OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 Max IOPS PCI-E 480GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RVD3MIX2-FHPX4-480G

Pros: Installing the RVD3MIX2-FHPX4-480G drive on windoews 2008 R2 SP1 was extremely easy. I used driver from OCZ site (I didn't use the driver that come on the CD with the drive) Machine config - I7-2700K at 4.5GHz (water cooled) Asuz P8Z 68-V Pro/Gen 32 GB DDR3 (1600 MHz) Bootable drive is OCZ Agility 3, 120GB Data drive - OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 Max IOPS RVD3MIX2-FHPX4-480G PCI-E 480GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OS - Windows 2008R2 SP1 Enterprise Edition Driver version downloded from OCZ site - ocz10xx-1.2.0.10490 I am using this drive as a fast data drive and NOT as bootable drive. There is practically nothing complicated I needed to do. just downloaded and unzipped drives files from OCZ site, ran the setup.exe that comes in the .ZIP file. It goes thru a 3-4 steps wizard. It just does this installation in less than 15 sec.

Cons: Very Expensive for a consumer class product

Overall Review: This drive is fast, but it is niche product. I already had corsair force3 and ocz agility 3, so didn't find breathtaking diff in speed. I'll update after some use again. If use have latest MOBOs, CPUs, and OC versions, the installation is really easy.
