Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Speed

Speed:
"This drive is very fast, but it does have its drawbacks."
_
"It takes a fair load to make this perform at it's rated speeds but no complaints."
_
"So if anyone gets this problem it could be that the slot you are using is keeping the card from performing like it should."
_
"Not fully compatible with all motherboards at optimized transfer speed of 1GB."
_
"The performance is the one that did not get me to happy...Small update based on Jeremiah his comment I did test with Atto and it came out better, It still in some tests that I did @ work with SQL and a automation app it did not really beat the 520 but I also found out that was the apps it limitation."
_
"Performance is excellent, but the cost is quite high."
_
"Don't get me wrong this thing is fast but the result from my benchmark will shock you, and I don't think anyone who bought this product on amazon has ran a benchmark.... so I'll be the first to report this."
_
"If I'm doing something wrong with this SSD then someone please tell me, but I don't think I am cause I updated the firmware on the SSD before I installed windows 7 and it runs the OS perfectly fine, but it gives me this speed for this PRICE?"
_
"If OCZ would invest just a tiny bit of money in quality control on these drives, there would be no question in giving 5 stars - but only getting 1 day of outstanding performance from a product that all corners have clearly been cut is not enough."
_
"It does not get the speeds advertised HDTUNE max performance on the drive with random operations was 667MB s this is short from the 900 and 1000 MB s in the spec tried a lot of bench marks but that was the highest in any test, my intel 520 SATA 3 ssd beats it in some tests and is in general with 480 MB s not far off, so I am disappointed about the performance of the drive."

Windows

Windows:
"If something goes wrong, you will have to reinstall windows from scratch."
_
"This Hard Drive is useless, there is no support for Windows 8, no drivers for an operating system that had been more than 1 year in the market."
_
"I installed Windows 8 with no major problems but after running some different benchmark programs discovered that my other 3 SSD drives (Intel 335, Sandisk Extreme, and Kingston Hyper X 3k) were faster or equal to this one."
_
"If I'm doing something wrong with this SSD then someone please tell me, but I don't think I am cause I updated the firmware on the SSD before I installed windows 7 and it runs the OS perfectly fine, but it gives me this speed for this PRICE?"
_
"I verified my install went well, updated windows, installed all of my most used apps, etc...Shut down my PC and plugged in all of my SATA drives...Amazingly I didn't have to reconfigure the boot priority in my BIOS after plugging in 3 HDDs and 2 SSDs."
_
"When I installed Windows 8 from a USB thumb drive, I was able to load the drivers from the CD included with the Revodrive just fine, and it would apparently install Windows without a hitch."
_
"i had no problems installing and using it with Windows 8"
_
"I inserted a USB Thumb Drive with the Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 installer, selected the drive in the boot menu, and was able to successfully start the Windows setup."
