4 out of 5 eggsExpensive

Pros: High quality
Doesn't weigh centillion (a big number with a lot of zeros) tons.

Master slave already defined. Allows for additional expandability.

Cons: Can only be used with not other devices if both slots are full and if full it will be to be on it's own cable.

Other Thoughts: Not buying again as it is very expensive.

3 out of 5 eggsStarTech 2.5" IDE to Dual Compact Flash (CF) Adapter

Pros: None yet

Cons: Device won't connect to standard IDE connection

Other Thoughts: If the above con note was made clear before I placed to purchase I would at least have been able to be ready with the accompanying purchase of an adapter. So I am now waiting on that to arrive as I could not find the adapter product I need in my city. Once it does arrive I look forward to setting a solid state hard drive. I will be disappointed if it turns out that this will be slower to boot from then the hard drive. I guess I should have known that 2.5" ide meant a completely different connector then the standard 40-pin EIDE line in most PCs.

4 out of 5 eggsSlow...but not that slow

Pros: layout is compact, in the shape of a hard drive. quality is better than the other i have, can't remember the other's brand though.

Cons: price of this and 2 cards is about the same as you can get a ssd for now.

Other Thoughts: You actually can set this up as one big drive if you use linux, by using software raid. This also allows writes to happen faster, since it can write to both cards in RAID 0.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks.

Pros: worked right out of the box. Put two sandisk extreme II 4 gb compact flash cards in and put it into a 1.5 ghz laptop with a pentium m chip. Found the drive without any problem. Loaded Ubuntu 9.06 on the first try. First card is now my boot drive, second is a storage drive.

Cons: each of the two cards is a separate drive. By nice to have the option to create one big drive. Documentation for the product was pretty skimpy too. Thank goodnessit appears to be as plug and play as they claim it is.
