Solid state hard drives are increasingly popular, but suppose you don't want or need to replace your internal drive? Lexar has an answer with this external SSHD.

Give up to 4 GB of your data the rugged portability of a solid state drive, and reap the quiet reliability benefits of a drive with no moving parts. Uses the ExpressCard interface for easy installation and removal from your laptop. It works with Windows' ReadyBoost, to speed the loading of your software, and it is Vista compatible.

5 out of 5 eggsHave the 8gb Model But SAME Speed

Pros: Cheap solution to fill up a empty expresscard slot, Fast enough to boot ubuntu from, Faster then my 98% of my flash drives

Cons: Painfully slow random read but i don't have to deal with this since I am usually transferring files in GB form

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a way to get 4 more gb in a netbook that supports expresscard or just something to use ready boost this is a cheap solution!

4 out of 5 eggs

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speed Boost for Vista

Pros: Inserts flush into slot. Does not protrude from laptop as a thumb drive would do so it will not accidently get bumped or knocked out.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsIts external storage.

Pros: It sits inside your laptop so you do not have to worry about removing it all the time.

Cons: Its a usb 4 gig memory stick in an express card.

Other Thoughts: Was dissapointed when my brand new Dell latpot did not have an express card slot. I guess thats what happens when IT keeps buying the same exactp laptop model for over 3 years. I would have to buy a 25$ adapter to make it work. Make sure you have an Express slot first.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, cheap

Pros: Sits flush in Macbook Pro.

Cons: About the same price as a USB flash drive.

Other Thoughts: Nice if you need a small external drive connected most of the time but don't like USB drives hanging off the side of your laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsReadyboost

Pros: Great for ready boost under vista 64 since i have a laptop this makes it so i don't have to worry about breaking one of my many thumbdrives makes a real difference booting average transfer speed is around read 20MBps and round 15MBps write this is mostly because the express card isnt hooked up to an express bus in a Lenovo its usb

Cons: i cant really think of any

Other Thoughts: great if you want readyboost in a laptop and you dont want a usb drive hanging off the side of your laptop all the time

5 out of 5 eggsGood removeable storage solution

Pros: Removeable storage if your laptop is equipped with Expresscard34/54 slot.

Cons: Requires Expresscard 34/54

Other Thoughts: If you do not have an Express card sot then go with an external mini-harddrive instead.

4 out of 5 eggsFits snug.

Pros: -no protruding parts! I used this to replace my Sandisk Cruzer Crossfire USB2.0 ReadyBoost cache memory. Fits in the ExpressCard slot w/o a problem and I free up the previously used USB2.0 port.

Cons: -Only runs USB2.0 speeds, not PCI-Express

Other Thoughts: Still a great replacement to use for Vista's ReadyBoost cache. This entire unit is just being used purely for that, nothing else.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent for the price

Pros: $5.99, 4GB, $5.99, free shipping, $5.99

Cons: Needed to format the drive to NTFS after two days of use.

Other Thoughts: Would show up with 0GB capacity in windows. My WinVista laptop could not reformat it. I had to use a virtual machine on a MacBook Pro to do it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice addition

Pros: I'm using it as a Readyboost drive on my laptop. I have 4 GB of RAM and combined with another 4 GB of flash storage, the hard drive activity light is rarely ever on.

Cons: None that I've noticed.

Other Thoughts: Probably not a great device to use for file storage since the interface it uses isn't found on most computers... but if you have a laptop running Vista or Windows 7 with an Express Card slot, you can't go wrong for the price.
