RevoDrive Really Works Fast 07/05/2011
This is the best solution to fast read/writes I have found. Much faster than a single SATA3 SSD, but it should be with the built-in RAID striping. I run programs that do massive serial disk I/O followed by massive number crunching, and the RevoDrive can keep up with the program needs. I used to use SCSI audiovisual drives for their sustained I/O capacity but this PCI drive is much faster.
My wife saw the bill for this on my American Express so I had to explain why I needed it. I loved the RevoDrive so much she wandered off and stopped hassling me.
The drivers on the OCZ website do work and have all the pieces, but it took Windows XP several reboots to find everything. My software doesn't run under Win7. XP couldn't find the Silicon Image drivers for the RAID controllers on the card, but XP did eventually find them. Now the RevoDrive is rock-solid. I'll get a RevoDrive X2 shortly for an even faster SSD.
