- Mini-SATA (mSATA)
RE: Good but didn't last 01/04/2014
OK this is the second review- i didn't check F/W or anything to see if its the exact same model drive or not. Put it in- installed and its working fine. The RMA was lightning fast, even over holiday weekend and the terrible USPS..
I already bought another one, i'm thinking newer the computer better it will run. Lower use- I wont use Msata on older style chip set pc's anymore. These weren't designed for 3/4 year old computers
Gets extremely HOT- burn your fingers hot -150F ish- could of just been all the work it had just completed - not sure. In the drives defense it was an older laptop with an X9 extreme CPU.
Tried to install to DELL PRECISION M6500 by itself, thats a no go. The Dell bios is NOT capable of reading the Msata without the regular SATA slots # 0 or #1 populated. Dell bios turns off the msata slot when nothing detected in the big slots- same thing it does with dual vs quad core cpu's and the extra memory slots- no 4 core's - no 4 memory slots.
