My System Specs

Default RevoDrive 3 240GB vs 2x 120gb SSD in Raid 0

Which one is faster? Do you suggest getting the RevoDrive at all? Any opinions appreciated. Thanks!

I'd get the Revodrive X2. PCI-E and no problems with Trim. And 1.5gbs max read!

I have the RevoDrive3 X2 480GB (the one which was reviewed here). I see over 500MB/s read/write in CrystalDiskMark with it under Windows 8.

Windows 8 thankfully didn't need any drivers for it, but it still does rape the boot time since it has it's own BIOS to initalize. Windows 7 does require drivers for it to show up though.

Likewise, I cannot install Windows with it plugged in, not sure why. No biggie though since I don't use it for my OS.

I suspect 2 SATA3 SSD's would be faster than it though. A single 256GB SSD should actually be sufficient too. They are faster than their 128GB counterparts.

Yup, same here - using a Revo 3 240Gb. If I'd do it over again, Raid 0 SSDs would get my choice.

So is this what you guys are saying?

RevoDrive 3 X2 > 2x 120gb SSD in Raid 0 > RevoDrive 3?
