OCZ RevoDrive 120GB PCIe SSD Review

From the moment they entered the SSD market OCZ were one of the major players, known for their higher performance products and excellent customer support. From working closely with controller manufacturers to deliver optimised and prompt firmware updates to pushing existing architectures a step further than their competition OCZ have continually tried to advance their products and the market itself. A perfect example of this is their Z-Drive which we first saw at CeBIT 2009. The Z-Drive took four SSD’s, put them on one PCB and had that connect to a system through the PCIe bus, ensuring speeds were well in excess of those possible on SATA 2, the main storage interface at that time. Of course the Z-Drive had a high cost attached to it, 4 SSD’s totalling 1TB of storage plus the various controllers and PCB don’t come cheap.

As with many high end products such as the Z-Drive they inspire cheaper alternatives which are more appealing and affordable to the average user. Today’s review product is the more consumer friendly evolution of the Z-Drive; the RevoDrive takes the idea of SSDs built on a PCB, combined in RAID and connected to the system via PCIe at a more affordable price.

We will be putting the RevoDrive up against one of the top performing SSDs on the market, Crucial’s SATA 6GB/s based C300 256GB to find out how the two compare in a selection of synthetic and real world tests. By the end of the review you will know exactly how OCZ’s latest product will affect your daily PC use and productivity.
