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: 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: I've always liked and used OCZ products like RAM, Power supplies and the original Revo Drive, but this RevoDrive 3 is a big disapointment. Like everybody else says, it has the one egg rating because I cant give it a zero or negative egg.
Pros: well it was kind of fast when it worked
Cons: After having the original Revo drive from a few years back work so flawlessly (and still working like a champ right now as I type this in my 780i board ) I thought I'd give this one a shot. Even after all the bad reviews I went ahead and bought it. I should have listened to the reviews. A little over 1 month and FAILURE of this drive. Also, when it did work for the one month, it did not seem near a fast or snappy as my original Revo that is working flawlessly in my ot...
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.
Cons: I should have done more research on this drive was blinded by the speed. If you check out their forums their seems to be many problems. Mine was machine crashed then I got error message that drive was altered. Lost all my data it seems and am waiting for RMA from OCZ. Will update after their response.
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.
