Yay. One more SSD that's still too small and prohibitevly expensive.

With so many good Indilinx Eco drives out there, and with most being cheaper and a tiny bit faster
So, which fast booting SSD would you reccomend for a CHEAP build?

Come back next year, or buy one with slow write speeds.

I don't know, but there seems to be something wrong with the (design of the) micro USB connector.

Edit : To clarify, I meant that it should have been protected more. Current USB 2.0 microUSB ports doesn't look that fragile.

Upon closer look, it seems like a plastic pin was far too protruding and pushing the cable in pushed it backwards, snapping the whole plastic contraption behind.

Check the last page. The rule of thumb is to test things before taking them apart because taking them apart is the bit that usually breaks them 95% of the time. Unfortunately, this time it was the other way around and I didn't have another. The plastic should fit flush in the metal housing.

Either design fail or manufacturing fail.

So excusse me if I get it wrong but an USB SSD is basically an USB key with bigger memory (without the SATA support of course). Or is there another difference?

read/write speeds?

The circuits will support much faster read & writes compared to a regular USB stick

That could take some time.

Thank's for the explannation. So it is not the same flash technologie than in regular USB stick.

USB sticks use cheap and low quality NAND because the read-writes are very little - you only use it for occasional use. SSDs use high quality NAND (hence the price) because the read-writes are more frequent. USB 3 drives are starting to change this a bit, because to get the speed requires better hardware.
