Solid State Drives are the way forward, we all know that and for many reasons. They are VERY fast and operate with a silent operation, as well as being smaller and having a longer life expectancy and these are only the main points to having a solid...

The RevoDrive Hybrid is a unique product which is difficult to compare. At its present market price it is a very nice deal just looking at the hardware specifications alone. The 1TB enterprise HDD provides the benefit of drive size, and the...

It's fun to come up with new pairings of technology. We've seen SSD storage before, we've even seen the use of system RAM as a storage device, but what happens when you marry an SSD and platter drive? The Hybrid is born. The OCZ Hybrid...

Assessing the technologies and products readily available at the time of this review, the RevoDrive Hybrid appears to be the perfect marriage of a mechanical HDD drive with a large SSD cache. The RevoDrive Hybrid eliminates the limitations currently...

When it comes to pure performance once your data is cached the RevoDrive Hybrid is one of the fastest drives that we have tested to date! The only drive that even came close was OCZ’s own RevoDrive 3. With speeds of just under 1GB/s read and...

There's an adage about complexity; the more complex something is the more that can go wrong. While this is not necessarily true in this case, we would be negligent if we declined to mention that we did run into one such issue ourselves. During...

The performance of the OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid speaks for itself as it closes the gap between hybrid solutions and true solid state drives, traditional hard drives don’t even enter this equation. The overall transfer speeds, as well as the all...

After the very successful RevoDrive series and the recent Synapse series of cache SSDs it was really a matter of time before OCZ used both technologies in a single drive but is the RevoDrive Hybrid really the next step? Well the answer is...

As we've said before and we'll continue to hammer any chance we can get, the single biggest bottleneck in modern systems is the traditional plattered hard drive, and using an SSD in your system will make such a massive difference that you'll...

The idea of a hybrid storage solution that combines the capacity of a traditional hard drive with SSD performance isn’t anything new but it has evolved quite rapidly in a short amount of time. We have seen some primitive yet functional solutions...

I don't think we are very far away from a time when all new personal computers ship with some form of cache system installed at the factory. Just a few days ago I saw a Youtube video of a motherboard still in the 3D modeling stages with a SandForce...

We've said it before, but we'll say it again; we love solid-state drives (SSDs). The combination of near-instant access, blazing performance, practically-silent operation and low power consumption is almost too good to be true, and we're now...

The OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid's performance is difficult to characterize. On some levels, the RevoDrive Hybrid offers exceptional performance, as we saw in the ATTO benchmark. Although not part of any specific benchmark, the RevoDrive Hybrid also...

If you're tempted to buy a PCI Express-based SSD and add your own conventional storage, OCZ's RevoDrive Hybrid could might suit you. A 120 GB SSD and 1 TB of disk space come together on a four-lane PCIe card to serve up an advanced caching...
