You're on a roll with SSD deals today huh? For $2/$6 more than the Patriots without rebate hassles might be the better deal since it has better reviews.


Thanks.

Yeah, I plan on buying one today so I have been doing the research. Just not sure which to get. This one has no rebates but have to wait for shipping. Frys is just down the street from my office so can pick up after work but more money up front. Ill probably just buy this one.

Anyone know if putting an SSD in an external case would give better performance than a flash drive? Need either external SSD or a flash drive for my car

It should be generally much faster than a flash drive. It will still be limited USB 2.0 technology unless your car has 3.0 support. But still this has a read / write of ~500/350 mbps. A high speed flash drive isn't even half of that usually.

That makes sense but I guess where im confused is if an external controller+USB would ruin any improvements that an SSD would make?

Yes, it will give you noticeable better performance than a flash drive. Of course, it all depends what are you comparing it with. I was using a SSD I bought from a deal in this site, that had horrible reviews regarding lack of reliability, and it worked fine as a gigantic USB flash drive for years. The speed, even over USB 2.0 was (and still is, although I stop using it) fantastic.

Purchased two of these sometime in the last year. One lasted 4 months. The other lasted about 7 months. For anyone wondering.

This brand has pretty bad reviews on Amazon.

I thought SSD would last 5x time longer than HDD?

Theoretically it should, but that doesn't mean that they're exempt from having faulty electronics or soldering within it.

It probably depends on how many read/write cycles too. But unless you are writing 1-5 TB a day, 4 or 7 months is way too short
