Default OCZ Revo 120GB PCI Express SSD Performance Preview

SSD's are not considered to be "affordable" by many, and that's especially true when talking about PCI Express versions. But, that's soon to change, with the launch of OCZ's Revo - a drive that barely charges a premium over current high-end SSD's. While we iron out the details for our full review, we offer you this quick performance preview.

You can take a look at Robert's quick look at the Revo here and discuss it here!

So am I

It might take a couple of weeks though, because we're needing to receive a replacement unit. There's a bug in the current version that can't be fixed with a firmware update it seems, but the replacement won't change the performance at all. So, once we receive this replacement, it shouldn't take too long before the final article is posted.

Waiting for it. I'm definitely looking for an affordable ssd solution. And a pci-e based card is much better than a sata based solution.
