The OCZ RevoDrive makes fast, faster with an innovative performance design that pushes the envelope in solid state technology and leaves hard drives in the dust. Moving beyond the bottleneck of the SATA interface, the RevoDrive features a PCIe interface to deliver superior performance. Designed for high-performance gaming PCs and workstations, the RevoDrive dominates thanks to the unique capability to run both Windows and your essential applications and games. With speeds up to 540MBps and 75,000 IOPS, this bootable PCI-Express SSD not only provides a more responsive PC experience, but promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. The RevoDrive can accommodate a wide range of computing environments such as video-editing and other multi-media creation and management, all while providing the superior durability and reliability of SSDs.

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSDs translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg Incredibly Fast Performance The RevoDrive family gets its edge by employing a PCIe x4 interface (1GB/s bandwidth as opposed to 3Gb/s of SATA II) and two SandForce-1200 controllers in RAID 0 design to maximize data access and bandwidth. Therefore the RevoDrive SSDs (50GB-80GB) feature up to 540 MB/s read & 450 MB/s write speeds, up to 350 MB/s sustained write speed, and incredible random write up to 70,000 IOPS (4KB Aligned).
  • newegg Bootable The OCZ RevoDrive is powered by the PCI-Express bus and OS bootable allowing for use as the primary boot drive and super-fast system startup. (Motherboard supporting boot over PCI-E is required.)

2 out of 5 eggsAnother OCZ Disappointment

Pros: -- Faster than platter-based HDDs

Cons: -- Very poor performance from an SSD
-- Small capacity
-- Very expensive
-- Takes a PCI-E slot

I bought the Revodrive for a friend's LGA2011 super-computer running a Core i7-3930K. After salivating over some AnandTech Revodrive reviews, I was expecting a MUCH better showing from this SSD.

CrystalDiskMark gave a completely different picture -- even my budget Mushkin Chronos Enhanced trounces the Revodrive. While I do not care *as much* about sequential read/writes, the Revodrive only managed about 55 MBps 4kb random writes. Not very good considering the price tag on this drive.

Other Thoughts: I've tried a few performance tweaks to get this thing running closer to spec. However, the CDM results did not improve, even with current 1.37 firmware and a SecureErase to reset the NAND. The lackluster results are below.

CrystalDiskMark - 5-Pass, 1000MB
(All figures in MBps)
Seq. R: 283.2 W: 104.6
512K R: 264.4 W: 105.0
4K R: 20.98 W: 60.04
4KQD32 R: 187.7 W: 87.27

Bottom line is -- if you want performance, just buy 2-3 120GB budget SSDs and put them in RAID 0. You'll get 2x the performance and 4x the capacity for the same price.

3 out of 5 eggsWas amazing while it worked.

Pros: The drive is very quick and worked well as my boot drive.. for a while.

Cons: A few months after getting the drive my computer started to crash. As one of the other reviewers has stated the drive has an internal raid. Like them, I too am having the issue with half the drive being faulty.

Other Thoughts: OCZ has always made good products and im hoping they have the kinks worked out. Ive opened an RMA with them and hope to have this all worked out shortly.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problem. Our staff will be happy to see that you receive a properly working replacement card. We will be with you shortly, and will work to get you running as quickly as possible. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsfaaaast

Pros: quick
reliable so far
free space for more 2TB hdds
makes your geek friends jealous

Cons: $$$
had to use beta bios to boot on it

Other Thoughts: Lastest ubuntu (11.04) linux doesn't see the drive without the hardware raid. Would have love to bench fakeraid VS software raid (software always faster in my experience)

1 out of 5 eggsNOT COMPATABLE

Pros: None yet ~ it's not compatable with my mobo

Cons: Did I mention that it isn't compatable with my mobo?
Apparently, after trying to find a fix ... I found a LOT of links to people that have discovered that the chipset on this card makes it compete with the onboard drive contollers (ie RAID) ... and in my case the PATA and SATA.
I can see them in my BIOS ... but the system keeps hanging and keeps looping back to the BIOS and/or telling me there is no compatable Hard Drive.

Other Thoughts: Wish I knew it wouldn't work before I bought it since it has a NO REFUND policy mark.
Now what?
I eat a $200 piece of DON'T WORK?

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we want every customer to be fully satisfied with their purchase. Please call our support manager at (408) 733-8400, ext 206, and we will be happy to work with you. Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsFailed twice so far

Pros: It works fine, for a while.

Cons: The first one failed within a week. OCZ would only do a direct replacement, although I wanted a different product. After shipping it back at my expense, I got my replacement. That worked for a couple months, but today I got the same failure. The card has an internal RAID, and half the drive failed (meaning the whole drive fails). I haven't heard back from them yet what they'll do about it - since I'm past 30 days, I'm worried they won't make it right. Even if they do, I've twice gone through the frustration of my primary HD failing... very frustrating from a very expensive SSD.

Other Thoughts: The #1 priority for a hard disk is reliability. This drive isn't reliable.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the difficulties you are having. Our support staff will be back with you shortly, and will work with you to resolve your issues. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsSO FAST

Pros: Super easy install, comes up as raid automatically. Works great with the ASUS Sabertooth x58, just load the drivers for it on a flash drive, you'll need it when you're installing windows 7.

7.9 Windows Experience Index
8 minutes to load windows 7 from a DVD
42 seconds to boot including bios

If you're worried about TRIM, image your machine. It hasn't been an issue and I have beaten this very hard.

Packaging is really nice.

Cons: I really wish it came with a case sticker that wasn't dumb.

Other Thoughts: I really love this, I researched drives for a while and I'm glad this is the end result.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Fast

Pros: Super Fast, got a good deal on it. Able to use as my boot drive with no problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I think my mobo takes longer to load the bios than it takes to load the OS now.

4 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: No issues booting to this drive on Gigabyte's GA-EX58-UD3R, the system recognized it immediately. Seems to be about twice as fast booting and starting programs, possibly faster.

Cons: My only problem was waking up from sleep states, it would blue screen constantly until I found a hotfix on Microsoft's website which resolved that issue.

Other Thoughts: Other than OCZ's forum there's very little info to be found on their website.
Usage limitations due to being PCI-Express x4 depending on motherboard and other add-on cards in system.
