OCZ RevoDrive 

Released February, 2010
  • 480 GB
  • PCI-E PCI-Express
6.2 Out of 10

With the over provisioning and DuraClass technology, the Sandforce controller does a nice job of maintaining performance over time.

The benchmarks clearly show that the RevoDrive is a seriously fast SSD and as well it should be with dual Sandforce SF-1200 controllers and a RAID 0 configuration.

Reviews Word on the street for the OCZ RevoDrive


9.0
While it may be more expensive than either a single 120GB Vertex 2 drive or even a pair of 64GB ones, its somehow not quite as expensive as you might think given the technology it uses on that PCB.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Interface

As implied, this isn't their first PCI-E drive but it is the first that carries a price tag that rivals that of the more traditional SATA port based SSDs.

While we are on the subject of installation, you can use any available PCI-E slot except for the x1 slot and it is as simple as popping it in the slot and securing it with a single screw just like any other PCI-E device.
by Legit Reviews (Jul, 2010)
Rumor has it that OCZ may be developing a TRIM tool specifically for their PCI-E based RAID drives; although, when that might be is anyone's guess.

Price

At an MSRP of $349 for the 120GB version, they aren't what you would consider inexpensive for storage devices in general, but considering the performance, hardware onboard and pricing of similar capacity SSDs, the price point is rather impressive.

For the price then you get a mighty fast drive that wont clog up any SATA ports.
