Create you own 2.5” SSD Drive yourself!

Are you getting tired of your heavy, noisy, and old hard disk? Do you dream of assembling your own SSD (Solid State Disk)? Well, Century gives you that possibility with their SDB25SD, an enclosure that can receive up to four 2GB SD cards (SDHC is not supported) for a total of 8GB. Even if the idea is great, the lack of support for SDHC makes this solution not very appealing, as Vista, for example, cannot install on an 8GB partition. However, XP and Linux will install without any problems.

    If this supported 4GB sd cards then it might be reasonable; given you can now buy 8GB sdhc cards, put them in a USB card reader and boot the computer off usb, this product is already obsolete!

    Answer to the previous comment : The older Laptop Motherboards DO NOT have boot from USB support,AND usually they CANNOT work with the new, larger 2,5″ Hdisks.
    So in these cases,it still remains the only replacement !!! >>> Not obsolete at all !

    I do believe that would come under the fact that those computers you are talking about would be obsolete. And though they may be obsolete, some of us still use them for DOS purposes. A lot of 2-way radios need to be programmed in pure DOS.

    Have you been tested this SSD assembley, How about every slot instead of 4pcs 2gb SD put in 4gb or 8gb. It is good or not?

    My wife has a DELL Lattitude notebook for cira 1996, which is very happy with. Its a Pentium III with 384Mb RAM. It runs PuppyLinux, and despite my suggestions to part with 150euros, she won’t buy a newer notebook. We digress.

    The 5Gb HDD is obsolete and full. Simply solution was to buy a CF-IDE> converter and stick a cheap 16Gb CF card into it. Peanuts from HongKong via Email (Be specific about the CF-USB cards because I bought two different ones and I could only boot from one).

    I would not bother with the above, but a simple CF-USB card plugged into the IDE controller and cheapo CF card does the trick.

      @Not-Obsolete:

      Is that model a Dell Latitude CPx? I grew up on that model, because my parents gave to me because the damn thing just doesn’t need to be maintained. Love that aging clunker to death.

    NB. Transcend made (make) some 4Gb non-SDHC cards. I bought one from Amazon (UK) 3 years ago for my HP 4700 PDA because it would not suppoer SDHC.
