Mach Xtreme Technology Inc., a worldwide leader in top performance, high reliability and user-friendly designed PC components, today unveiled DIY Series SATA2 SSD. This tiny MX-DIY disk-on-module is implementing advanced design with robust performance and energy efficiency.

The new DIY Series SSD is the latest addition to the MX Technology lineup of innovative solid state drives. This disk puts the very latest storage technology in users' hands and sets a new benchmark for compact sized boot drives. This series is offering hardware-modding enthusiast a flexible storage solution in a form factor that is 10 times smaller than a standard 2.5" SSD, and weights over 10 times less. The postage stamp sized SSDs are available in two design versions: vertical and horizontal. The disk-on-modules are designed to tackle a range of storage applications, including operating-system booting, data logging, application hosting, caching, and fast data backup. It is fully compliant with AHCI standard and thus is truly plug and play solution where no drivers. In addition, this series requires no SATA signal cable, reducing latency times and improving data signal stability - it is a must have item for any serious hardware-modding enthusiast.



The MX-DIY drive delivers best-in-class read and write speeds clocking in at up to 220MB/s read and 80MB/s write along with superior durability (2.5 million MTBF) and power efficiency under 1.2W compared to mainstream 2.5" SATA 3Gb/s drives.

Available in capacities of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DIY SATA disk-on-modules come backed with 2 Year Warranty and outstanding after-sales service.

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.

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
