Summary: When i built my current desktop I emailed my "wish list" that i built it from to a friend. He just submitted it as his order as well. Neither of us have had a problem with our Revo SSD's.
Pros: Its fast. That may be a simplified answer, but its no less true for that. Applications don't load, they just open. Word, excel, photoshop, premier, programs that on lesser drives have to load simply open with this drive.
Cons: It is not inexpensive. (you do however get what you pay for)
Summary: This drive is very fast, but it does have its drawbacks. The device itself has to POST, so it adds to the boot time. Once it gets past POST, boot is super fast. Games and programs load very fast. My computer is just very responsive in general for it. The only other complaint I have about it is the fact that it utilizes a built-in RAID for the data storage. They do that to make it really fast, but that makes it almost impossible for any kind of recovery.
Summary: Screaming fast! I love this thing and I wish I had bought the 480gb one. It is so much faster than anything I have ever used before. I have been using SSDs mounted to SATA for a long time, but PCI is the way to go for sure. SO FAST!!!! The install was easy for me. Follow the instructions, and it takes about 15-20min from opening the box to configuring the drive. Not bad at all, and kind of fun too.
Summary: This is a really fast drive, but what I am looking for is stability more than speed. I used this drive as my OS drive for about 3 days until I started getting blue screens and decided to return it, I didn't have time to mess with it to figure out what was going on.
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. CAVEAT EMPTOR.
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. Don't get me wrong this thing is fast but the result from my benchmark will shock you, and I don't think anyone who bought this product on amazon has ran a benchmark.... so I'll be the first to report this.
