1 out of 5 eggs Not worth the try even at current price 07/25/2013

This review is from: OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX-1RVD0110 PCI-E 110GB 4 x PCI-Express MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros:

None. I was never able to get it to work anyway.

Cons:

The Sil3124 chip on this card is ancient and will not work in Windows 8 (at least mine couldn't). Mine doesn't work on even Windows 7 after loading the driver properly. I actually setup windows on my hard drive and installed driver there - Windows couldn't even see the drive available in diskmgmt.msc. Firmware update boot disk does not even boot on newer motherboard. Plugged into a same-era-as-the-card P55 board and still not working anyway. I can see the RAID BIOS at boot up so the card should be good. Anyway, I tried everything I could think of and now in the process of RMA with OCZ.

Other Thoughts:

If they used one of those Marvell chip (or better LSI/3Ware chips) it would have lasted years more - driver support wise. In this date 2013, the card design is outdated - you can get SATAIII drives with comparable speed at comparable price. I am a very experienced builder (since 1993) and this one card is the most frustrating piece of hardware I've ever had - even more fustrating than setting up MPEG card back in the 1990s which uses custom DMA channel and IRQs.

Do not get this, even if the price is less than a Benjaman. Doesn't worth a dime in this age. The issue can't be fixed because OCZ does not manufacture and cannot support the RAID chip - which is what giving us all the trouble. Silicon Image discontinued the chip a long time ago (It's targetted for PCI-X to SATA, if you know what PCI-eXtended is. Not PCI-E), so no luck here. I hope OCZ will either refund me or give me a SATAIII drive. If not, I will put some hot lead through the board.
