    Great product!

    posted by Aleksandar on 04/04/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Great product! Its very useful when building silent PC or router (m0n0wall for example). The price is really great - local retailers here charge 5-10 times more for the same product. It also support UDMA, you can set it to master or slave via the jumpers o...
    Cons:
    I cant really find any cons, except it would be great if they included a power adapter to molex for example.

    Great for embedded linux

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Good build quality, works well with a 8GB compact flash. This way, the compact flash is seen as a standart hard disk drive by the BIOS: and so installing Linux on it was a piece of cake ! Moreover, build quality is good even if paid this item 2 bucks ! He...
    Cons:
    No cons. Items is very cheap compared to local reseller (in France such an item costs 10 times the price if you are lucky).

    Cheap and slow SSD for everyone!

    posted by boober on 11/10/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    At first, the price is adequate :) In Russia, retailers tries to charge me with fifteen bucks for this chip-free PCB with a pair of connectors. Here, now I have a fine-working device for any of my old CFs, and i can build a silent PC for a not-so-heavy appl...
    Cons:
    On heavy things like Windows, the speed is completely depending of your card's parameters. Either it has UDMA mode, or not, and...
