Expecially fast with bulk data imports and large file downloads.

They weren't able to tell me for sure whether it would work but that it would "probably" work.

I waffled between a 2.5 SATA SSD and this for a while when considering upgrading my machines. I briefly considered upping the game on Velociraptors, but eventually I came to the simple conclusion that a PCI-Express SSD is currently the best upgrade you can do for your computer.

Technology is outstripping user capabilities. Unless you're crunching massive files of one kind or another, more processing power in your CPU, video card, or RAM isn't going to help you see an increase in speed. What WILL see an increase in speed - the right hard drive. Getting the fastest hard drive read/write capabilities simply means the computer's going to crunch those numbers that much faster.

Except one small thing - SATA still bottlenecks speeds. I know, the concept of "bottleneck" when it comes to how much data can get shoved through the pipe is vastly beyond anything from two years ago, but the speed of data transfer is still the key ingredient.

Hard drives don't often have a direct connection to the motherboard, but that's why a PCI-Express card is a brilliant form factor. Considering that I've got my seven SATA slots maxed with DVD drives and hard drives, adding another hard drive was going to require upgrading one drive over another.

The issue really boils down to interface and speed. Yep, a 2.5 SSD drive is going to knock the socks off your old 7200RPM drive when it comes to speed, but at the same time, it still uses the same SATA cables. Even a SATA III cable isn't going to provide the same speed of interface that a PCI-Express SSD would - the interface jacks directly into the motherboard connections. And therein lies the price difference.

For comparison's sake, I originally looked at this and a comparable 2.

You want fast, its blazing fast, I love this drive, windows7 boots in 7 or 8 seconds after the bios. Photoshop pops open in a blink of an eye.

Another reviewer stated it was difficult to install and you had to mess with the bios to get it to work.

Its is not difficult at all and what ever issues he may have experianced is likely unique to his system.

Its not plug and play only in the fact that the hardware is newer then the operating system and you have to load drivers during windows installation. Thats the case with any new technoligy.

The only bios setting that needs to be changed is you do have to set the boot order of the drives in the bios if you plan on having more then a single drive, this too is to be expected by default PC's most are set to boot to the onboard drive controller first. There is no other configurations that need to change to acomidate for this drive.

Once you have the bios boot order set proper and boot the windows install dvd loading the drivers for the device it will install just like any other hard drive only way way way way faster.

Its an expensive piece of hardware, and you should have some idea as to what you are doing if you are willing to invest in bleeding edge technoligy, but it is not rocket science and its not difficult and it is nothing short of OMG fast.

The drive works great with Windows 7. I did have some issues with Ubuntu. Start up times are really fast.
The only big drawback is the price, I waited for Amazon to drop the price, but never happened and still priced well above the $[...] MSRP.
So I bought from Newegg and after the [...] and free shipping my total cost was $[...]
Do your homework before buying this product. Its an excellent product, but make sure your Motherboard will support it and you have a free PCI slot for it. NOTE: It will not work properly in a 1x slot, and read the OCZ Revodrive specs carefully.

If you work with CS5 it will load up lighting fast.

I'm using this for win 7 64 bit. I have a ausus motherboad m3a78-em running an amd quad core.
First thing you have to do if you want to use it as your boot drive is load the drivers and a flash drive or burn a dvd with the drivers from their web site.
I did that and it didn't work. Then I read on some message boards and tried the following and it was able to install win 7 on my new drive.
1. I updated my bios on my motherboard. (This probably did the trick, my bios was from 2008).
2. Removed all sata cables for other Hard drives.
3. When the motherboard booted up, there's a raid controler screen where I deleted the existing partion, or erased it and re-created.

It was probably just the Bios update that did it though. It's not that hard to do, go to the asus website and find the drive, put it on a flash drive and do it on motherboard setup mode.

It's sort of a pain to do all this, but it's the only way a PCI express card is gonna work. And it pays off with the speed you get.

The other thing you need to know is this is a PCI-Expres 4 slot. I had to take my 2nd video card out, because I didn't have another other pci-e x4 slots. I had an extra x2 slot, but not x4-x16. It will work on x4, x8 or x16. I really wasn't using the extra video card, so no big deal for me. Many motherboards don't have an extra x4+ slot though.

as for my disk speeds. Win 7 performance test gives it a 7.9/7.9.
There are many different tests so who knows what's correct, but what I got on a bench mark:
Sequential Read: 452.3 MBytes/Sec
Sequential Write: 147.4
Random Seek + RW: 407.7

On a real test by diskbench:
Read File: Depended on the file, but some i got a range up to 760MB/s
Create File Batch: about 150MB/s
Create File; about 162MB/s
Copy File: 380MB/s
