Very nice specs, but the price is way too high. I just purchased two Samsung 250 gig EVO drives for $150.00 each. They are plenty fast enough for my purposes. But I can remember the days when they would have cost me as much as this RevoDrive.

[A bit on the pricey side, but the performance numbers are quite intoxicating. SSD tech cannot get cheaper fast enough, I tell you. I yearn for a day when large, affordable SSDs rule the world, and mechanical drives are a thing of the past]

I hope several key SSD players migrate to PCI-E SSD cards.

Going to PCIe drives seems preferable to that wonky SATA Express connector that was exhibited a while back.

Seems we are now in need of a new SATA Standard that can deliver at least 500GB/s

Doesn't anybody do original reporting of anything anymore?

Just Google: "RevoDrive 350" for the time of each article's posting

No. Just like how the word "exclusive" is abused in journalism to no end.

Just about every bit of tech news is reported on more than one website (usually many, many more). It would be a disservice to Maximum PC's readers if we skipped over relevant and interesting news items and product announcements just because another site in the vast web was first.

The web would suck if it worked that way, forcing me to hop all over the place for a daily outlook at what's happening in the tech (or sports or entertainment, etc) space.

I appreciate the aggregation Paul. Keep up the service! More views = more support for your web efforts.

It is an interesting bit of information and as I usually read here early each day I am glad you posted it.

Bullwinkle has always been a bit dim. Rocky would understand.

The majority of tech web sites are just landing grounds for press releases from corporate entities. Regurgitated information for the sake of page views and increased search result rankings.

Some places have gone even further with "sponsored content" which is pretty much marketing jargon masquerading as a favorable review or other more significant content. The web editors have to eat too.

Welcome to the internet of today.

You must be fun at parties. You seem like a fiery guy that is waaaaaaaayyyyyy to hopped up on multiple energy drinks and thus cannot have a delightful conversation with anybody without jumping down their throats the second they disagree with you. Go off caffeine for a week and come back to reality.

Having been burned multiple times by the first and second gen Revodrives, I hope they've worked all the kinks out

I have also been burned by the Revodrives. Maybe with the help of Toshiba they worked out the kinks but I am not willing to take the chance. I am going to stick with Samsung's EVO SSDs from now on.

What happened to you? Both of mine stopped recognizing the 2nd SSD on the built in RAID configuration.
