ... Nothing fastest than this ...
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 ...
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!!
Summary: had revo x2 that i had to rma because of failure , was sent replacement revo 3 x2 same problems now after months of trying to get this to work properly OCZ says now that the warranty is now expired by 5 months and there is nothing they can do.I have worked with Asus,Evga and they have always stood behind there products especially high end flagship models like this 650.00 ssd. Please Check reviews and forums as many consumers are having big problems with this product.
Pros: none, fast does not matter if it does not work
Cons: crashes,blue screens,total data loss,unstable,corrupt
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?
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).
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.
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.
