Do you put your hard drives in some rough environments? Maybe you want to check out this solid state hard drive.

With no moving parts and no delicate head to bounce around, this little gadget is much tougher than a conventional hard drive, even one of the vibration-hardened drives for laptops. And it looks exactly like a standard IDE (ATA) drive to your computer, so there's need for a fancy new interface. Light weight, low power consumption, and high reliability (two million hours mean time between failures [MTBF]) make this drive perfect for surviving in a less than perfect world.

I can't recommend jumping out of planes without a parachute with this drive, but if you did, your data would be in better shape than you would be. Check it out and decide for yourself, but I think I want one for my laptop!

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Acting without any moving parts, the Samsung MCBOE32G8APR-0XA00 solid state drive (SSD) boasts multiple advanced features including zero mechanical noise, faster data rates compared to conventional HDDs, over 2-million-hour life span, ultra-low power consumption and impressive shock, vibration and extreme temperature resistance.

5 out of 5 eggs220.64% increase in average Read from stock HDD!

Pros: I purchased this product to replace my Sony Vaio X505's 1.8" HDD. The factory unit has a 20GB drive. I have two notebooks so I was able to do a side by side - clean install using the different drives. The difference is amazing. The read went from 15.5 MB/s to 49.7 MB/s, and it was a steady reading from 0-32 GB. The 32GB SSD drive is 220.64% faster then the 20GB drive! I couldn't ask for more!

Cons: Price. You pay more per MB then you would otherwise. Also, I had to remove the drive from the outer casing for it to fit in the notebook, but that wasn't a big deal.

Other Thoughts: This isn't the world's fastest drive by any means, but if you have a notebook with a 1.8" drive, and you have the money, you're nuts if you don't try this.

5 out of 5 eggsNew Life to an Old Laptop

Pros: Very fast. My laptop now boots in less than half the time it did before.
Low heat output. I used to have to have a fan to cool the laptio, but with the new SSD drive I no longer need the additional cooling.
Longer battery. Without having moving parts, the battery in my laptop last far longer than before.

Cons: Didn't fit snugly since my old drive was a 2.5", but not a big deal. I just cut some cork and now it stays in place.

Other Thoughts: If NewEgg has another sale on these, I'll probably buy a couple.

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth the price

Pros: Good for laptops and low power environments. Very responsive (low latency) disk access, as you'd expect form a SSD.

Cons: The price for starters. *Major* early adopter premium here.

Not sure where the hell people are getting "as fast as a 7200 RPM drive" or a "WD Raptor" from. No matter what cabling I tried I couldn't get any higher than udma2 in Linux, which seems correct. Sequential write/read speeds were ~20 MB/sec, which is pathetic compared to an IDE disk and a joke compared to a Raptor. This speed is mediocre at best.

I've had problems with this disk recently causing my system to freeze. These freezes required in-kernel soft resets and have occurred across multiple kernels (2.6.22 to .24) and new PSU/cable/connectors. I'm definitely not impressed for a $500+ disk that's only 32 GB; the low latency times don't justify the cost.

Doesn't come with a connector and required the purchase of two adapters to get it to work with a normal IDE cable. Seriously, for this price is it too much to ask to get the connectors?

Other Thoughts: Don't get this expecting a huge performance increase. If this truly obeys the udma2 spec, the max possible transfer rate is a paltry 33MB/s, where as a Raptor should easily do twice that. Fast USB sticks are comparable in speed.

Instead of wasting money on such an expensive product, purchase more RAM, WD Raptors (if you don't already have them), or if you have Vista, consider giving ReadyBoost a try. This is great if you need a low power disk for a laptop, especially one running Windows. If you're going to use this in an embedded environment I'd look elsewhere, ESPECIALLY if you'll be using Linux.

4 out of 5 eggsChange from 1,8" 4200rpm HDD is amazing

Pros: I recently changed my 60gb 4200rpm 1,82 hdd in my fujitsu q2010 for this drive. It was a perfect fit.
47mb sustained read, 30mb sustained write speed. acces time average 0.3ms
amazing boot, resume from standby, hibernate.
Office apps are lightning fast.
machine is altogether more responsive.
I have a 150gb raptor at home, overall I get a better feel from the raptor. Transfer speeds are faster. Boot and office is just not comparable...the ssd wins here without a doubt.

Cons: I bought an open box item for 313dollars, which is in my eyes appropriate. So yeah, the price is a con.

Other Thoughts: would buy again

5 out of 5 eggsLaptop runs like speed of light

Pros: Runs very fast makes laptop boot time 70% faster, and resume hibernation 50% faster.
Everything on the laptop now runs in a blink, Office, Outlook, IE, Quick Books, Adobe, etc. Click and it's open like lightning! Sustained file transfer speed is in fact faster then most laptop 7200rpm laptop drives, and the memory stick has a thousand times more operations per seconds it can perform. CPU usage went down to almost noghing all the time now. The CPU is no longer waiting around for a slow hard drive using up clock cycles.

Cons: No noicable effect on battery life.
Cant burst as fast as a raptor 150x drive, but has nearly same sustained speeds. When you load LARGE files in and out of ram orswap it's slow for about 1/2 a sec, then it just goes! This hapens rarely, usually only durring full boot up.

Other Thoughts: I run raid 0 of raptor 150x on my desktop, thisdrive is not as fast at many things, however for many things it is MUCH faster, like first time program load into ram it's instant, on pc i have to wait a few seconds, but not long.

5 out of 5 eggsDell Latitude X1 with 32GB SSD

Pros: Fast boot, running cool and completely silent

Cons: Under XP and Vista works at the Ultra DMA Mode 2.

Other Thoughts: Though the SSD specs says it supports Ultra DMA Mode 4, it shows the Mode 2. I think because of the write speed limitation (33 MB/sec). But it doesn't seem to affect the system performance. The system is still fast and responsive.

4 out of 5 eggsRunning it in a desktop

Pros: Consistent fast read times. I boot WinXP-64 in about 10-15 seconds.

Cons: Slower write times (like all SSD).
ATA-66
Small capacity.
Expensive.

Other Thoughts: IF you are putting this in a desktop (which is probably wise since it's $200 cheaper than the desktop version offered here), you need a 1.8" -> 2.5" adapter AND a 2.5" -> 3.5" adapter. The adapters are fragile so be careful. You'll also need to figure out where in the case to put it. I used electrical tape to strap it to a dead 3.5" drive.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: Replaced the 40G HD in my Sony Vaio PCG-TR3 subnotebook. Fit perfectly and the machine runs like its on steroids. Significant performance boost.

Cons: Not cheap but I'll get a couple more years out of the laptop.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended if you are looking to replace a 4200 RPM HD.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and fast

Pros: Installed the SSD in my Fuji P1610 and it works great. The fit was perfect, and was really easy to install. Boot times are 3x faster now, and it runs cool and quiet. I recommended this upgrade for users replacing a 1.8" drive in a sub-notebook.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsOverall, I'm very satisfied

Pros: This drive has added new life to my old handtop.

Cons: My computer wouldn't recognize the drive until I had reformatted it and it was a little thicker than the 1.8" drive I was replacing.

Other Thoughts: My OQO 01 only has 256 MB of soldered RAM, so replacing my HD with this gave me quicker access time to my swap file without, significantly improving performance, without the use of a soldering iron.
