This review is from: Koutech IO-ASS112 mSATA SSD to 1.8" SATA Drive Converter
Pros: able to buy it on Newegg, which makes me feel much more comfortable than buying it from other online stores
Other Thoughts: I want to replace the regular 1.8" disk on my ThinkPad X301 with an SSD. Evidently the choice of using this adapter with a 240/256 GB mSATA (such as Crucial M4 or Intel's 525) costs so much less than a 1.8" retail SSD, that is if I can still find a good brand 1.8" SSD of that capacity today.
My only concern is whether using this mSATA+adapter arrangement will prevent the laptop from properly identifying the unit as an SSD. If the Win7 running on my X301 doesn't see it as an SSD, it will not issue TRIM command to clean up the deleted cells, then my laptop will be perfect for only a short period then start slowing down and/or hanging on input. I guess the answer lies on the wiring scheme between the adapter's SATA and PCIe interfaces. Unfortunately the product specs doesn't have clarification on this.
I hope some of my fellow egg buyers can provide valuable comments to address my concern. Thanks.
