Pros:

Crazy Fast Random Reads
Low power consumption

Cons:

EXPEN$IVE
Not as fast (linear read) as a 7200 RPM drive.
Will wear out MUCH faster than a "real" hard drive.
Buyer's Remorse (see end of review).

Other Thoughts:

I got this as a HD replacement for my ACER Aspre 5102 laptop (4200 RPM HD).

Using nLite to do a fresh XP MCE install (no pagefile, no prefetch, reduced overall size to ~500 MB) and this CF card with SYBA CF to 44-pin IDE adapter (newegg item N82E16812186050) I have reduced my laptop boot time from 3 min 56 sec to an amazing 36 seconds!

RoadKil's Disk Speed reports 0.26ms access time, 48.33MB/sec peak read, avg. linear read of 30.03MB/sec, with an overall "Score" of 31,103.9

Compare that to my (freshly defragmented) OEM 4200 RPM drive results of 18.10ms access time, 33.02MB/sec peak read, avg. linear read of 21.15MB/sec, with an overall "Score" of 259.2

I guess if I had it to do over again I *might* consider a 5400 RPM HD with 10x the capacity for about half the price...or a 266x card...or a 300x card with lower capacity... I guess I have a little buyer's remorse but it's STRICTLY because of the price and slight lack of research on my part. I'm not deducting any eggs for tha
