OCZ RevoDrive X2 100GB PCI-E Solid State Drive Review

OCZ is no stranger to creating some of the fastest solid state drives available.  We know this from our reviews of the original RevoDrive and the Vertex 3 drive.  Today OCZ has sent us their X2 version of the RevoDrive, which is to be faster and available in larger capacities.  It boasts max speeds of 740MB/s read and 720MB/s write and capacities of up to 960GB.  If you are a person that always needs to have some of the fastest components available in your system then the RevoDrive X2 is for you.  Let’s see if it will become the fastest solid state drive we have tested to date!

Special thanks to OCZ for providing us with the RevoDrive X2 100GB PCI-E Solid State Drive to review.

Packaging
The packaging for the RevoDrive X2 looks almost exactly identical to the packaging for the original RevoDrive.  On the front there is a large RevoDrive logo and on the back there is some information about the drive and a sticker which shows you the capacity and specifications.

Opening the box up there is another one inside with the RevoDrive nicely packed inside of an antistatic bag.  If you take everything out you have the RevoDrive X2, a sticker that says “My SSD is Faster than your HDD” and an installation guide.

    Great review! You should update all 4 of the drives to the latest 1.32 Firmware via the instructions on OCZ’s forums. You will see performance increases across the board.
