Photofast CR-9000: DIY SSD Drive Hands-on
Last week we introduced the latest DIY (Do It Yourself) SSD drive from Photofast, the CR-9000. Well, we got it hands on… but, unfortunately, we don’t have enough SD cards to fully test it (sorry…).
What we can tell you is, the CR-9000 with its red color is quite a stylish SSD drive, . Contrary to the other DIY SSD drive we tested here, at Akihabranews.com, this one seems to be stronger thanks to its metallic enclosure, and is also cheaper.
Notice that an IDE version is also available. However, the Photofast logo was written on the wrong side. If you plug it into your laptop, you won’t see the logo (OK, it’s a minor detail…)
In case you forgot, this SSD Drive accepts up to six 32GB SDHC cards in RAID 0, providing a maximum of 192GB.
And According to the manufacturer, you can get a reading speed of 130MB/s, and a writing speed of 85MB/s.
