    Real competition in the form of mSATA SSDs, but I am quite happy we are given alternatives to upgrade older rigs.

    Speeds are crap and the SATA connector placement doesn't make sense, they should've rotated it 90 degrees so the body doesn't get in the way of adjacent SATA ports.

    Yeah, clearly limited by channels, but obviously beside the point. Like you said, older systems or when you absolutely, positively don't want to run any more cables or take up any more space than the room between your sata port and the interior edge of your case...that's pretty neat. I could certainly see applications for it.

    So instead it's in the way of your video card?

    those are around for longer time, it's not that new as i saw them years ago on ebay as "sata dom" disk on module :p

    i always wonder if they don't test their products, there are no or ultra rare sata to sata PORT cables to move the ssd out of the way blocking other sata ports


    yes i know that these devices are used for industrial pc's or display pieces to run an custom linux/windows and do just one task.. but

    why create such a design fail, hey make it wider next time or even thicker!

    It appears that some pertinent information was omitted from this article, namely that this SSD is available in a vertical or horizontal configuration (hence the 2 sets of measurements). It also doesn't help that Mach Extreme apparently only provides 1 image of the drive, and doesn't specify which model it is of (although one would assume it's horizontal, but considering Mach Extreme thinks a Flash website is cool in this day and age, anything is possible).

    Also, the speeds on these things are even more appalling at low capacities. At 8GB you're looking at 85MB/s R and 20MB/s W.
    Baum says thanks.

    I dont understand all the complaints. This is not for an enthusiast workstation, but for an "industrial" application. You use this instead of a HDD or USB stick in a dedicated application like NAS, router/firewall, Scanner, micro HTTP server. Perfect for the job.

    If you checked their website, they've got both versions already:
    I-shaped and L-shaped
    and SLC are not that bad - 16GB R 220 / W 150

    mh yeah industrial build with non prooven ssd tech vs hd tech no start a fight :p

    no if these are not fast with random i/o as caching ssd's i don't get it, just eaten up by msata ssd's and their insanely adapters there are some half size msata ssd to micosata or zif availible.... just pr0n to get those inside some very old systems
