Compatible with all mSATA interface devices, such as desktop PC, laptop, ultra-book, tablet PC, point of sales terminal (POS).
why would anyone pay $260?
Because that wouldn't fit, and this drive is for a totally different requirement, as you could no doubt deduce from the size and different connector layout
These are mSATA not m.2, but agreed.
You'd have to have a pretty specific use case otherwise a 2.5" SATA drive for under $80 would give you the same results. Sure you'd find mSATA at a better price if you really needed it though.
msata is getting hard to find new though. Its obsolete, but if you are handy with a screw driver, then Samsung T5 external SSDs are your best bet.
$80 for 128gb 😂
You guys have to be kidding. These are the most bullshit prices I've seen for a technology that barely took off and is long past EOL.
480GB Kingston for less than half the price of your 512GB.
lol. they lowered it right after this.
Nope it's not 2008.
No thanks.. whats Orico? Last I heard they made cookies.
They make all the accessories (USB hubs and shit) for computers that you usually find in Officeworks. Dunno if I'd trust flash memory from them though based on how many of their expensive hubs I've seen die for no reason.
my current one had its LED indicator die after 3 months but the hub itself is still working fine.
I watched probably 5 of 30 USB 3.0 hubs die for no reason within a year. These hubs weren't cheap either.
@Tacooo: Was thinking of getting one of their pricey powered usb hub till I saw this comment …
@LurvinOZB: should literally have a disclaimer with "buyers discretion"
Surely shucking a Samsung T5 is a waaay better deal?
depends how handy people are with tools in order to shuck the drive ….there are technically inept people,
Hey op, what's the ambient temperature range for these drives?
Operation Temperature: 0 - 70 ℃
Thanks OP, too low for my usage
MSata hard to find these days. Useful if your old laptop only had this slot. Also my old PC has an MSata slot for Intel srt, which is useful in specific use cases
yep, as technology trends change it gets to a point of scarcity and prices go back up due to drop off in manufacturing…. i remember we had a $10k piece of equipment, 20 years old and it needed a 16 bit processor replaced , cost us $100’s for the cpu as they haven’t been in a long time and some companies specialise in out of production electronics at inflated prices rather than selling at clearance or throw in dumpster.
I mean what sort of speeds would you get if you put it in to a sata converter ? in a console ?
This thing have Dram ?
