This review is from: Kingston 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC SMS200S3/120G
Pros: No issues at all. Snapped in an worked at advertised speed.
Cons: mSATA is about to be replaced by NVME over the next 2 years.
Other Thoughts: Put 4 of these into an Addonics AD4MSPX2 PCIe adapter and set to RAID0. Read speeds were excellent, write speeds were normal but not exceptional. Makes a great scratch/render disk for video or graphics editing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Setup is easy. Make sure you plug in a wireless keyboard-mouse dongle before you turn it on.
Cons: Overflows the graphics on most TV's. The desktop goes off the screen by a short distance. You have to watch your mouse closely for corner clicking. Same thing happens with the Intel sticks.
Noticed that it bleeds RF into other HDMI devices, like Chromecast and causes snow bars. Have to either extend the stick or extend other HDMI device farther apart.
Need USB hub to run keyboard and webcam.
2Gb of RAM is barely enough.
Other Thoughts: I use this as a Skype appliance for large home TV's. With a Logitech HD webcam attached via USB on top of the TV, don't need to buy a proprietary solution. Tested for up to 3 callers at same time so far with no jitter. Lots of flexibility as I can use Google Hangouts, Oovoo or other video services.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy install, no issues. Met all performance specs
Cons: No issues of note
Other Thoughts: Installed in an Addonics 4 slot mSATA PCIe adapter using Marvell chipset.
No more spinning disk now. All SATA SSD.
Lower voltage, lower heat.
Almost the end of my mSATA purchases. NVMe is coming around the corner now.
