Nice. I've been thinking of using mSATA on my next ITX build.

Would it be worth having a Crucial mSATA 256gb and an M4 256mb? Would there be any benefit in speed atall?

Tempted to pick up a 128GB mSATA for my Z68XP-UD3 and finally make use of the mSATA slot.

The biggest issue with mSATA3 drives is... motherboards having only mSATA2 or no mSATA at all.

"...without needing to make room for a full-size SSD."

I see what you mean, considering laptops, ultrabooks, mini-ITX, etc. But what first popped into my head was "yeah, such a burden, finding room for a 2.5" drive." Then again, sitting to my immediate right is a mid-tower with an ATX board. To my left is a Mini-ITX...with 4 3.5" HDDs and space for a 5th.

I'm all for this. In my (hopefully not-too-distant) future is a stupid-small Mini-ITX build. I'd like to go smaller, but the price/performance you get in Pico-ITX and the like is atrocious. In that sort of scenario, not having to make space for even a 2.5" drive would be awesome.

What I'd really like is to be able to run Windows on an RPi or a competitor. I really want to build a car PC that would fit in the head-unit spot in the dash, but I don't want to futz with Linux. Nothing against Linux, but Linux and I don't get along. I'd like to concentrate on the build, not getting software working. Seems the only way to get that will be Pico-ITX, though, since it would need to be x86 (no chance I'm tearing apart a Win8RT tablet, either - there will be no Metro in my car PC.)

Hmm...how long until I can pick up a Medfield phone cheap on eBay?

Nice drive. There is an interesting article about the performance of this and other SSD's on Toms Hardware where showing large performance drop off's when it's more than half filled with data. I


I'm still probably going to get one. :-)
