Deal Details

Last Edited by kh0rneflakes April 16, 2016 at 06:41 PM
I've long been looking for a cheap 64GB SSD for a few of my boxes (Intel NUCs and couple of laptops). Mostly running WMC, so I need very minimal space on the boot drive. 32GB would've been enough, but even used 32GB go for about $20 on eBay. Just browsed Micro Center and happened to see this. This is obviously for less demanding applications, and older machines with mSATA slots. Most newer machines use M.2. Now I can repurpose those 120 and 240 2.5" SSDs that I have in those.

I guess I could use this for my HTPC... the hard drive is by far the loudest piece in it. With this, I could usb the hard drive and it wouldn't run unless I was actively using it.
now I need an msata to sata adapter though... and i might as well get a passive heat sink. I suppose I could also disable my 120mm fan and just make some cardboard duct to direct my power supply airflow over the heat sink... that should be a good quiet machine, right?

Be aware, to use this in a desktop you'll need a passive adapter. Good news is that they are cheap (sub-$5)

Should be sorted by price. Be aware the cheapest ones ship from Asia, so be willing to wait longer for those.

Unless you have a mSata port, which I do.

I've been thinking about putting the os on a msata drive, but since msata is being phased out, is it better to get an m.2 drive and use an m.2 to msata adapter?

Anyone ever tried it?

Btw - good deal if you're close to a MC Store.

What do you mean by better? It's never better to add an adapter unless necessary. If you have an msata port then keep it native. Same with m.2 keep it native by waiting for a deal on it if you can.
