The ultimate storage solution is here. OCZ RevoDrive 3 PCI-Express Solid State Drives were designed with power users and workstation users in mind where storage I/O performance is essential for maximum productivity. Eliminating the SATA bottleneck, the PCIe-based Revo3 delivers ground-breaking 1GB/s of bandwidth and 130,000 4KB random write IOPS making this an ideal SSD for intensive multithreaded workloads, multimedia design, and workstation applications.

Along with unprecedented performance, the RevoDrive 3 features OCZ’s Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 which provides features including TRIM support and SMART data monitoring, something previously unheard of with PCIe solutions. In addition, the RevoDrive 3’s SuperScale storage accelerator enables scalable SSD performance and significantly reduces the host CPU burden inherent to competing PCIe storage offerings. The RevoDrive 3 series is a premium feature rich storage solution that delivers superior performance and reliability through innovative design.

  • newegg SINGLE HIGHEST PERFORMING SSD IN PROSUMER SPACE The RevoDrive 3 family gets its edge by employing a PCIe x4 Gen. 2 interface and two SandForce SF-2281 controllers in RAID 0 design to maximize data access and bandwidth. The result is up to three times faster performance than SATA 6Gbps solutions - up to 1000MBps read and 925 MBps write speeds, and incredible random write up to 130,000 IOPS (4KB Aligned) under HPC or workstation workload with a single card solution. The OCZ RevoDrive 3 can take full advantage of today’s multithreaded processors and software, and delivers an easy-to-deploy, OS bootable large storage capacity solution.
  • newegg OCZ VIRTUALIZED CONTROLLER ARCHITECTURE The RevoDrive 3 provides unique benefits to users by incorporating features from the VCA 2.0 flash virtualization software that allow certain direct memory access (DMA) and data management functions. Included in this feature-set are OCZ’s exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA also offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes.
  • newegg OCZ SUPERSCALE STORAGE ACCELERATOR The OCZ SuperScale storage controller combines processing and full DMA (direct memory access) cores, as well as internal PCIe, SATA, and SAS interfaces. This controller, combined with VCA 2.0, provides unique benefits to users by allowing certain DMA and data management functions including OCZ’s unique command queuing and queue balance algorithms to be handled by the onboard processing core, resulting in higher performance and reduced burden on the host CPU.

3 out of 5 eggsRefurb's are always a risk

Pros: Moderately priced, this hard-drive is good sized for the money, and it has fairly good read/write speeds as well. Refurbished components can be risky, but it the company stands behind their product with a good warranty, etc. you should be ok.

Cons: You'll need to install special OCZ drivers so your PC can see the drive before you can install your operating system. These drivers come on an installation disk that's included with the hard-drive, or you can download them from the OCZ website.

You'll also want to update the BIOS on this drive to the newest BIOS available from the OCZ website. It's a little tricky, because you have to update BIOS on this hard-drive using a special utility that you have to download from the OCZ website. Then you use the utility to update the hard-drive BIOS when your PC is running. So you actually update the hard-drive BIOS from within the operating system.

Other Thoughts: Once I downloaded the newest drivers and updated the BIOS on the hard-drive, this unit preformed as expected. It's a good unit for the money, however there is a similar product available from another manufacturer that requires no special drivers and actually performs a little faster. If you're a novice I suggest you consider these options. If you're experienced, you should be able to make out just fine with this unit once it's updated, etc.

2 out of 5 eggsFast but not reliable

Pros: It is fast. Faster than X2 I already have. Also very good price for a refurbished drive

Cons: Only worked flawlessly for a month. Now it disappears if I try to use it, with "The device, \Device\Harddisk3\DR3, is not ready for access yet." at event log

Other Thoughts: I use it to host VMWare Workstation guests. When it works, the guest reboot only takes seconds. Now if I try to start a VM guest, I will get an error before long and the drive simply disappears, until next PC reboot. I put a fan directly to the card so it's not a heat problem.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive super fast!

Pros: This thing is great! It's fast. It's large enough to install your system and not run out of space after loading a few apps or games. You can boot directly from the drive with no drivers needed for windows 8.1. Windows 7 needs drivers to install but is easy and fast to install. I bought a refurbished unit at a great price and am very happy with it. The next fastest drive costs 10 times the price of this and is only twice the speed.

Cons: No cons on this deal!

Other Thoughts: If you see another refurbished unit for sale here buy it! You will love it.
