OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid review
14 May 2012
Conclusion: During regular usage, the RevoDrive Hybrid never really seemed to slow to hard drive speeds. The DataPlex software caches data very quickly and appears to rotate the cold data off quickly as well.
Conclusion: The RevoDrive Hybrid is a unique product which is difficult to compare. At its present market price it is a very nice deal just looking at the hardware specifications alone. The 1TB enterprise HDD provides the benefit of drive size, and the RAID-configured SATA III compatible SSD chips in caching...
Pros: SSD-like Performance, Easy Installation, Easy to use software, 3 Year Warranty
Cons: Must be used as the install drive, Has room for many more NAND
Summary: Final Thoughts
When it comes to pure performance once your data is cached the RevoDrive Hybrid is one of the fastest drives that we have tested to date! The only drive that even came close was OCZ’s own
Pros: – One of the fastest drives we have tested, – Reasonable price for performance / capacity, – 3 year warranty, – Bootable
Cons: – Can only be used with Windows 7, – Data must first be cached before you see the true performance
Conclusion: The benchmarks tell most of the story, but it's in the real world that the RevoDrive Hybrid best shows its potential. After a few days of use, our test platform is visibly nippy, with Windows booting quickly and applications loading almost instantly.
Conclusion: IMPORTANT: Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time.
Summary: OCZ’s RevoDrive Hybrid, their latest twist on the PCI-E SSD genre, is something that users without SATA III supporting hardware may give serious consideration to, but those that have more modern boards have more compelling options to choose from.
Summary: So then, the RevoDrive Hybrid is a promising technology. You do need to be aware of the upsides and the one downside of it. Let's deal with that first, the overall initial write performance (1st write to HDD) is not what I had hoped to be and that could be a rather significant factor for many of...
Conclusion: The idea of a hybrid storage solution that combines the capacity of a traditional hard drive with SSD performance isn’t anything new but it has evolved quite rapidly in a short amount of time.
