Very fast for large files but not a difference for normal usage

Summary: I had it for about 2 months and so far it has been working great. The biggest differences are when I work with huge file sizes when doing video editing or things like that. Its faster than my previous velaciraptor but for regular usage it doesn't feel as fast a a SATA 3 SSD. This is definitely for hard core applications. I would buy it again and I will buy another with more capacity.
OCZ do not have Linux drivers for Revo3 and they are not planning any.

Summary: I was planning to max out my gaming rig and thus did some research on PCI-E SSD to find one that can replace my Vertex 3 SSD drive. Eventually narrowed down to the OCZ revodrive 3 X2 which is effectively a RAID-0 setup on a single PCI-E card with specs that seem to promise top performance of 1.5GB/S read and 1.225GB/s write which is quite top of the line. Bought the drive, flashed the firmware to latest version 2.11 and gave it a run with Windows 7 Ultimate.
Summary: Please note that this SSD is end of lifed and you should buy the Revodrive 350 instead, which is faster, cheaper and has Linux support (irritatingly, this model won't ever get official Linux support despite using the same controllers as the 350).
RevoDrive - Great Oerformance - Terrible Install Process
Corner Studio Ltd, Amazon
14 June 2013
Summary: Installed OK but wasn't recognized in windows Required a system BIOS upgrade to get it recognized Then terrible problems cloning the disk from old SATA to Revo SSD using Acronis software so that the revodrive bacame a bootable disk. Took weeks to resolve and hours of time on support calls to Acronis but got it working in the end Now I can shutdown and restart and login with everything loaded up at start-up in just over 60 seconds.
