Perfect as a ZFS zil log device
Pros: * SLC NAND - perfect for zil usage
Cons: * minus one egg because of Newegg's less than clear description. They have the interface listed on the card as SATA. Though 'technically' correct, CFast cards are based on the Serial ATA bus, the interface on the card is not a standard SATA interface!! You will need a CFast adapter in order to connect them to your standard motherboard SATA ports because the power connector on CFast cards is a 17-pin connector vs. the 15 pin connector on a standard SATA hard drive. Also, the connector on the CFast cards is female, unlike SATA hard drives that feature male connectors. I cound't find any CFAST adapters on Newegg, but Addonics has a few to choose from. I settled on part #ADSACFAST-N
