1TB Revo Drive Hybrid drops to $159.99

OCZ is slashing prices on its 1TB Revo Drive Hybrid, and Amazon is the first retailer to go live with the new pricing. Amazon is listing the drive at $159.99 versus an MSRP of $495.00. The previous low for the drive was $199 a little over a week ago.
 
The Revo Drive Hybrid features a PCI-E interface and combines 128GB of MLC flash with a 1TB HDD. It offers read speeds of up to 910 MB/sec and write speeds of up to 810 MB/sec.

 
Tiger Direct and Newegg are expected to match Amazon's pricing within the next few hours if you have a preference for those retailers.

You can read a review of the drive from Hot Hardware.

OCZ hasn't made a good product since they last produced RAM. I have an older rig still running 4gb (4 x 1gb) of OCZ DDR2 RAM. Bought it in 07 and it is still running good. They should have stuck with what they were good with.

That's funny, people most RAM failures I had were OCZ sticks, especially their low latency DDR2-6400 (800mhz) "silver" and gold" sticks. They always needed a voltage bump to run the rated latencies, which is probably what shortened their life.

The only OCZ product I've had that worked and stayed working was the Equalizer Mouse, and eventually the thumbpad came off and started giving me a blister, but at least it didn't die like every other one of their products I've had.

Anand Shimpi was right. A long time ago, he interviewed the OCZ CEO who said he was going in full-force to the SSD market and wanted to 'own' it. Anand said that's great, but gave him one word of advice...to DITCH the OCZ name. This discussion was back in 2008-2009, and OCZ has definately kept their old reputation of 'quality' going.
