    i am thinking of getting a revodrive instead of a ssd drive,

    i am running a INTEL DP55WG motherboard

    does anyone know if the revodrive will operate on it please

    as in compatibility etc

    regards

    It should work fine on that board, though the lack of the TRIM command on the RevoDrive is a major cause for concern. I'd recommend either going for a Crucial C300 or OCZ Vertex 2E instead, as they have the TRIM command and are much better value for money (in my opinion).

        Vertex 2E - the write speeds will be of more benefit than the extra read speed, which is already extremely fast on the Vertex.

            I personally disagree with Terb, if you are using the SSD as an OS boot/app drive. I've found that the extra write speed isn't that useful (to me at least), whereas the C300 provided a noticeable improvement in boot speeds and application launches over my Corsair P64. The P64 has significantly better write speeds. However, it's up to you to have a look through reviews and come to your own opinion.

            TRIM is a command that Windows 7 and some of the latest distros of Linux can issue to a drive, to reduce an SSD's performance loss with heavy use. It basically helps to maintain the quoted read and write speeds of a drive, which otherwise drop as you use all the flash cells.

              The P64 weren't the best drives to begin with anyway, no wonder you seen an increase
