If you buy it - Back UP Your DATA every day :)

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. If you buy this product - make sure you back up your data DAILY.
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.
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. When this drive works, it's great, but I'm tired of having to redo it every month. Do not buy this drive if you know what's good for you.
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. Once I had it up and running, Windows booted almost instantaneously and the performance index skyrocketed to 7.8...until the BSOD the following day. And then the next BSOD, and the next, and so on.
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 detected to have bad sectors. So exactly what am I gaining with this drive? I can easily achieve the same thing with a $150 SSD.
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. At first I really did not know what I was doing, then at second I was in worst condition than at first.
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. OCZ has a reputation of high failure rate, and frustrating installation, with a majority of owners RMA'ing it because they can't get it to work.
Summary: Can't really rate it as this would not work on my machine - pity! I was running a core i7 chip on an ASUS motherboard and the damned drivers would NOT see the card. After contacting support I gave up and returned it. I normally like OCZ stuff and have one of their standard SSD drives - pity this one didn't work out for me really.
