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: Works as expected however I did not get MAXIMUM performance as rated. Not fully compatible with all motherboards at optimized transfer speed of 1GB. I only get about 800GB a sec for large block files and less with smaller (as expected) but worse than other SSDs.
Summary: OCZ Technology Revo Drive 3 Series 240GB PCI Express 8 GB-s Slim - RVD3-FHPX4-240G It came today and hooked it up, lesson number of don't put it in the PCIe slot that is the same as your graphic card most newer boards have two 16 lane slots they become 8 when you populate the second one, so the 4x slot is enough for the card.
Summary: I recently purchased the OCZ Revo Drive 3 240GB PCIe as an upgrade for my Intel X58 based gaming system. I am using it as the primary boot drive for the OS, Applications, and Games. While the drive was somewhat of a pain to setup initially, I am very pleased with the result. Installation of Windows 7 Ultimate from a USB Drive only took a couple minutes. System startup, shutdown, and application load times is also significantly improved.
Summary: Extremely fast SSD drive for common application usage. The only issue is that some motherboards do not allow you to boot from it. Double check if both your OS and your motherboard allow UEFI and normal boots from add-in cards. The HP workstation series has issues with this for example. Otherwise it is my first choice for non-cache related storage.
