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...
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: 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: 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.
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: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: Fast, but not as fast as it says. Only get about 650MB/s burst write on a 10Mb file, get about 150MB/s on a 1Gb file(Mega/Gigate-Bytes) under debian, same in fedora - this is native. Using it mapped directly to a storage pool for KVM I get near that in the guest, though if I use IOMMU pass throug...
Cons: The advertised speeds are a just wrong. My Corsair 40GB SATAIII disk can keep up with this in terms of speed, dont waste your money !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: STICK WITH A SATA SSD MUCH EASIER TO USE AND MORE RELIABLE
Pros: I am sure this is a great product if used with the correct motherboard. Windows 7 will give a 7.9 rating for harddrive speed, BUT I THINK WINDOWS ONLY LOOKS AT HARDWARE AND NOT THE REAL PERFORMANCE. THIS SSD TESTED AT ONLY 345 NOT 975 ADVERTISED WITH MY BOARD
Cons: I installed windows on 2 harddrives then cloned one on to this one. A lot of work to boot windows off this SSD. After a few days of use blue screen every day several time a day. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OCZ'S PRODUCT PAGE, BY THE WAY THIER SITE SUCKS WITH BROKEN LINKS AND CONFUSING MENUS, MAKE SURE YO...
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.
