4 out of 5 eggsworks on a Dell Inspiron 8600

Pros: I replaced my laptop's internal HDD with this CF and the laptop runs winXP Pro using FAT32 format fine.

This CF drive runs on the laptop using UDMA 5 and is bootable, to run winXP.

I installed the CF into a SYBA SY-IDE2CF-NB25 adapter plus a Dell 8267R IDE Interposer Board/Connector to install the IDE adapter card into the laptop's IDE socket.

I turned off System Restore and set the Virtual Page File size to 0MB. I use Hibernation to bring down the system and for speeding up the power up boot.

HDTach 3.0.4.0 tests :
CF HDD Mode
75.4 87.5 MB/S Rd Burst
60.7 30.6 MB/S Rd Ave
.7 14.7 mS Random Access
HP Speed 1.6.1.81 tests :
CF HDD Mode
54-71.2 36 MB/S Rd
69.1 83 MB/S Rd Burst
33.3 27 MB/S Wr
21.2 45-60 MB/S Wr Burs

Cons: I love the CF drive. The only reason I'm listing cons is to be thorough about using a CF drive as the OS boot drive.

An internal winXP CF is NOT the place to install major updates (eg. Windows Updates) because it takes too long and appears to slow down the CF performance. I use a HDD to install major updates, image it, then restore the image to the CF to prevent this slow down.

I also ran into performance issues after installing the OS onto the CF, when it was NTFS, then using Partition Magic to convert the OS partition to FAT32. I stopped the partition conversion after the first few hours to prevent damaging or wearing out of the CF drive. Using a HDD and getting a FAT32 OS image to restore on the CF worked cleanly as an alternative.

The CF performance when I used it in NTFS format was also slower than desired (plus the winXP NTFS journaling writes would be undesirable on a CF).

5 out of 5 eggsWorks in an iPod Video 5G

Pros: Fast, Boots in the iPod 5G (using Tarkam's adapter).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I had originally gotten the card for a 4G iPod, to replace a dead 20g hard drive. The card worked fine, but the cheap adapter was a dud. Picked up the 5G Video a few days later and am pleased with the outcome.

2 out of 5 eggsHolds up with my 7D video, however...

Pros: Cheap, shoots long videos on my 7D. Cheap.

Cons: Well I plugged it into my sony card reader. Nothing happens. I have had a hard time importing. Connecting to the camera is working but it is fussy with what programs will recognize it. Sometimes its Aperture, sometimes iphoto, sometimes image capture. I like the card if it would work, but I dont know if I can trust it.

1 out of 5 eggsnot bootalbe

Pros: None that I can think of, I can't use it, yet.

Cons: I purchased this card because of the nice stats and speed for its price. It looked like just the thing to speed up the boot time on my old iBook. I purchased an IDE to CF adapter and this flash card. The IDE to CF adapter works great, but this card is apparently not bootable. There is a 'fixed disk' and 'removable disk' setting hard coded to the card. Many competitors card can function as either, depending on the device they are plugged into. Others require a simple utility ran to switch the setting. This card seems to offer neither.

Other Thoughts: I'm attempting to contact with http://www.wintecind.com/support/index.htm to see if such a utility can be supplied to me. I will report back with my findings here. If they can't supply me with such a utility, I will be returning the card and purchasing another brand.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good cheap alternative

Pros: super cheap compared to the other companies.
tested in a 7D and expresscard reader.
using hdtune i found no errors, here are some statistics:
Read transfer rate
Transfer Rate Minimum : 64.2 MB/s
Transfer Rate Maximum : 72.1 MB/s
Transfer Rate Average : 69.6 MB/s
Access Time : 0.5 ms
Burst Rate : 53.4 MB/s
CPU Usage : -1.0%

Write transfer rate
Transfer Rate Minimum : 14.7 MB/s
Transfer Rate Maximum : 37.1 MB/s
Transfer Rate Average : 25.4 MB/s
Access Time : 0.5 ms
Burst Rate : 57.1 MB/s

that minimum was just a spike, i'd say the recurring minimum was more like 17MB/s

Cons: none so far, but will update this the moment i have any.
