$5 fixed shipping. This thing should be a tank for reliability, not sure about performance. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&s...15rtnvujAv

OK, this is a 7 year old drive, and if you need an SSD for a laptop or desktop, you're probably better off buying a current model, which will be probably be faster and use less power. Note that it only has a SATA II interface.

However, if you're looking to build an SSD RAID set for a write-heavy application, this might be what you need. You won't get the performance of a modern array, but the price is a fraction of that.

Here's a contemporaneous review [storagereview.com].

Also want to point out that, as shown in the teardown in the article, the drive has capacitors for unexpected power loss. This is a key feature in enterprise drives, which don't normall show up in consumer product.

It is essentially tiny UPS for the SSD which ensures data is stored from its buffer to the flash memory in an event of power loss.

Due to the high write capability, this might be a good solution for an always-on HTPC (like a TiVo, that's always recording).

Won't fit in almost any laptop. It's 15mm thick, meant for drive trays in server racks. For reference, laptop drives are 9.5mm thick.
