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.

Yep. I'm baffled why OCZ is still a major player and also have tech review sites like Anandtech in their back pockets. As long as there is good competition, I see no reason why anyone should buy OCZ.

Why would you look past Intel, Crucial, Kingston, Samsung and even Corsair, and then choose dodgy OCZ?

I see no reason to spend $159.00 on a hybrid product with a less than stellar track record.

For $85.00 I can get a Top Rated 120gb SSD from Crucial, Intel, or Samsung. Then add $75.00 get a 1.5TB hard drive with a good reliability rating.

This thread has deteriorated, fair or not, into a review of OCZ reliability, not specific to this actual product.

But the reason why one might want to buy this over a top rated 120gb SSD + a drive is that this is on the PCI bus and has twice the performance that a top 6gbs SATA drive can do.

Disappointing to read that it only works as a boot device. I'd consider it for a high performance scratch space at that price, but I don't want to reconfigure a system to try it out.
