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
FIXED DISK MODE (Is NOT detected as removable) making it easy to partition as you wish
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.
These are faster than the Disk on Module 2Gb units from emphase from over a year ago but a bit slower than the latest DOM's DOM's are more expensive but have longer life expectancy (if SLC)
I have also replaced the drives in some Javelin Viper Point of Sale Terminals but only have a few months history with them
