This review is from: SUPER TALENT FPM32GRSE 32GB Mini PCIe (SATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Pre-formatted NTFS, transfer speeds per spec, very affordable replacement for slower/lower capacity SSDs
Other Thoughts: This card went into my ASUS EeePC 1000 to replace the original 8G SSD. My warranty was over so it was time to take it apart :-)
While this is not the fastest replacement I could have purchased, it is noticably faster than the original 8G. I now dual boot W7 and Linux and there is plenty of space. The original (slow) 32G is still my data drive and is fast enough for my uses.
I am very satisfied with this card.
As others have noted, BIOS must be 0913 or higher to use SATA cards as replacement -- for either SSD -- in this netbook.
NOTE: The 8G is inside on the back of the mobo. Teardown of the EeePC is very easy but technical. The original 8G is a "shorty", the new card is normal length. There is plenty of room but the screw mounts for the 8G will not line up. I secured the new card by soldering on new screw mounts. Some have used double-sided foam or electrical tape, fishing line, etc. to secure the card.
