Summary: Using a motherboard from revodrive's approved list, the drive will not install their own driver on their required OS , windows 7. It uses a 7 year old scsi driver, and will not update. The advertised performance is a lie. Do not accept weasel excuses from them. Overpriced, spend your money elsewhere.
Summary: This drive is excellent -- but ignore the reviews that refer to the hypothetical 1,500MB/sec numbers. It's really a 700MB/sec drive (which is why I subtracted 3 stars). OCZ advertises this drive as having a 1,500MB/sec read speed, using the ATTO benchmarking tool (ATTO lists OCZ as one of their partners). The problem is that the 1,500MB/sec number comes from reading/writing files with all zeroes.
Summary: The device worked great for a week. Insanely fast transfer. Then during heavy usage apparently the passive cooling heat-sink on the controller chip got insanely hot. Windows then unceremoniously had a BSOD caused by the OCZ driver. After perusing the "OCZ" forums I found other people with similar issues with cooling. They suggested directing a fan to pass air over the passive cooling heat-sink.
Summary: Bereits beim Installieren gibt es Vieles zu beachten: Keine HDDs angeschlossen; SATA Anschlüsse im IDE-Modus wird empfohlen; PC darf nicht übertaktet sein usw. Nach einem Monat zerstört sich die SSD selbt, da sie mehrere Abstürze des OS (die sie selbst verursacht) bewirkt und dabei die Hälfte der Sektoren irreparabel unbrauchbar werden. Weiters verursacht diese unbrauchbare SSD in weiterer Folge die Zerstörung eines Raid0 am Intel 6GB-Port.
