OCZ's Brilliant Deal: Get the 1GB/s, Ultra-Fast 240GB RevoDrive 3 SSD for Mere $212
8/21/2012 by: Theo Valich
With all the buyout rumors coming in waves day by day, there's no doubt that you can get excellent deals on OCZ parts. The company discounted over 90% of its lineup, and some of these deals are not to be missed.
In our conversations with other SSD vendors, we heard quite a lot of worried chatter with the pricing war reaching unobtainable levels, but the strategy of buying market share can pay off if done right. With OCZ voting another five million shares in executive compensation, with even some former employees receiving stock as a "thank you" note, we decided to look and see just how good those deals are. It took us a total of five minutes to find what might be the best deal for any person wishing to get incredible amount of performance for your desktop, workstation, server…
The company discounted a 240GB RevoDrive 3 from $499.00 to only $249.99, with an additional discount of 15% should you apply AUG15REVO code during checkout, bringing a total down to $212.49.
Besides getting 240GB of storage for less than $1/GB, the performance of this PCI Express card easily beats any SATA-based SSD up to 2x, thanks to OCZ's proprietary VCA 2.0 design (Virtualized Controller Architecture), which pairs two LSI SandForce SF-2281 Flash controllers with a PLX PCIe controller. End result is declared bandwidth of 1000MB/s for read, 900MB/s for write.
This deal is a one hard to miss.
