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.

Well now careful with that statement.
Seagate DID after all buy Maxtor.

From my personal experience - my agility has ALWAYS been quirky and I am considering an RMA as lately.

like it or not the ocz drives are either great or full of problems - but if you buy an intel or a crucial there is no black marked track record. Many people never have a problem with ocz - but their number of failures and firmware bombs do not compare to top tier ssd competition. They make a drive that's fast, cheap, and "generally" ok for most people.

This particular drive is something I had been pitching for years. Whether or not it's perfectly executed I think it's great that it even exists and I would love to see it more common place. It's not perfect by needing to be a boot drive - but the logistics of what gets written to ssd and what to disk really is a difficult controller to program. It needs to be predictive and analyze live data where hard drives mostly wrote more raw in the past.
