    Yup. I bought a OCZ Eevo Hybris and you cannot use it on different system. Well you can but the Dataplex code needs to be reverified by OCZ and I do not have the time everythine I put up a new board. OCZ was bbice enough to take it back and send me a 240G Revo 3

    i thought it was another well known manufacturer that distributed the reverified hubris drive, but i could be mistaken

    the Crucial Adrenaline cache system, along with OCZ's own dataplex option are looking to be winners when one wants to keep their TB spinners but get ssd like performance...

    Why on earth are they (revo's) mated to your board?
    That's a good reason to shun them.

    That's like Intel's Caching Solution. You should read the forums on their (Crucial & OCZ) support site before you buy into that. When I did there was a lot of discontent, but maybe it's all better by now.

    It is called Bandwidth, PCIE is faster than your Sata port. Read/write and iops are faster.

    true, but you also run into controller tunneling issues regarding small file/os caching/driver development, and resultant latency. while you get great sequentials from present pci-e based storage options, you will notice a difference when running from quality high bandwidth native sata ports, and this extends to previous sataII chipsets.

    FIRST: What ^he^ said.

    I'm not asking about throughput.

    You said that "the Dataplex code needs to be reverified by OCZ" before you can use it on a new board?

    That's a PITA and why is this so?
    Is there a good reason for this?

    I could care less about it's performance if you have to phone home to put it into a new PC.
    SATA-III SSD drives are getting faster all of the time too. Use two of them in RAID and you get some wicked fast results. Trim support for SSD RAID is not far away anymore either.

    looks like he posted the revo 3 results, not the hybrid? the caching software ties usually to your os instal. not sure why a purported hardware option(?) would need this, but if you are using any software (re dataplex, etc.), you would assume it would be to prevent using the software on other systems/drives.

    The caching software does depend on the OS to work properly. And that's a speed bump as I see it. A lot of software/processing things have to happen to make it all work properly.
    I would prefer a drive with a 240GB SSD integrated within a 2TB platter drive that doesn't depend on software to keep it all together. A hardware solution please,......

    Let it do RAID too while I'm wishing my life away.

    I have a 500GB Seagate Momentus Hybrid drive now, but the SSD portion is only 4GB in size, and the platter is a 5,400RPM drive.
    It's a great idea that was never aggressively developed by Seagate. They have it patented, so nobody else is working it yet. That's a shame.

    Also, there is a company that will sell you software to cache any SSD within your system, but it's expensive and patented. They're agressive about protecting it. They provide it to OCZ.

    neil, the dataplex software that has been utilized by crucial and ocz should handle raided hdd up to two tb in size. it ties to your os install, but you can uninstall it so you can again reinstall to another install. i have an upcoming review of the crucial option. again, neil, jimmy posted a revo x3 pci-e card's results, not the hybrid.
