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: 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: 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.
Summary: I highly recommend this product if you DO NOT CARE about your data. A are taking risk when buying OCZ. I had 2 OCZs, one went down in 3 months, the other one in 13 months. Since I bough Intel SSD I haven't had any problem for the last 2 years. Choose what you want to save - money or your data+time.
Summary: This drive has now crashed twice, losing all data from my Windows 8 installation, which in itself was a pain in the ass. I will never buy another OCZ product, as they do not support their products. I hear they are under financial pressure, so it may not matter much longer in any case.
Great Product, needs better installation manual. Oh wait, there is none

Summary: OK, I did not give a full 5 stars to the product. But that is just because it took me 14 hours to make it work. After it works, I am as happy as a Labrador Dog with two tails. The problem is that the damn thing is very hard to install.
Summary: BS performance specs: I got 380mb/s read and around 180mb/s write, far from the 900+ they say it can do. After installing windows, half of the drive's sectors are bad. Secure erase get them back while it's run on a secondary drive, but as soon as I tried installing windows on it, another 50GB is...
Prepare to enter a world of constant heart-ache & hair-pulling

Summary: First, let me say that I have always been one to pursue the bleeding edge of performance, and if you don't mind constant down-time and system re-installs, not to mention occasionally having to RMA the board, then this is the product for you.
