    Review Summary:

    The OCZ RevoDrive 350 is an internal SSD that connects directly to your PC's PCI Express bus. Since it doesn't have the limitations of SATA, a storage device like this can deliver amazingly-fast transfer rates that rival a 4-drive RAID array.

    The OCZ RevoDrive 350 is an internal SSD that connects directly to your PC’s PCI Express bus.  Since it doesn’t have the limitations of SATA, a storage device like this can deliver amazingly-fast transfer rates that rival a 4-drive RAID array.

    OCZ also implments a Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) so that it is seen by the computer as a single drive.  Of course, the card’s controller handles wear-leveling so this storage device should last many years.  This drive is rated for 50GB a day for 3 years, so the average user should get a good 10 years out of this drive, if not more.

    The card also has an integrated heatsink to keep the card cool, and it has an aestetically-pleasing metal cover.
