Cherry picking... not the fastest here:

Also note that SF controllers lose performance with incomrpessible data.

he model as tested today is a nice performing product, not a top performing one though.

IMO, I would avoid the RevoDrive, they can be a pain to deal with. Not all mother boards can boot from a PCI-E card, and if yours can't, it's no good for an OS drive. This drive is dependent on a special driver provided by OCZ that is the interface between the drive's PCI-E interface and the Windows file system, no other driver of that type exists. This RevoDrive is actually two 120GB "drives" in a RAID 0 configuration. OCZ claims TRIM is supported, which seems a miracle given all the layers of software involved. This drive has two SandForce controllers, one for each 120GB drive. User reviews tend to be either it's great or terrible. With the new SATA Express standard for PCI-E SSDs coming in a year or so, drives like the Revo will be very obsolete. Two 840 Pro's in RAID 0 would be a much better choice than a Revo.

Those are last generation SSDs.

That is true, the SF-2281 is one of the first SATA III SSD controllers. What is interesting is the PCMark Vantage test graph that was posted (thanks Igor) on page three, the highest scoring last generation SSD is the Intel 520. The scaling used in that graph is very exaggerated and gives a false impression about relative performance. The difference in the score between the 240GB 520 and the top drive, a 1TB 840 Evo, is a little over 5%. The "slowest" SSD in that graph, is less than 10% lower in its score than the top SSD.

And I would like to add that their speeds aren't that great for the price you're paying. You're paying extra for essentially a RAID card with built-in SSDs that can be finicky when it comes to drivers. Kingston, I believe, is releasing an mSATA uber-RAID plug-and-play (no drivers other than the Windows default). It's something like 1TB with up to eight 128GB mSATA SSDs that can be swapped out. Expensive I'm sure, but if you really need 2.5GB/s... Just whatever you do, stay away from the ASUS RoG RAIDR. It's three times the price and only 30% faster than an equivalent 840 Pro. At least the RevoDrives have the decency to be twice as fast. I'm sure that there will be PCIe to SATA express cards released as soon as the standard is finalized and the first drives hit the market for a much more reasonable price.
