    I agree. I hope Micron/Crucial will take a good look at this and start offering their M500 SSD's in an external form factor. I know many people who would die to buy one of these!

    I suppose you could use the M500 series with an enclosure, but I've heard that those have some speed losses compared to native port support. Plus a lot of aveage consumers consider that ghetto/ are unwilling to do something like that.
