"Just as with the original RevoDrive, the X2 version lives up to its reputation and delivers a massive boost of speed as a unique PCI Express hard drive platform. While the drive did have some issues with small file sizes, the overall transfer speeds were on par with the specifications that OCZ has designed the drive around. Some of the tests were almost dead on with the 700MB/s+ speeds, which are amazing for a single device setup. The ability to use the PCI Express BUS for transfers gives the RevoDrive X2 the edge. Installation was extremely simple — just install the drive, set the mode to AHCI and select the RevoDrive X2 as your boot device and away you go. Installing Windows 7 Professional 64-bit was a breeze with the high speeds of the drive, as were the startup and shutdown times, beating all other SSDs and mechanical drives I have ever tested."
