4 out of 5 eggs What more could you expect 03/20/2012

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow S50 Series 2.5" 16GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SS050S2/16G

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I put this in my little laptop and run Fedora on it. It does the job, the laptop is much snappier with it than with the 5400 rpm drive it came with. From a dollar/capacity standpoint SSDs are "expensive" but form a dollar/speed standpoint SSDs are monumentally cheap.

I have had this for maybe 10 months and a differend SSD in my main desktop for about 2 years. Never had any sort of reliability issue with either, but always have backups like any reasonable person should.

5 out of 5 eggs Works 08/05/2010

This review is from: SYBA SD-CF-2IDE-U Dual Ultra IDE to Compact Flash Adapter

Pros: It works. Like someone else, I am using this as the system disk for a FreeNAS setup. No hassles, plug it in and go.

Cons: No mounting bracket. This is annoying. I ended up using a motherboard standoff to mount it. Would have gladly paid a touch extra for a bracket.

Other Thoughts: Using a 2gb Sandisk Ultra II CF card.

Pros: Big storage, low cost. When these things are on sale, you'd be stupid not to buy one.

Cons: Costs money.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to supplement my 3x 1tb Seagate Barracudas in my RAID5 NAS running FreeNAS. I backed up all the data, destroyed the RAID, added this drive, rebuilt and everything seems to be smooth sailing.
