OCZ Nocti mSATA SSDs are the ideal upgrade for the latest notebooks and desktop systems with limited storage space. Unlike a standard drive, OCZ Nocti mSATA SSDs are smaller with no outer casing, making them a cost-effective solid state storage solution. Perfect for creating a dual-boot laptop or desktop system where all your storage slots are filled, OCZ mSATA SSDs allow for increased capacities, high speeds, and low power consumption in a small form factor. Based on the high-performance SandForce processors, Nocti mSATA Series is the ideal upgrade for enthusiast and professional mobile workstations and tablets.
Pros: Thanks NotDeadYet. I too have an EEE 901 and was dreaming the same dream. Thanks for the heads up. For systems that have this design, I see great potential. Recently tested an Intel SSD (from Newegg) in a socket 478 systemboard and it was amazingly fast, but still just a 478. The test did prove that that particular older board could still be repurposed.
Cons: Does not fit an Asus EEE 901

Mistaken Mpata slot for a Msata slot
Pros: Speedy little drive, impressed with the price to performance ratio. Boot time is fast and my OS is snappy
Cons: 30Gb didn't cut it for me. i thought I could get Windows 7 and all my common programs and maybe one game on this little guy, but to my dismay I have to dump Office and and any games onto my storage drive.
Other Thoughts: Like the guy above, I mistook my mpata slot for a msata (it was for an older gaming laptop, ocz fl92) It sat around until I got a msata to sata I/II converter, then threw it in my g73jh.

Pros: So, while I am an IT professional, I don't deal with mSATA much. The only thing I use it in is my EEE 901, which I bought right after they came out (so it's been a while). Well, I thought I could extend the life of the 901 a bit with a new SSD. The specs are great! Well, sort of. I missed one.
Cons: The width of this card is 50mm, whereas most others are close to 5.88mm. Only 0.8 MM difference, probably just different card widths, no problem. YES PROBLEM!! You see, a 50.88 wide card will fit into a mSATA slot but a 50mm fits a mPCI-e slot. Go figure. Well, I never have run out of stupid, so when the holes didn't line up I decided that it would be best just to ream them out so they DID fit. Yeah. Didn't work out. Don't know if the card was DOA or if I killed it, but one thing I know for sure, it doesn't work anymore and I can't return it.
Other Thoughts: Now, I hate to give this SSD a bad rating because I didn't actually get to use it. But I also hate to give it a good rating because I'm spiteful and really disappointed. So I'm shooting for middle of the road. Oh, I also tried it in an mPCI-e slot, it fit real nice, but still didn't work. However that was after I reamed out the holes, so it may have already been dead.
