fast hard drive

 

if there is any drive faster i would li,e to know about it

this is the fastest drive i have ever owned ; win 7 o performanceus 7.9 does/t get any BETTER ; reliability is excellent

pricey

NOT COMPATABLE

 

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?

None yet ~ it's not compatable with my mobo

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...

just how i hoped it would be

 

just make sure if you use it for a boot drive that you get the drivers on the ocz website wile installing windows its easy to do

This is a really good produst i read the reviews and was worried about its preformance and reliability, however i have had no issues it is amazingly fast it reads as a raid 0 and i dident have to make any modifacations in the bios or the raid it works...

Failed twice so far

 

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

It works fine, for a while

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...

Consumer review by:

SO FAST

 

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

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...

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

Consumer review by:

Super Fast

 

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

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

None

Fast

 

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.

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

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

OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX-1RVD0080 PCI-Express x4 80GB PCI Express MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

 

If you are considering this product you should be aware of the following facts: 1. OCZ provides support through forums, there isn't a ticket system or other means to get support. 2. The device uses fakeraid RAID 0 to make a single ~ 80GB volume out of...

It's promised to be fast ; It didn't cost a fortune ; It's promised to be bootable

It can't be written-to in an IBM x3655 running linux kernel 2.6.35. I thought the primary hurdle would be booting from it but there are much more fundamental problems. The kernel barfs when it tries to write partition information to the RAID 0 device....

Look b4 you Leap!

 

I see alot of compliants about these, whether it's DOA or incompatibilities. People just see the "read/write" speeds and go "oh wow, I want that", not realizing it's RAID yielding those speeds and two Sata SSD's would give the same results. I have two...

Well, that depends. You people realize it's so fast because it's RAID 0, you can just purchase two Intel 40gb SSD's and RAID them and get the same "read speeds", the write speeds will be slower, but PC's read more than they write. So, before you get to...

If one drive on this Revo drive dies, that's it.. SSD card is dead. Open and exposed SSD memory makes it more likely to get static shocks, thus killing it. Atleast with two Sata SSD drive in RAID 0, if one dies, you still have one drive to work with....

Not worth it

 

I went back and forth with MSI and OCZ about trying to get this to work properly and neither could help me get it running properly. I contacted both compaines before ordering the products and both said that they would work together. After posting...

Nothing

I went through so much trying to get this to work properly and never could get it. I had to flash an older bios onto my motherboard, plug it into the bottom pci express slot, make a custom slip stream install, 64 bit drivers would not work only the 32...
