1 out of 5 eggs Not Drobo compatible 03/09/2014

This review is from: Kingston 60GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SMS200S3/60G

Pros: Good price, good brand, small form factor

Cons: I bought it for my new Drobo 5N which refuses to use it due to a cache flushing issue with the SSD's Sandforce controller. Be sure to look at the Drobo tech notes for a compatible mSata drive since it needs cache flushing completion before acknowledgement to prevent data loss on a power failure.

Newegg specs say: "mSATA interface - fully compliant with industry standard, easy to fit, guaranteed to work" While I could have spent lots of time researching the nuances of the Drobo's mSata port, I had no idea I'd need to until it didn't actually work. The drive may be fine for other purposes, just not mine, hence the one egg.
