Perhaps one of the roughest, toughest hard drives we've seen, and that's because it's solid state, with no moving parts. That's right: no moving parts, so it draws less power, runs cooler, and handles conditions no ordinary drive could live through. It will withstand 15 g's of vibration and can handle up to 1000 g's of shock.

Now give it four MILLION hours mean time between failures, and your data just might out-live you! Perfect for mission critical storage or rugged environments (well, maybe not scuba diving yet) while being kind to the environment at the same time (RoHS compliant). This is the sort of drive you hope to find in your paramedic's computer or your platoon leader's tank.

So if you want a hard drive rugged enough for combat or maybe even airport baggage handlers, this is certainly one to check out.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat to start, Now not so much

Pros: The drive worked pretty well for about 10 months.

Cons: After 10 months or so windows would bluescreen just after the boot screen. Saying something about a corrupt drive. i was able to connect it to my desktop via a usb adapter and pull off all my files. That is however the extent of what I can do with it now.

I am unable to do any of the following.
- Format
- Delete Files(Looks like they delete but then they reappear)
- Delete partition

Other Thoughts: I currently have an email out to RiData requesting an RMA#. Hopefully they will replace the drive quickly and I can see about changing my rating.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Quality

Pros: When it worked it was decent for an SSD.

Cons: Lasted only 2 weeks! I guess I got what I paid for.

Other Thoughts: I thought about getting another one but the time frame at which this model failed just wasn't worth it. Next time I'll just pay for a better model.

1 out of 5 eggsBummer

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work with my ATOM ION (ZOTAC IONITX-A-U) motherboard. The first unit that arrived wouldn't function (SATA interface error) and also threw up data errors when connected to another motherboard (Gigabyte K8N). NewEgg did a great job swapping it out via RMA, and the second unit has the same problem with the ZOTAC mobo, but works fine when connected to the gigabyte mobo. Unfortunately, I now have a SSHD that only works with the wrong computer.

2 out of 5 eggsSerious problems

Pros: Is a SSD.
Stores data.

Cons: Has trouble detecting on reboot.

Other Thoughts: I installed one of these on a server, intending it to run the host OS for some guest virtual machines. Solid state, so this would not be the point of failure, yes? Foolish thought. This drive is now stuck in a server in colocation three hundred miles away and only works on the first hard reboot. Remote boot control from my colocation provider surprisingly does not make it show up again either, though the rest of the system remains fine.

A real lemon. Do not buy this product.

Two eggs because it's always possible it's a compatibility issue with the motherboard - Supermicro X8SIE-F. If this is so, let me know RiDATA, I'd be glad to know if you deserved at least three...

3 out of 5 eggsSlow for SSD

Pros: Fast access time, low energy use. Works with SATA on motherboard

Cons: Won't work with my external USB. Slightly nonstandard size requires tweeking external enclosure. Only 1/2 to 2/3 as fast as first generation Samsung SLC. Only 1/4 the speed of OCZ Vertex MLC. Would take 3 in Raid 0 to polute a slow PCI bus. Speed was tested using an old HD benchmark NBench on SATA motherboard connectors. I used Diskpar to provide each with 128 sector offset before testing

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these SLC drives. I own 7 Samsung SLC and a couple of OCZ Vertex. All of these drives are 30 GB for Raid 10 on Linux File Server and boot drives. I can't return the RiData but I would if I could. Bought for 134 on sale but now would have rather had better performing drives for that price. Al of the drives I bought were within 10 dollars of the same price on surplus, sale, or closeout.

5 out of 5 eggsMust buy

Pros: I bought it for a baseline Toshiba laptop. It is amazing!!! This laptop is usable in less than 50 seconds. This time includes POST, booting and loading of trendmicro anti-virus program. I got two of these when price was in 130's.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I moved from Vista to Win7. It takes only 10 to 12GB. It allows me to have more usable space on disk. On my desktop I am using it as a boot drive. Same great results.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: SSD's are awesome. I got one of these for my laptop, and it's improved it in every way. It's faster, gets better battery life, and the tiny vibrations that used to be caused by my hard disk drive are completely gone. No moving parts = awesome. Uses practically no electricity = awesome. FAST = awesome.

Cons: None. None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: If you can't figure out how to mount a 2.5" drive in a desktop chassis, you probably aren't qualified to do so much as open up your computers case. They're called mounting brackets, and if you're spending $150+ on a hard disk, then you have nothing to complain about if you need to spend another 8 bucks on a set of 2.5"-to-3.5" hard drive mounting brackets. Again, if you can't figure that out, you shouldn't be rooting around inside of a computer in the first place.

I tested this drive on my desktop before moving it to my laptop, and my motherboard (Asus P5k Deluxe) had no troubles recognizing it. The reason some people are having issues with it is because they're using Nvidia chipsets with outdated drivers (shame, shame.)

5 out of 5 eggsThis is the best product of the year!

Pros: we bought the RIDATA 2.5" SATA SSD. It is true 3.0G/s, that is SATA II. Tested in my notebook and desktop. Both worked!!! I do have Gigabyte nVidia 680i motherboard, after down load nVidia driver, the computer recognized it as a regular hard drive.

However the speed of loading Windows XP II is much faster, about only 20 minutes, and the booting time is only 22 seconds!

I am also an gamer, loading Call 4 Duty & Crysis is only 1/4 of the time using hard drive.

I believe, Solid drive is the future of computer. Hard drive now is the slowest part in the whole system, but with solid drive, the overall performance increases a lot!!

When use it in laptop, it is so quite, can not even tell whether it exists! Plus the battery life is doubled due to less power consumption!

Can not be happier!!

Read their website, they got a lot of adwards and RIDATA brand solid drive is the best choice from the editors. i totally agree!

Cons: no! if the price is lower, I may buy more. I heard they performed much better under RAID 0. Will try it later.

Other Thoughts: Their website really helps a lot! And it tells how to get the 2.5" adaptor switch it to regular 3.5" regular hard drive size and screw it to hard drive bay.

1 out of 5 eggsbad

Pros: Would be nice if it worked or was compatible with my stuff.

Cons: Ritekusa tech support trying to get this to work with any of my systems. This is my second one after sending the first one back, and still no go. Their tech support is unhelpful, unavailable, and misleading.

Other Thoughts: To say I'm getting very angry at this expensive piece of equipment is an understatement.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing RiDATA SSD product!

This customer had compatibility issue with nVidia chipset main board. Our tech support did provide the general solution to him before identify the detail problem.

Like the other customer previously had nVidia 680i main board, he could not find the SSD when boot up. We checked with nVidia motherboard manufacturer and got the answer from them. They update the driver, so with the new driver downloaded, the problem is solved.

Here is the link for the update driver for nVidia chipset motherboard:

For any other tech issue, please check out the support site:

“Best of CES 2008” and “Best Tech for Small Business by CNN & Fortune Magazine” award-winning RiDATA SSD offers the best quality product and superior support, for more detail, please visit: http://www.
