Homebrewed 32GB SSD drive, around $530


So you want a flash-based hard drive solution for your notebook or UMPC but you don’t want to spend four-figures to do it. No prob if your device takes a 2.5-inch IDE drive. Just nab this 44-pin Compact Flash adapter from Addonics for $30. Then, do some on-line shopping for two 16 GB Compact Flash cards; I found ’em on Amazon (affiliate link) for $249.99 each. Pop the CF cards in the adapter, replace your hard drive and you’re set. Anybody up for dropping the $530 to let us know how it performs?
