    Thoughts on this SSD?

    OCZ RevoDrive RVDHY-FH-1T PCI-E 1TB Hybrid Solid State Drive PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227753

    Why would you not get one of these compared to a regular SSD? the read and write speeds are higher by roughly 2-300 MB/s and it's a full 1TB space compared to the 120gb u get from regular SSDs. This just seems overwhelmingly like the best choice. Am I missing something?

    Something that can be important for some users ... there are only drivers for Win7 32/64b.
