Ridata Lightning CF 4GB
This review is from: RiDATA Lightning Series 4GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model RDCF4G-233X-LIGC-D
Pros: Fast Read/Write compared to a lot of other Flash media
Cons: MLC instead of SLC (SLC is faster and has more write cycles ie longer MTBF)
Other Thoughts: I have been using these to replace Harddrives in various equipment. If you get the right adapter you have no problems.... but some adapters can be a problem (not being seen on some older socket 7 equipment) I have an XP Pro box (Via C3 550MHz 256M ram) that uses a very small footprint XP (via NLITE) I have setup to be a Winamp music machine for background music. It has a total 8GB using 2 of these and an addonics adapter. Plays MP3 background music 24/7/365 and has had no problems in over a year. I have disabled the paging file and done all the XP tweaks you find on google for solid state drive use (with the exception of the win embedded write filter.
